Junior High Program
Sierra Junior High Overview
Grades sixth through eighth are major stepping stones for future success in high school. With that in mind, we offer junior high students a variety of challenging academic courses and enriching extracurricular activities.
Academics & Enrichment Programs
Mathematics courses are taught on a completely individualized basis. Students must complete a set “target” each week,and they are encouraged to move ahead to complete more than the standard amount of work assigned in a year.We offer both physical and life sciences. Our junior high science curriculum prepares students for more advanced high school science.Social studies, literature, language arts, and foreign language are taught in a
traditional classroom lecture and group discussion format.Emphasis is placed on complete comprehension of assignments with regard to both homework and in-class work. Using a mastery system, students work to achieve 100% understanding of materials.
Small class size enables teachers to give individualized attention to each student. Class sizes range from 10 to 20.
