Sierra Vista Middle School Reviews
It is an average school.
This school is decent. Most of the teachers here know what they are doing. However, substitutes are, by far, one of the worst experiences here. Getting involved in a specific program is a great way to make friends and have fun, though. Academics can be stressful, especially with the new common core standards. Don't expect to sleep early towards the end of the year! As great as the teachers are, they like to cram tests, finals, and projects before school ends. Well, this is a great place to have lasting friendships and practice skills for high school, even though it needs some improvement.
