Sequoia is a vibrant, diverse community of learners who strive to embody our four core values of Responsibility, Respect, Honesty, and Compassion. Our parent group raises money to fund art, music, science, and garden programs for every student. Sequoia's Dad's Club, established more than 50 years ago, puts on fun events like the Variety Show, Fall BBQ, and Movie Nights. This school is beloved by the community and it shows in the care and attention each Sequoia student receives. Our staff of largely veteran teachers constantly collaborates to create rich learning experiences for children that rival those of the best schools, public or private. We are proud of our campus, beautified by a student-created tile mural over 300 feet long, productive classroom vegetable gardens, and numerous brightly painted murals. Sequoia is a happy, safe and colorful campus full of curious, interested children who are both challenged to be the best they can be and supported in their individual learning needs. One thing that makes Sequoia so special is our Autism Spectrum Full Inclusion program that places children on the spectrum in classrooms with support. All children receive orientation on individual learning differences through this program and become more compassionate individuals as a result. Our well established school climate of acceptance, kindness and sensitivity benefits all children. We welcome visitors to our monthly Sequoia Sings assemblies, held on the first Wednesday of each month, when we come together as a school to hear news and raise our voices in songs related to our four core values. You will hear the African drums as you approach; they are the heartbeat of Sequoia.
