Sierra View Elementary opening in the fall of 1953 with ten teachers. During the 2009/10 school year, Sierra View adopted the Academics Plus Program school-wide. We are proud to have a very active PTA, beautiful garden, School Site Council, along with parent and community volunteers which help to create a positive learning environment for the students at our school.
Academics Plus Program Goals
Academic Focus - The Academics Plus Program focuses on reading, writing and math, rounded out by a solid curriculum in composition, science, history, and geography
Parent Involvement - An important element of Academics Plus is that parents are encouraged to actively participate in their children's education, and are given multiple opportunities to do so.
Focus on the Child - Development of the "whole" child is also stressed in Academics Plus. The program is designed to instill within each child confidence, a sense of responsibility, pride in accomplishment, and a positive self-image through academic achievement.
Joyful Learning Environment - The classroom setting in the Academics Plus Program utilizes whole group interaction, small groups, activities, individual seatwork and/or centers to help make the learning experience exciting and enjoyable.
