This school has a very diverse population, yet the staff have high expectations for learning and behavior for every student. Each team of teachers works hard to ensure the success of the students. The leadership team does a good job of soliciting and reflecting feedback to set and reflect on goals. I've been at this school for several years, and I can certainly testify to the dedication and compassion of the teachers here.
Great principal and good dedicated teachers make it a great place to learn. And committed and dedicated PTA is another plus.
The principal is absolutely wonderful. She's very open to find the best solution to making sure your child loves school.
Good dedicated teachers makes it a great place for the students to learn.
We have a great staff, exceptional PTA, and outstanding students. With over 50% of students low income families in a fairly oppulent county, we have a great number of challenges. But we work together as a team to make Sequoyah a safe, challenging, fun, and interesting part of our community.
The great principal, the great teachers, parent volunteers and of course - the kids!
Sequoyah Elementary School is great school that reflects the diversity of the community and provides its student body with an excelent education.
Sequoyah has the best staff and students! They genuinely care about the students individually and collectively. Dr. Jasper-Principal, you're great too!
I love the dedicated staff and the great parent involvement with the PTA!
This was a wonderful elemntary school. My 13 year old son went from kindergarten thru 5th grade. Now my grand-daughter has been for kindergarten and now 1st grade. Ms. McGuire is AMAZING!!
I love Sequoyah Elementary School for doing what they do best, and that is making the children feel important and that they can achieve anything they put their minds to.
I think the school is awesome! It is a very warm atmosphere for students/parents/teachers ... I feel included in everything and also feel that the entire staff at every level cares deeply about my children. Every effort has been made to give my 'special' child the specific needs that he has. A+ for sure!
I was a teacher a sequoyah and stuck it out 1 year with Dr. J. The teachers are great and do the best with what they can. But, it is true Dr. Jasper has ruined the atmosphere of learning and teaching for the students and staff. Expect big changes in the staff every year if she remains at Sequoyah. A large turn over school reduces the success of each student. A school should be where parents feel welcome and she discourages parents to visit.
I have had two children at Sequoyah for six years now. While Dr. Graham was there it was an inviting, warm, stimulating atmosphere were the kids and teachers were happy to be there and excited for each day. Unfortunately, when Dr. Jasper took over things changed drastically. After the first year of her leadership, fourteen staff members left. Before this had been a school with little turnover. This creates an atmosphere of tension, frustration and stifled creativity which filters down to the children. We still have great teachers and kids and a strong parent support system but I am afraid that the school will continue on the decline. We have already lost many strong teachers and children to private schools.
