Welcome to Grizzly Country

Our Mission

Golden Sierra aims to create an intellectual and democratic learning community where our students attain excellence in academic and career technical disciplines. We strive to offer a small, student-centered program where our students are supported by caring adults and academically challenged with rigorous, relevant instruction. We are driven by a commitment to current research-based practices that ensure our students have the best opportunities for success. Our goal is to ensure that every Golden Sierra graduate leaves our school prepared for higher education and high-demand, highly-skilled careers.

New California State Tests Begin in April

Golden Sierra's 7th, 8th, and 11th grade students will begin taking the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress in English Language Arts and Mathematics on Tuesday, April 13th.

The results of these tests will provide Golden Sierra teachers with data to better focus their instruction on preparing our students for college and career.

In addition, 11th grade test results will provide our juniors with an indicator of predicted readiness for college-level English and Mathematics. Students who score at Achievement Level 4 will be exempt from taking the CSU and California Community College placement tests and will move directly into college-level courses upon enrollment.

We encourage all of our students to do their absolute best on these exams.
