Welcome to Sierra Vista High School, Home of the Dons. I am very proud to be the principal of a high school filled with the very best teachers, staff and students, with the support of excellent parents. We offer a variety of programs and opportunities for our students, but we never lose sight of our most important responsibility, which is that all of our students achieve high academic standards. We expect our students to be:
In addition to the qualities listed above, we expect our students to be college and career ready when they graduate from Sierra Vista High School. Our graduates attend top universities and receive thousands of dollars in scholarships every year, and many dedicate time back to Sierra Vista High School.
We offer many Advanced Placement courses, the Seal of Biliteracy, AVID, and a full range of art, music and athletic programs. For years we have successfully participated in music competitions and festivals which feature orchestra, choir and band. Our athletes are frequent league champions and participate annually in CIF competitions. We also have over thirty clubs and organizations for students to join, and we take pride in getting all students involved.
I invite all parents to visit our school and attend our activities to see what we have to offer here. Feel free to contact me if you ever have questions or concerns.
