My school is amazing, the teachers are so helpful, its turned my brother and I around. Everyone is so willing to help and explain things and they make you earn it and love learning again.

I earned 17 credits in one year, graduated on time, got involved in leadership and be the change. This school is a miracle. The best teachers and staff. Because of them, I might study to become a teacher. They inspired me to the fullest. Each one of these teachers and staff member deserve the very best, they are truly teachers, and are passionate about their jobs. I miss high school, and wish I came here when I was a freshman. If i ever got rich and famous, i'd give all of these teachers a vacation! :) i love them all dearly. - Katrina Nowosielski

Hi I am a student at sequoia high school and I personally would tell you it is the best school around. A great environment and great students and staff. I love everything about sequoia. Thank you for making it all possible that students are able to have a great education there. Everyone that goes to sequoia and has passed intake would not tell you aout how bad sequoia is, you would here all te positives about the school. I would tell you with great honor as ASB president at sequoia that it is a great school for students that have a hard time in traditional high schools.

Excellent! no doubt the best school i have ever gone too! great teachers who make sure your child gets all the help they need. There's no music, sports, or extracurricular activitys. But the art program is astonishing!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used End-of-Course (EOC) examinations to assess students in Algebra I, Geometry, Integrated Math I, Integrated Math II, and Biology. The EOC tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
