An emphasis on community, equity, and achievement are the guiding principles that give us our unique, close-knit and cooperative spirit. Our diverse population is made up of approximately 840 students, one third of whom speak English as a second language.
Flags from over 70 countries adorn the school representing the home land of many Pierce students. A wide socioeconomic range is represented among the 450 families (840 students) at Pierce. Residential housing has exploded in the school community over the last five years contributing to a swell in enrollment.
