Sierra Heights Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Horrible experience. Kindergarten, my daughter ended up having 4 different teachers. At the beginning her kindergarten had two teachers doing a work share. Who does this to those just starting school? Zero stability. The school fails to communicate effectively. Their dates and times of events are always wrong or just completely missing. The bus situation was atrocious. My daughter's bus was usually 30-45 min late every single day. Some days she didn't get home until 4:30 and we live right in front of the bus stop. There is no shelter for the children as they are forced to wait for pickup at the school by bus or parents. But hey, that's ok, it's not like it rains in Seattle or anything.Avoid this school like the plague.

The school has declined in recent years due to an administration change.

According to this website Sierra Heights does not have the best reputation. As with any school/event in life there are going to be bad experiences. So as a parent of a soon to be kindergartner I thought I would do my homework. I visited and researched this school. I interviewed everyone and anyone who had children who attend/attended Sierra Heights or knew children who attended Sierra Heights. I understand that everyone will have their own personal experience but I find a responsibility in promoting the good here. My son just started kindergarten at Sierra Heights this year and he LOVES it! His teachers are encouraging and supportive and have created an environment which he feels safe AND excited to go back to everyday. I am blown away by the communication between the staff and parents as well as the involvement of the parents with the school, either day to day or with after school programs and events. We are just a few weeks into our school year but the decision we made to send our child to Sierra Heights was the right one for us.

My daughter just finished 2nd grade and we're making plans to move so we can get into a better school. K - 1 was all right and then 2nd grade took a nose dive and I watched my child's self esteem tank. My first parent/teacher conference the teacher actually told me she hated teaching this year. I tried very hard to collaborate with the teacher to help my child succeed and found myself coming up with all the ideas and the teacher only shooting them down and then not coming up with any other ideas. Involvement with the VP pretty much felt like lip service. There were meetings to listen to me, but I kept getting pushed back to the ineffective teacher to work it out. Many of my requests for information or questions went unanswered by the VP despite multiple repeated attempts. By the end of year my daughter was crying in bed at night on a weekly basis because of school.
