Fall 2014, this review is to report happy healthy students with a positive attitude and a willingness to listen and learn. Having a great time on campus as a substitute teacher. I truly appreciate how this school runs smoothly, like clockwork! Definitely two thumbs up, and a recommendation to other subs. Come work on this campus, and go with the flow... You'll have a good day! Staff here is friendly and helpful, and they make you feel welcome. Keep up the good work Sequoia!

Our school has been around for awhile now and needs some work..We could use new computers for our kids, and the list goes on. We have the nicest staff ever and our PTA does a lot to raise money for our school, but the money we raise has to go for things like our crossing guard, school supplies ,assemblies, buses for field trips ect.. It would be nice to get a make over for some of our classes or even new sports equipment for the playground. Our teachers are wonderful also and I have seen them supply the kids even with some items they have bought out of there own pockets just because they care.. Please help we are in need..

I have had three daughters attend this school over the course of 10 years. During that time, there have been three different principals, yet the teachers, for the most part, have remained the same. The staff and my girls' teachers have been great, and truly care about the children. The current PTA is awesome and is really active, making the overall school experience seem like a family. My only complaint is the parking lot, pick up and drop off is a mess. Parents drive on the shoulder, double park, and some tell their kids to go ahead and cross while they are double parked. Safety should be taught at home as well as enforced at school, even when school is not in session.

My daughter is in the first grade at Sequoia, she loves her teacher and is showing so much improvement . I am so grateful for one of the other first grade teachers volunteering to work with kids that are a little behind with reading and writing. My daughter needs the extra help. This teacher stays after school three days per week to tutor a small group that signed up. It has helped my daughter so much. The kindergarten teacher that my daughter had last year at sequoia was new to the school. My daughter seemed very intimidated by her and apparently other parents complained about her to the principal. She is no longer teaching at sequoia. It seems that parents and students voices are heard. There are lots of activities throughout the year at the school, all are super affordable and lots of fun. It's great to have an awesome PTA to get it all together.

I really like Sequoia Elementary but my two little sisters had a bad experience with the same teacher. ( Miss Dhillon)She repeatedly didn't let one of my sisters go to the bathroom, knowing she had a blatter problem, my sister came home with peed pants almost every day. Now my youngest sister is in kindergarden and Miss Dhillon is rude to her and a week ago she hit her on the head because she was on the wrong page. I don't apreaciate that at all.

We have enjoyed being at Sequoia! All of my children's teachers have been great! And I appreciate that they also make time for art and PE! They have even had track offered recently. And I am so happy that a garden is in the process of being added. Also, the events held are well planned and executed. My only complaint is that I wish there were more involved parents and even more enrichment groups that the kids could participate in, such as chorus, drama, science, etc.

We have excellent teachers, super-involved parents, and I couldn't be happier with Sequoia. I originally thought we were i Golden Empire's area, but have never heard a single thing that has made me regret not being part of the Sequoia family. My daughter is going into 3rd grade next year, and doing fabulous! Go Sequoia!

Our daughter was only able to attend this school for one year (first grade with Miss Dhillon), and we wish we could have kept her there. Her teacher is fanstastic and I feel my daughter has been so blessed to be able to attend this school. She had reading issues that her teacher has worked with her (and us) on and now she is in the top of her class. She loves going to school and loves doing her homework with me every night. She is excelling far more than I ever imagined and I am so happy that she enjoys school so much. We love this school and I really wish we didn't have to move out of the area.

This school has by far exceeded my expectations. The Kindergarten teachers are great and every staff member I have encountered are friendly and very concerned about the children's well-being. I would recommend this school to anyone in the area.

I have to wonder about the comment made about Mr. Aydlett not giving that other parent more than a moment of his time. Did this parent try and introduce them self immediately after school one day, or during a 'back to school' night when Mr. Aydlett is busy? He's a very involved principal, and is gracious to all the parents as far as I've seen. He has always been pleasant whenever my husband and I have had occasion to speak with him. This is his 3rd year with Sequoia, and I can honestly say he gets better every year. I'd also like to comment on the parent who said you'd have to basicaly teach your child yourself, as the 3rd grade teacher her son had was more worried about discipline??? Hum, my child had a wonderful 3rd grade at Sequoia. She's had exceptional teachers every year..she's in 6th now.

First and second grade performance went well. Third grade performance was a bust. I have a child going into the 4th grade. Our third grade teacher was consumed more with disciplinary issues and did not focus well on academics. For this reason, I child suffered academically. As a parent, if you decide to go to this school, you will need to spend a lot of time with your child reviewing homework and answering questions on the various subjects because of the lack of the teachers academic performance.

This is definitely one of the best Elementary school out there. The teachers are well trained and very helpful to each and every student. The new principal they have is outstanding!

Academically the staff at Sequoia seems to be doing their job. I have met the new principal, Mr. Idlett, and he was quiet, solemn and barely spoke two words to me.

I had 6 children go through Sequoia and each one of them were unique in their own way. What I liked the most was that each teacher not only met their needs but were able to challenge them to excel without comparing them to their siblings. I was on the board and served as a volunteer for the 20 yrs that I was involved, thereby implementing many of the fine programs that are sponsored by the PTA. Sequoia has had great parent involvement as well as actively involved staff in the many school functions. They offer band, and other activities throughout the year. Of course you can't forget the all time favorite, their P.E. classes with funny and informative lessons as well as fitness.
