I graduated from Sequoyah High School and I am currently enrolled at the University of Tennessee. Sequoyah offers great Dual Enrollment courses that have helped me during my college career. The faculty and staff are friendly, goal-oriented people that helped make my high school experience even more enjoyable. I was involved in sports and clubs, made great grades, and had wonderful friends that I am still close to today. This is an excellent school with positive, caring people!

I am currently attending my second year here and can honestly say that this school is not going to help me get anywhere within 100 miles of this place. There is really nothing offered here either as far as extra ciriculars unless you've already been doing it through madisonvile middleschool....If you had the misfortune of being relocated here there is nothing besides an average elementary school education that this school can provide. In geometry I am learning things that I have already learned in pre-algebra and everyday feel unchallenged and well retarded to be honest... The people here are rude ignorant and narrow minded with clearly no vision beyond the walls and confines of that disgusting little building. Do not attend this school.. I hopefully see myself perhaps getting some sort of job in the music industry, why? Because I am in band and that's the only scholarship I have a chance of achieving with my poor education that can hopefully get me the heck out of here..

If your child aspires to be manager of the local McDs when they grow up and top out, than its perfect. Otherwise expect to find your child was completely unprepared for even a 2 year college.

This School is where all 3 of my children graduated from. It is adequate but does not encourage kids to excel beyond the norm. All 3 of my children went off to college and have done or are doing well. I think Parent involvement is the key to a good education.

I currently attend Sequoyah High School, and I think it's a wonderful school. It may not be perfect or huge, but you can receive a lot of one on one time with teachers, which can be essential to your education. Teachers are very friendly and try hard to help you with anything you need, even things that aren't necessarily academic. They intend to improve your life, and so far they have done a great job with everyone I know. Sequoyah is also a safe and friendly school.

I really hate this school. Before I got into high school, I would enjoy waking up and getting out of bed. Until I started homeschooling, getting out of bed was a struggle for me. It would take me so long because I just didn't want to go. The school offered nothing I am interested in. I also didn't have friends. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't fit in here, and I've tried since last year (I am a sophomore) and have failed. Until I started homeschooling, I fought hard but fell weak. I was constantly being bullied and to be honest, most of the teachers are not at all good. Some were awesome, I have to admit. But I just cannot go anymore. It's not worth it. I was driven to a deep state of depression that I cannot get out of and I blame it on the year and one month I spent at this pathetic excuse of a learning facility.

Being a student of high academic standing here requires minimum effort, even in the more 'rigorous' courses. There is absolutely no motivation for AP courses except for the one or two offered. There are minimum extracurricular activities that are notable around here. I would agree from an earlier note about the lack of a National Honor Society. However, the faculty and staff are friendly and will do everything in their power to answer any questions.

I currently attend this school. I come here from a different state from a high school situated on the border of mexico with nearly 1500 students. Sequoyah High is built like an elementary school, they are not on block schedule, are not involved in common academic programs such as The National Honor Society, and consists of barely 1000 students. This school is very small population wise and space wise. The staff and students are quite friendly and easy to work with, so students get plenty of one on one time to express questions or concerns. The education level is alright, but i agree with other applicants below, the classes need to be harder. I am enrolled in dual credit classes and AP classes, but there are few people in those classes. The school is very small, but if you want to leave Sequoyah with something, get involved in activites and clubs.

I graduated. from here in the 2004, and i recieved a wonderful education here. The only thing i think they should consider is adding onto the school, was packed when I graduated.. The teachers are wonderful and very willing to help.

To be honest, it is a decent school considering the area. Other than that, go to Knox county, go some where other than the schools near here. I cam from Pensacola, FL, had a weighted GPA of 4.67, and lost it when I moved up here. There are no perks of taking the harder classes if you plan to graduate at the top of our class. The school is a joke. I could do the bare minimum and pass easily. with the exception of the A.P. Calculus class I took, everything else wasn't even worth my time.

I graduated from this school in 1997. I thought they gave me the best education that I have had. The teachers and other staff were really nice and answered any questions that I had. -Jennifer L. Duncan
