1st day of school was a BLAST!

Welcome to our New Principal!


Mrs. Christine L. Simmons

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Principal of Sierra Vista High School and to express how excited and honored I am to be here with you. 

My background in education goes back to my teenage years.  I began my career working at Perkins School for the Blind in Boston, Massachusetts as an instructional aide in the preschool program and houseparent for disabled adults.  After graduating from Keene State College, I began my formal teaching career at a boarding school in New Hampshire for struggling teens.  I taught junior high school and high school mathematics and became the director of programming.  I moved to California 18 years ago and was an elementary school teacher for the Val Verde Unified School District in Perris.  I came to Baldwin Park as an assistant principal 14 years ago.  Many of you will recognize my face from one or more schools that I have had the privilege of serving.   I was an assistant principal at Tracy Elementary and Foster Elementary for three years.  I spent the next three years at Foster as a principal before moving to De Anza for the next four years.  Always having a passion for students at the secondary level I moved to Sierra Vista Junior High and was the principal there for the past four years. 

Throughout the elementary and junior high school years you and your families work so hard to prepare for high school and beyond.  I cannot wait to celebrate with you as you walk across that stage after completing your senior year.  Thank you for welcoming me into your educational career and I look forward to our work together.

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

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:

  • Effective communicators and collaborators
  • Critical thinkers and problem solvers
  • Responsible individuals accountable for their actions
  • Digital-age learners
  • Respectful of diversity and the interdependence of people

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.
