Giving Students The Tools to Build a Better World

A hopeful future depends on astute minds and kind hearts. Every day our dedicated teachers help students connect academic experiences with ideals like ethics and empathy. By emphasizing self-knowledge, intellectual engagement, and care for others, Prospect Sierra creates the environment your child needs to thrive in all aspects of their lives.


Intellectual Engagement
Our students dive into every subject, studying different perspectives, unearthing new ideas, and working with their peers. At every grade, we help your child seek deep, meaningful understanding.
We nurture students in developing social-emotional awareness. Beginning in TK, your child will learn to identify their feelings, regulate emotions, and empathize with others.
Care For Others
At Prospect Sierra, we greet everyone by name, and they are respected and seen. Your child will grow to value compassion, community, and an understanding of the rights and needs of others.
