Two of my kids have gone through Sevier an now my youngest daughter is in the 8th grade at Sevier. I can't give enough praise to all the wonderful teachers! They offer tutoring every day! Great school!
—Submitted by a parent

I believe this school could function much better if there were administration more concerned about fairness and equality for all children attending rather than just a few. Big political distinctions here. Perhaps the newly appointed principal will help improve this situation.

I enjoyed my 3 years at Sevier, except for a certain teacher who was always very rude and mean to me for no reason. Every teacher I have had before and after her have liked me.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted July 27, 2005

Sevier was a great school. For the three years I attended there, I loved it. All but one of my teachers were very helpful and took a large interest in helping all of their students. It was a safe environment which made it easier to learn.
