We chose Sequoia after having visited most of the middle schools in our area. We actually decided to school choice into Sequoia and are extremely pleased. The staff is excellent and very responsive.

In my experience the front office staff and counselors are unwilling to make any extra effort to meet the needs of students. Check out the note in the counseling office which basically limits communication to handwritten notes. This is a typical rule at Sequoia. It serves to make the counseling job ...  Read more

As a parent, I give Sequoia a '5' star rating because I've seen and heard the efforts given by the staff (as a whole), in helping our son adjust to what is, his new school and new state of residency. From the counselor down, through the teachers, everyone was willing to give all they could helping him ...  Read more

I highly recommend this school for your child, as it has a great balance of supervision at break/lunch, great teachers, and good activities to get involved with, such as choir (which i highly recomment), sports, etc. Plus, there ...  Read more

I agree with the comments dated June 27, 2007. My son is also very bright but due to ADHD (and possibly Asperger's) has great difficulties with organization and rembering to write down, do, and turn in assignments.

I think my school is wonderful! I just love all my teachers! I am in all honors classes and it is difficult, but I have managed to pull 4 A+'s and 2 A's! This school really is great. I am also in ASB and help take care of my school, like the motto. I hope my review helped anyone who wants their child ...  Read more

I have two children that have attended Sequoia. I feel that the guided study program that Sequoia has in place is wonderful. At a stage in my children's lives when they were not interested in communicating with me about their homework, the Guided Study program did that for them. If they weren't keeping ...  Read more

My son, being very bright but rather short on responsibility, organization, and work-ethic, has been a challenge his sixth-grade year at Sequoia. Unfortunately, we haven't had a lot of help or communication from his teachers, as he'll sometimes do something wrong or not at all for months without anyone ...  Read more

Excellent Teacher Response. Excellent Councelors. It is just like a private school

Posted by a parent on 06/14/06

Quality of academic programs is mixed. Some are great, some are not. There seems to be some old teachers who have been in the profession for 20 years or more who have a sour attitude towards teens and education. Student teacher ratio is also very high in certain classes, upwards of 35 to 1

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
