    As the parents of one child who is now at Shawnee Middle School and another one who is a current student at Sequoyah we would like to share our views and opinions with you. First I would like to say 'thank you' to all of the wonderful teachers support staff members and the principal at Sequoyah. You have each been a blessing to our daughters and we feel proud to say that they are both straight A students who have glowing CRT test scores. Moreover they have learned the value of honesty integrity and responsibility through enriching lessons and interactive projects. Second I want to share that Sequoyah is doing some beautiful things with their curriculum that will only continue to enhance the students abilities for the future. They truly prepare our children for life. In closing I would like to personally thank Sequoyah for meeting the needs of my children.
