    im a student at Sequoyah. i hated red bank. i dreaded getting up in the mornings now i jump out of bed and cant wait to get to school. for kids like me that learn with their hands instead of being in a regular class room Sequoyah is or will be your home away from home. im taking auto mechanics with mr newby and i have grown very close to him i look at him like a father and being a female in the mechanics felid is hard but mr newby is always incouraging and have hope and believes n me and i have learned alot and now im a better mechanic than most guys in my class. i wish the county wouldnt look down on us. or other schools or parents at that.

    I went to Sequoyah last year and it's an awesome school. The classes offered teach you trades that will set you up for life after high school no matter if you choose to go to college or go to work. I majored in Auto Mechanics and Motorsports. Nothing like working on race cars all day.

    I am a former student of Sequoyah High School and it has changed my life dramatically. Before attending sequoyah I was failing classes and felt like there was no point in trying. I am now a junior and for the 3rd year nowmaking straight A's. January I take my state boards to get certified as a nursing assistant. This school is amazing along with the teachers and staff.

    I love being at Sequoyah. The teachers actually spend one on one time with you and it's like my second home! I've never experienced anything like it the help teachers give the comfortable atmosphere in a school and just how much I've learned can't compare to the other schools I've been to where I learned nothing and failed many classes. This school is the best.

    This is an EXCELLENT school with EXCELLENT leadership administration and programs. Sequoyah High School offers educational opportunities which prepare the student for immediate entry to college and the workplace simultainiously. Every school should model itself after this one.

    Don't close this school we love the way the teachers teach and how they will take the time to help your child. When the schools are way to full there's nothing but trouble they hold down trouble at this school and my son likes this school for this reason also he. Don't take this school away.

    Shs is a great shool for now until the put sdh in with it. I beleive it want be the same they will have to much drama going on then when you have alot of kids in one school.I think that's why these kids are learning alot because the teachers can learn them alot better without alot of kids.As a parent I think this is gonna be a bad ideal.

    What a wonderful school this is. The teachers are great. They show my child that they really care about him as a person not a number. They are positive not negative about their students learning. My child has excelled since he has been at SHS.Thank you staff!!!!

    I am a former student of Sequoyah Vocational School and I also organized a program for a fallen soldier that I went to school with and my niece attends there. Sequoyah is a wonderful place. The teachers are full of compassion for everyone who passes through their halls. Mr Holmes is a wonderful replacement for the retired Paul Smith by keeping the tradition of knowing everyone buy name to establish morale within the student body! They were wonderful to me when I was a student and wonderfully accepted a program established to honor one of out own who was killed in the war on terror in Iraq. Thank you Sequoyah. Old and new you are always my number one choice for a great education and wonderful lasting memories. I only hope that my daughter will make the decision to be attend as well. Sequoyah is the place to learn and grow!

    I am a senior at Sequoyah High School. I would defiantly recommend this school to everyone. The teachers are great and will help you with any problems you are having. You get a head start learning about what job you are interested in. This school prepares you for the many challanges you will be faced with after high school.

    I am a 2004 grauduate from Sequoyah and I would recommend highly this school to anyone. The teachers here care and they will make sure you pass. It's a blessing that this school is here. Although I live almost an hour away I have no problem making the trip out here.

    My daughter attends SVS she is happier attending this school. I think that the administration and teachers are excellent. It's a great school to send your child to.
