WHAT'S HAPPENING
HomeworkHelpSVMS School of Charater
Sierra Vista Middle School has been named a 2016  California School of Character by Character.org based in Washington, DC (www.character.org). 


The Schools of Character program recognition is presented to schools that demonstrate character development to drive a positive impact on academics, student behavior, and school climate.

You may wonder what character education is, here is a short and perhaps helpful definition: Character education is an educational movement that supports the social, emotional and ethical development of students. It is the proactive effort by schools, districts, communities and states to help students develop important core ethical (recognizing what’s right) and performance (doing what’s right) values such as caring, honesty, diligence, fairness, fortitude, responsibility, grit, creativity, critical thinking, and respect for self and others. Character education provides long-term solutions to moral, ethical, and academic issues that are of growing concern in our society and our schools. Through character education, students learn how to be their best selves and how to do their best work while making school a place where students and educators feel comfortable and able to work.
