Sierra Vista Elementary School is a small high achieving school in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The school is located in the El Sereno area and serves economically disenfranchised students. Because of our size 270 students and the fact that our API is 786, we are not entitled to many of the grants other schools receive for being Program Improvement. We are underfunded yet our staff makes an all out effort through fund raisers and giving extra time to make sure our students have the same opportunities as other kids. We assure each class gets at least one field trip per year and we are looking for ways to improve our limited technology. We have done very well in Math and Science and would like to continue empowering great thinkers.
