My husband and I are thrilled that our daughter will be attending Sequoia Lehi. She is our first child to go to school, so we spent a great deal of time researching schools. This school offers effective and rigorous curriculum, and had smaller classes. Mrs. Young, the principal, went out of her way to make us feel at ease and welcome. We can't wait to meet the teacher and get the school year started. If you're looking for a school where your child won't be just another face in the crowd, this is a great option!

It is a great school with an intimate number of children which is nice. I like that they know who I am and my child. Everyone is very friendly and I like to get a report every night lacking in the usual "my teacher yelled today" It seems the teachers and Principle recognize that the children will not only remember what they learn but how they were taught, and that means a lot to me. I want my child's experience for 6 hours a day to be a good one and it generally is. I like that he is happy to go to school each day and still has a smile at the end of every day. I also appreciate the healthier options and variety for school lunch. I really feel like my child is a child in the eyes of the school, and not just something needing to be corralled till the end of the day, which happens to be our last school experience. I know he can tell the difference. The homework is a little hard, but I do like that he is being challenged, he definitely was not in his last school, it was play time all day. I like that if he is going to be away from me all day, he will actually be learning. Thank you Sequoia!

The teachers are great, by the first day they knew our child by name. I's a great environment and the teachers care for the students. There is no yelling or down talking to the students like we have seen at the much larger schools.

what I like about this school is that is not over crowded with students. and teachers have more time to dedicate attention to those students with difficulties.

My son is in kindergarten. I made a great choice by choosing this school because being in kindergarten he is already reading and writing and working on a lot of math. The teachers and staff are in constant contact with me and I am pleased to say that my son is doing very good in school, socially and academically.

My son goes to school here. His teacher, Mrs. Brame, is a great teacher. She sees enough in my son to push his abilities enough to let him know what his mind is capable of. I appreciate the efforts she puts into making sure my son is prepared to move into the next grade. He gets the attention he needs to succeed. Thank you, Mrs. Brame. Your are appreciated.

Our school is like a family. We all work together for the best for all the students. No one hesitates from pitching in to get the job done, no matter what that entails. If you would like your child to go to a smaller school, where they will really be known. This is the place!

I have been so happy since I brought my children to this school. Everyone is so nice, and they really care about my family. I have seen great improvements in what my kids can read and do. The small classes make it easy for each student to get lots of attention.

My daughter is a bit of a handful at times but has become so happy since coming here. The teachers and staff embrace the kids and care for them as well as challenge them to become their best. The staff and teachers need to know that the kids benefit so much from the structure and creativity both embraced at this school. I was very resistant at first because of the location but this school is a quiet peaceful little hidden treasure that focuses on the whole and well rounded child!

Sequoia Lehi is a friendly, small campus where the teachers seem to know all the kids. Even the children, regardless of grade level get along.

My school is willing to work with my child on the upper spectrum of students, he is given challenging work and can stay in the appropriate grade. We love Sequoia!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
