I love Sequoia. It's family oriented, fun, caring teachers, and overall the children are happy.
My son is currently attending Sequioa and it's average Academically speaking. I feel that my son could do so much more but the teachers can not offer better teaching or challenge him. Often time when I he comes home from school, I would ask him to start him homework and he would say that it's too easy for him and that he's bored with the class. He is obviously ahead of his class but I feel that he is just stuck there because he has no choice, but when in reality, there is another option, why not challenge him? although the parent involvement is definitely there, but seems like that's all they offer. I want my son to advance academically. It's just not there.
I really enjoy having my daughter at Sequoia. I love the parent participation. The only downside is that Sequoia offers an after school enrichment program but unfortunately all can't benefit from, due to capacity.
Sequoia school offers a positive and nuturing school climate. The students learn important academic, personal communication and problem solving skills. The school has shown steady growth in state standardize testing. The classroom programs include hands on science and social studies. Schoolwide programs teach children the skills needed to resolve conflicts and to communicate successfully with peers and adults. Our school wide buddy class program pairs older students mentoring younger students. It's a great school!
If we weren't fortunate to have Sequoia as our neighborhood school, I would seriously consider an interdistrict transfer to send my children there. We have been pleased with the educational and social development provided to our kids. The teachers strive for excellence and facilitate an open, caring environment for learning. A vibrant, diverse and growing 'community', I feel our children are safe, challenged to do their best, and are well prepared for the next step in their education. Active Dads Club and parent groups foster an awesome connection to the school. Multi Cultural Potluck, Fall Picnic, Lego Mindstorm Club, Variety Show,Science Camp, resident Art and Music Programs, Pancake Breakfast, Healthy Start Programs, Classroom volunteers etc. sponsored and/or supported by the families of Sequoia make this a school I'm proud to be part of.
I am a teacher who chose Sequoia for my daughter. The community is vibrant and diverse in language, culture, and background. The staff is amazing--creative, reflective, and always concerned first and foremost with the well-being and learning experience of each child. The climate of the school is pleasant, and kids are taught and encouraged to solve their problems both with learning and with each other. Sequoia reflects the best of our community.
We are very happy at Sequoia. We chose it for its excellent staff, parent involvment, and community feeling. The principal has a strong presence and provides good leadership. Our family has put a good deal of energy into building up our parent's clubs, understanding the weaknesses and drawing out the strengths of such a wonderfully diverse and generally good-natured community.
