Sierra Madre Middle School

"The engagement of the students: in their surroundings, the new campus development, their classmates, their teachers, and their school work. This was clearly the result of supportive parents and staff."

"An excellent view into the daily lives of the students and the adults dedicated to providing a quality education. This contradicts some of the negative press and impressions out there, so it was very enlightening."

- Felicia Williams, Investor Relations Manager Edison International
