    I am a parent and my kids are in 1st grade and 4th. This school has bent over backwards for my daughter. She has selective mutism. She wouldn't talk to anyone not her teachers or even her classmates and she wouldn't participate in anything. She has been going here since k-and is my 4th grader she has made a complete turn around. They were very patient with her and they have been doing everything to make her feel comfortable. My daughter has all A's and B's and I give this school a 5 rating!

    I am currently a student at sequoyah Jr. High and have been attending sequoyah since pre-k. I find the school to be an excellent place to have partially grown up. The teachers at Sequoyah great especially my geometry teacher Chris Hansen (she is a wonderful person). The sports program is outstanding we are very competitive and play our hardest in every sport. The coaches are great they are strict but fair. The principle in the Jr. High is really great I have known him for almost forever and you will never find a nicer person. Well all around Sequoyah school is a great but small school in my opinion.Go Eagles!

    I think Sequoyah is a very great school. I have been going there since Kindergarden to 8th grade. I have never had any complaints about it. They have great athletic teams especially the track team. We went and did our best and got 2nd overall. The teachers are great and so are the students. I wish I didn't have to leave because they have such a great educational programs.

    I am a student of the Sepuoyah school systems and I have been since I was in Kindergarten. Throughout the past thirteen years I have got to see the changes taking place. It truly is amazing. The Elementary take part in a program calles 'Great Expectations ' because they really do have great expectations for those children and help them reach thier ful potintial. Mrs. Trent the principal is a fair just lady and she respects and values all of her teachers. It is great to watch all of those children grow and learn respect and manners. Sequoyah is a wonderful school system I have loved my past years in it and I will be kindof sad to leave it. Seqyouah is also a very safe school they are really careful when it comes to the safety of those children.

    My son was placed in this schoool. He only lives a mile a away. After a week they decided he need to go tofoyil stating he was in the wrong district. They gave no good rerason except to say they don't except transfers. My son is 8 years old and in the 3rd grade. He reads on the 5th grade level. Mrs tieges was very nice but insisted he couldn't go to her school. I do believe they were not taking my son's abilities and the fact he had been at school for a week already into consideration. Please take this into consideration.
