Principal's Welcome

All students who attend Sierra Charter School can discover success. As principal since the school’s inception in 1998, I have seen Sierra Charter School blossom from 12 students to more than 700 and am heartened as we continue our growth.

Knowing our students have their own unique skills, gifts and passions, our staff works one-on-one with each student to personalize their experience. Our school fills an important need and it’s an honor for all of us to come to school each day to help students meet their goals.

Our campus houses cozy cottage-style classrooms making students feel safe and comfortable. This warm setting creates a family-like atmosphere that is consistent throughout our program.

​Students experience a combination of independent study with hands-on classroom and lab work and other rigorous learning opportunities throughout the school year. Sierra Charter School guides each student to their full potential.

 Any student who is looking for an education that is customized to their needs, delivered by caring and expert teachers and is provided in a safe learning environment is welcome here. We know that you will discover success at Sierra Charter School.
