About Us

Sierra School of Sonoma County is a Non-Public special education school that provides services to students with academic and behavioral challenges in Sonoma, Marin and Mendocino counties. We work in partnership with local school districts to educate students who are not experiencing success in the general education setting. Our structured program creates predictability for the students while allowing for the flexibility that is required to meet each of their unique learning needs. Our goal is to strengthen each of these students’ skills to the point they may successfully re-enter their mainstream environment. For some students that may mean a return to their public school of residence, while for others it may mean earning a high school diploma and obtaining gainful employment.
