Welcome to the 2014-15 school year, Chieftain families!
Sierra High continues its tradition of excellence with the receipt of a 6 year WASC Accreditation term! Thank you to all who worked on this process and especially those who made time in their busy lives to meet with the visiting accreditation team this last Spring. The team recognized strong community support, numerous intervention programs, and the wide variety of options, athletics, and activities for our students- particularly for a small school.
We take pride in our smaller class sizes, family histories, and the ability to get to know all of our students. It takes quite a bit of work to bring the best of small school life as well as the variety of programs. None of this would be possible without the dedication of our staff. Teachers, custodians, secretaries, administrators, bus drivers, coaches, and many others go above and beyond every day to make great things happen for our students. They are the reason Sierra High continues to be recognized annually on the Best High Schools US News & World Reports listing.
In return, our students soar! Last year's graduating class received more than $800.000 in grants for college, trade schools, military scholarships, and apprenticeships. This was with a class size just over 100 students! Every bit earned through dedication and work. Award winners in academics, athletics, agriculture, character, arts, and technological competitions- the Chieftain name is known for traditions of honor and excellence because of our students.
I look forward to another amazing year! Follow us on Twitter @SierraUnified as well as this webpage and we will keep you updated on the many accomplishments of our Chieftain family.
