    Overview

    Sierra School of San Diego has been around since 1972. Sierra School of San Diego provides an intensive, structured, individualized special education program aimed at strengthening each student’s academic and organizational skills, social and emotional abilities, sense of responsibility, job skills, and self-esteem. 

    Our goal is get our students to the point where they can successfully reenter “mainstream” schools and the community. All students are encouraged, nurtured, respected, and supported in achieving their full potential in an enriching, positive environment. We have great relationships with the districts and a great success rate of transitioning students back to the district. Our rotation model, behavior/level system works well with our population.
