Notes for Prospective Students

The educational program at Prospect Sierra strongly emphasizes an integrated curriculum based on a framework of established themes.
Mathematics, literature, writing, art, music, science, world languages (French and Spanish language instruction begins in the fifth grade), social studies, service learning, physical education, and computer technology are incorporated into a positive experience for each student.
The faculty, librarians, and staff work closely together to connect the subject matter in meaningful ways.The project-based curriculum is designed to promote understanding and thoughtfulness.
Students are asked to think deeply and reflectively about facts, ideas, and experiences in an increasingly diverse society.
They are encouraged to make connections between their learning at school and their growing awareness of the outside world.
