Prospect Sierra gives students the tools to build a better world, by integrating rigorous academics with a deep understanding of human emotions. Everyday our talented teachers help students connect academic experiences with ideals like ethics and empathy. The result is deeper intellectual engagement, greater self-knowledge, and compassionate relationships. Prospect Sierra students emerge with the courage to be great people, not just great students.
At Prospect Sierra we are leading the conversation about the link between intellectual and emotional learning. Prospect Sierra faculty regularly present at national conferences on best practices in education, equity and inclusion, emotional intelligence, and more.
Our curriculum emphasizes hands-on experiences, critical thinking, and creative collaboration. Our project-based curriculum combines academics and arts with social-emotional learning, service, innovative technology, and an emphasis on equity and inclusion. This integrated approach encourages students to make connections between their learning at school and their growing awareness with the outside world.
Prospect Sierra is an independent TK-8 school of 470 students. Our two spacious campuses are located in El Cerrito, with shuttle transportation to Berkeley and Oakland.
