Sequoia is the best elementary school you will find! We have been at Sequoia for many years and are always amazed at how much this school has to offer and yet always striving to improve. The principal, Mr. Reno, is the best I've ever seen and the teachers and staff follow in his great leadership providing an outstanding environment. Any issues we have had over the years, we have been able to resolve with the specific teacher or Mr. Reno directly, and always to our satisfaction. I wish all schools could be as great as Sequoia, so all students could have the same benefits as Sequoia students! Also, I read previous reviews about parents being "clicky" or that the parent club directly, not letting outside people "in" and while I've seen this behavior by a few people it doesn't stop me from participating in volunteering. I volunteer to support my children and the school as a whole.
We just moved to Santa Rosa this summer so this is my kids first year at Sequoia. So far everything about this school has been excellent! Mary Ann in the office was so nice and helpful and the principal Mr. Reno is great with the kids. My kids love it and I couldn't be happier!
I love Sequoia as my daughters went to this school and did so well there. There are many good memories.
Sequoia is an excellent school. I can't say enough about it starting with the principal, and on to the teachers, day care workers, parent group, office manager, and everyone else. Thank you for all that you do!
Sequoia Elementary is an awesome school! The staff is amazing, Mr. Reno (Principal) has been an advocate for all the students students since he arrived. The teachers are very caring and have really made an impact on my kids. The parent club is full of people who want to make a positive difference in the school. Science and Technology are big at this school, my kids can't stay out of the Science Lab!
Have been at this school for seven years now. I love it, and the involvement of the teachers, principal and staff. Everyone always tries their hardest to make sure that every child has a positive experience. The Parents Club is top notch, and welcome to everyone with lots of opportunity for involvement and volunteering. Not snobbish or clique at all. Great people and great volunteers.
I think the parents club is very motivated and work diligently to ensure our teachers have everything they need and more to motivate and stimulate our students. They are a volunteer based non-profit organization and teh door is always open for any and all parent help, advice, and suggestions.
I love this school! Te parent involvement is outstanding and the teachers are all happy, motivated, and dedicated educators!
Love sequoia and the charter school. Great teachers. I have a difficult time with the overly obcessive parental involvment. Parents club is like a cult with no room for outside involvment. Same parents click together and hang around the campus too much.
Very high level of parent involvement.Academic program is very good.There is music,art and other extracurricular activities.
Great academics, caring environment, lots of parental involvement, high test scores, recently remodelled with new Library/Media.
Great parent involvement. Don't like the charter school because the principal is always busy with the troubled kids.
Excellent teachers, strong district, top music program competes with junior high performance, new, small charter junior high on campus for continuity with emphasis on technology. Strongly recommend
Plenty of parent involvement. Very good test scores. Teachers are motivated and responsible (most). I do not like the new principal or the addition of a charter school for 7th graders on the formerly K-6 campus. Not a very racially or financially diverse group due to high cost of living in area. Facilities are very old and currently being upgraded.
My son is a third grader at Sequoia School. My husband and I feel blessed to have such a wonderful school for our children. What and excellant staff who go above and beyond, the parent involvement is the best, activities, positive instrudtion..Im very exicted to be part of this school.
