Students are referred by their school district to attend Sierra School and are generally in grades K–8 (aged 5 to 14). They face disabilities in a variety of areas, including Autism, Intellectual Disability, Emotional Disability, Multiple Disabilities, Speech and Language Disabilities, Other Health Impairments, Speech and Language Impairment, and more.
We are proud to employ certified special education teachers, marriage and family therapists, a speech therapist, and provide occupational therapy.
The clubs also build a sense of community within the student body. Student Government, for example, is responsible for planning our monthly “Big Event,” whereas the Art Club might be responsible for providing the decorations. The different clubs therefore work together to accomplish a joint goal, and this kind of interaction and collaboration provides limitless—and priceless!—opportunities for our students to learn and grow. Overall, the Sierra School at Eastern’s Responsibility Clubs give Sierra students a chance to participate in enriching activities while joyfully exploring their own personal strengths and preferences. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved!
