Principal's Message

On behalf of the administration and staff at Sierra Middle School, welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  Our theme for this school year is “You Matter” because every child and adult matter to us as we work together to provide the best education for your children. Here are some information that I think you will find helpful about our school.


  • Sierra is a personalized learning school that focuses on creating an engaging environment to meet the needs of   all students.

  • Sierra began full implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports last school year to encourage and reward good behavior.  The focus of PBIS is prevention, not punishment and includes restorative practices and community building circles.

  • Sierra has a focus on college & career readiness with an emphasis on A-G requirements, GPA, and the Learner Profile where students will set goals throughout the year.

  • Sierra has many enrichment activities such as 7th period clubs, middle school sports and intramurals.

  • Students’ social-emotional well-being is important to us, therefore we have 3 counselors (with one being a full-time mental health counselor) to provide support for your children.

I want to especially thank the Riverside Community for passing the Measure O bond.  This past summer, construction began in front of our school to expand our parking lot and add a new drop off zone and make it safer for our students.  After 62 years, we will finally have A/C in the gym. Thank you, Riverside Families! I look forward to another successful year of learning and growing.  All of the staff at Sierra Middle School look forward to serving you and your children this year.
