My son has attended Sequoyah for 2 years, the staff and administration at Sequoyah are amazing! Every staff member be it janitor to principal truly care about your child. I feel very blessed that my son is surrounded daily by people that support and encourage him. Sequoyah not only educates your child but also cares about who they are.

You will not find a better staff for caring for your child. This school goes out of it's way to make your child and you as a family feel at home. The classrooms are very interactive and they are always challenging students to do more and be part of the educational process.

my son attend this school for 3 years. he started when he was 4 and attened until he was 7. he was placed in the ale program almost the intire time. when i moved to another school, he was evaluated to see where he was. the evluation showed he had learned 3 sight words and knew not even half his phonics. he was basically ready for kindergarten. he had to be placed in sp.ed. i now pay for my child to go to a private school. my child is a perfectly healthy child, i feel the only reason he was put in sp.ed. was a direct result of this school.

A wonderful school that I have been a part of for over 30 years! The teachers are very good and work very hard. Yes, there is a "teach to the test problem", BUT it is the problem and the focus of our state dept. and in ALL schools in AR. The atmosphere is professional, structured and caring. From the time you walk into the building, you are greeted with smiling, caring faces. I have first hand witness learning in the classroom and creative learning strategies. Good behavoir is expected of the students, which makes learning much more fun for everyone and allows it to actually happen! Great school!

Having moved to this area 5 years ago from a large metropolitan area, I am very pleased with the environment and teaching that goes on at Sequoyah. Kids are inspired to learn and at the same time, taught conduct and respect for everyone in the building. Across the board the teachers are experienced and dedicated, and it's nice to live in a commuinty where 'teacher' is a respected profession, not a 'fallback position' when other educational/career choices don't work out. Although this is a relatively rural area in Arkansas, students moving through the Russellville School District garner educational honors, awards, and experiences that I'd guess rival those of any area. I beleive my children are getting a private school education at a public school price.

After my son's 1st grade year @ Sequoyah we decided to pull him from this 'fine establishment'. After spending my elementary years there I wanted to give my kids the same experience I had. Sequoyah's motto is 'A happy place to learn'. Are you kidding me? Thankfully my child was not a 'problem child', and I never parked in the 'wrong' spot. Otherwise I suppose we would've felt the wrath, but I saw it plenty.

I like our school. The teachers are firm and expect the children to be well-behaved. They want what is best for the kids. They don't allow bullying and they teach kindness to others. Parents are helpful and busy at the school also. I believe my children are safe there. I like the fact that the teachers make them accountable for learning every day.

My child has attended Sequoyah since kindergarten. What exactly are they teaching our children there? I do not understand this school at all. How about the fall festival that is coming up? How much money does all this cost?

Sequoyah Elementary is an excellent school. My children were taught well and achieved in all academic areas. They both performed well on the state benchmark exam and went to fifth grade confident and well-prepared. The parent involvement is phenomenal. The extra curricular activities are fun and the programs enjoyable. I especially like the emphasis on math and language arts. Children are joining reading clubs that staff members offer during their lunch/recess break times. The children are allowed to present their favorite books in several creative ways including a character parade, TV broadcasts, etc. Many community volunteers spend time at the school tutoring students, fixing backpacks for needy children, reading aloud to classes, and making presentations about their fields of specialty. Sequoyah offers many opportunities for volunteers to enrich their students' learning. The teachers are nurturing and kind. I see well-behaved students and good manners being a part of the curriculum.

Sequoyah has the ability to be a great school.However to much time is spent on discpline, fear and threat of discpline. How many schools do you know that shut the lights off at lunch and yell 'shut up'. This is not respectful positive child friendly correction. The teachers are teaching to the test and are in fear failing( most of them). To offer selective creative methods, would be unheard of and not allowed. Young adults need to learn respect, not fear of discpline. Sequoyah needs to look @ the miltary stlye of order and discpline they currently act under. Respect,mutual understanding and acceptance of diversity. Learning for fun and mind expansion, not hammering to pass a test. Yes, teach this material but not excessive drilling. Teach positive fun learning @ k-4.
