At Prospect Sierra, we know the importance of your child’s academic success – but we go a step further. To ensure their success outside of school, we know that intellectual engagement and careful, critical thinking is essential. Our students dive into every subject, studying different perspectives, applying their knowledge, unearthing new ideas, and working with their peers. With every experience and at every grade, our students learn to think on a deeper level.
At Prospect Sierra, we’ve long understood the importance of socio-emotional skills. As the key to optimal learning for your child, we give our students the tools to help them develop this awareness. They learn to identify their feelings (“What am I feeling now?”), regulate their emotions (“How can I go from anxious to calm when I take this test?”), and empathize with others (“My friend is sad. How can I help him?”).
At Prospect Sierra, everyone greets each other by name. We make time for sharing. We create places to discuss perspectives and we foster a climate where we truly care for our students and they genuinely care for each other. Your child will grow to value compassion, empathy, and community, because we believe building a better world starts with our personal relationships.
