School Description:
Prospect Sierra is an independent, co-ed K–8 school with 473 students and nearly 100 faculty and staff located on two beautiful El Cerrito campuses in sight of the San Francisco Bay. The culture of our school is highly collaborative and is based on the belief that we are a community through which students, teachers, staff, and parents develop trust, demonstrate cooperation, show respect, and acquire an understanding of the rights and needs of others; and that diversity, in its many human forms, brings quality and strength to our welcoming and inclusive school. Our mission "inspires students to seek deep, meaningful understanding; to develop strong academic skills; and to become creative and independent thinkers.” The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) featured Prospect Sierra as a “Model School of the Future”, (among only seven schools worldwide), in its publication A Guide to Becoming a School of the Future in 2011, and Prospect Sierra won the U.S. Dept of Education Green Ribbon School Award in 2013.
