Through partnerships with local BOCES and districts, we serve students in both their home district buildings as well as district-operated locations.

An Individualized Approach

At the Sierra Schools across Colorado, our certified teachers and staff provide individualized academic and behavioral interventions for students who have not found success in the traditional classroom due to a variety of intensive special needs, behavioral issues, or coexisting disabilities. Our students come to us with a variety of special education classifications, including, but not limited to:

Emotional Disability

Other Disabilities

Service Models and Solutions

Sierra Schools and Classrooms serve students from schools districts and charter schools across the state both in our schools or in a separate district run facility. Regardless of location, the proprietary methodology we implement in all locations fulfills all student IEP requirements, creates customized academic and behavior modification plans, provides vocational and transitional services, and delivers related services.

Our Schools

Partnering with public and charter schools across the state to provide our high-caliber special education programs and fulfill individualized student placement need in our own standalone schools.

In-District Classrooms

Developed in partnership with a school, district or charter and delivered within their building or school, we serve students within their home districts, reducing the need for our-of-district placement.

Finding the Right Fit for Walter

Walter, a teenager with autism, was struggling in his previous school. He experienced difficulty staying on his best behavior and had trouble understanding appropriate professional and personal boundaries among teachers and friends. Additionally, Walter’s academic performance was suffering. Three years ago, Walter enrolled at the Sierra School at Main Street, and his progress has been remarkable.

His father, Scott, says that “up until a few years ago, his vocabulary was just a few words – basically yes or no – there was no real communication. But over the last couple years, his communication skills have come along. He’s gotten to the point where he can deal with people socially and there aren’t any problems. He’s maturing. It’s definitely improved quality of life, both for him and for us.”
