Sierra School at Eastern: Lower School

Sierra School at Eastern: Lower School is a nonpublic, special education school that serves students from Kindergarten through 8th grade and utilizes a unique academic model, an effective positive behavior management system and multiple mental health techniques to increase academic awareness, develop social skills and cultivate proper classroom behavior in each of our students. Our goal is to work along side the student to improve academic and social success so that the student can return to a least restrictive setting.

Our comprehensive state-approved curriculum adheres to all state standards and requirements, and it is delivered by a skilled and highly trained team of educators who are dedicated to their students’ success. They are supported by our state-of-the-art tutorial software and cutting-edge educational modalities. One of the ways we help our students learn and grow is by creating a strong sense of community on our campus. Each year, we provide an expanded menu of student-centered activities, like School Spirit Week, family lunches, our annual winter festival and talent show, and other fun, engaging events. Our goal is to expedite our students’ transition back to the public school system and mainstream society. We’re always looking for new ways to meet individual needs, highlight student strengths, build their self-confidence, and guide them toward personal success in school, at home, and in the community
There are many Responsibility Club offerings at the Sierra School at Eastern: Lower School, among them: Student Government, Auto Club, Art Club, Lawn & Garden Care Club, Yearbook Club, and the Sports League. Clubs take a break over the summer, but they resume each fall, with participation levels higher and higher each year! Responsibility Clubs provide our students with a great opportunity to learn new skills in an area of personal interest to them while also allowing them time to get to meet and socialize with students from classrooms other than their own. Students can belong to a maximum of two clubs at one time and must be on green or blue level in order to attend the bi-monthly meetings. All clubs are interactive and designed and planned to accommodate the needs of our specialized populations.

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!
