Sierra School At Eastern
Sierra School specializes in serving students facing learning, language, and social challenges.
With over a decade of experience, we know how to help children with special needs succeed - in the classroom, at home, and in the community.
Our mission is to build the confidence and competence of children facing learning, language, and social challenges through personalized, academic interventions; to prepare youth to become responsible adults who are able to participate in their communities and lead self-fulfilling lives; and to provide leadership and serve as a role model for improving the education of all students.
We are committed to maximizing our impact on the nation's most challenging student populations, with a particular focus on those who have experienced little or no success in the traditional school setting.
