Head of School
Where Every Person is Recognized and Valued
At Prospect Sierra we intentionally lead with love. We practice curiosity, compassion, and joy to build authentic connections with, and among, students so that everyone thrives as their full self and feels that they matter. Our teachers inspire students to seek deep, meaningful inquiry and understanding, leading to a love of learning for its own intrinsic rewards and personal growth.
Prospect Sierra is a community through which students, teachers, staff, parents, and community partners develop trust, demonstrate cooperation, show respect for one another, and develop perspectives that are founded on an understanding of the rights and needs of others.
As a learning community, we commit to diversity in our student body, teaching staff, and administration and take responsibility for centering the voices of those traditionally excluded because we know that diverse perspectives are necessary for academic depth and integrity.
We approach innovation as a way of thinking, learning, and engaging that helps us clarify intention, take action, and practice responsive stewardship of our communities and the planet.
Our teachers, administrators, and staff prioritize the continual improvement of curriculum and learning experiences, in and out of the classroom, to be challenging, engaging, relevant to today’s dynamic world, and meaningful to our students’ lives now and in their futures.
As educators, learners, and community partners, we lead with the knowledge that we are all connected and that our care for one another is essential to achieve mutual benefit and serve the greater good.
Our students combine in-depth disciplinary knowledge with academic, cognitive, and relational skills in order to define and solve problems creatively, take action in a rapidly changing global environment, and contribute positive impact in the world.
Our visionary strategic plan focuses on shaping a 21st-century ecosystem where everyone thrives—our students and families, staff, and alumni. Learn how we’re charting new territory in community development, emotional intelligence, and the financial sustainability of our employees.
