24 Parent Reviews for Sequoia Secondary School

The review below, that posted on August 31, 2011, is actually a review about Sequoia Academics and Arts school, not Sequoia Secondary School. Though no school is perfect I would not want to see another school take a negative review because their name is similar. Sequoia Secondary School is a NCA accredited ...  Read more

Pulled my daughter out of the school after only one day. Students ran the school, came into and out of classes as they pleased, cursed at teachers, the English teacher spoke with a heave accent and had a poor grasp of the language, a student in trouble visiting the principal was allowed to put his feet ...  Read more

Please review all AIA and Charter schools rules before allowing your child to play for the Athletic Director at this school.

Amazing lack of true education focus. HS junior classes where teachers allow homework to be turned in 3-5 weeks late for full credit. NO assignments/grades for entire qtr. No teacher in ASL class so students all get 100%. HS English class where students get 200 free 'attendance' points per semester. ...  Read more

Minimal academic focus. Lessons in areas of responsbility and accountability as a young adult are nt taught in this school. This will prove disastrous if a student wants to continue beyond HS. Students are not held accountable to turn in work in a timely manner and can do so 4-6 weeks after the original ...  Read more

Limited Academic Focus. Students not given much in the way of assignments and far fewer tests are given to provide a baseline for true academic achievement and mastery/memory of learning. Certification is not required for teachers. The kids seem to like their teachers and the teachers are more interested ...  Read more
