• Dear Students, Parents, and Community Stakeholders,


    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  The faculty and staff are looking forward to providing you with a world-class education that prepares you for any endeavor you choose.  Our mission is your success, and we will work each and every day to make that a reality.  We look forward to celebrating your successes this school year and supporting you wherever and whenever we can.  


    Sierra High School's action plan consists of two key actions-providing effective instruction every day and building a strong school culture that supports students and staff.  These two key actions will guide our behaviors and decision-making in order to stay focused on what we hold dear and ensure we do not become side-tracked with programs that do not enhance our school.  Our behaviors will be guided by our Core Beliefs:

    1. Our main purpose is to improve student academic achievement

    2. Effective instruction makes the most difference in student academic achievement

    3. There is no excuse for poor quality instruction

    4. With our help, at-risk students will achieve at the same rate as non-at-risk students

    5. Staff members must have a commitment to children AND a commitment  to the pursuit of excellence


    Feel free to visit the school any time-your presence is welcome and we are eager to share Sierra High School's story with you.  You may contact me at zcraddock@hsd2.org, or 719 538 4853.  I look forward to working with you and our students,




    Zach Craddock

    Principal, Sierra High School
