    "Based purely on my own experience, I would believe Sequoia provided with the best years I could possibly receive out of my high school career. There many opportunities to be involved with extra-curricular activities to look forward to that had great support not only by the students, but also by the faculty. Major events, especially sporting ones, were always a great joy given the large turnout of attendance and enjoyment by the students families, and even faculty on occasion. The faculty would even engage with the students on a personal, inviting level as to make the students feel comfortable with them and make them, including myself, feel as though we could truly turn to them. All of which was done while maintaining a professional manner and therefore sustaining our respect towards them while being able to develop a deeper relationship between the students and faculty that I feel not just any school could create which only helped the school as a whole flourish in support for one another."

    "The kids who are involved, typically IB kids, tend to be the ones with involved parents, so it's a very self-selecting and not very diverse group of parents. However, the PTSA does generally stand up for the students."

    "The teachers overall, as far as my own experience, demonstrated great care towards the students both in terms of their education as well as their well-being. They were certain teachers that were unable to fully teach their subjects in the best way for the students to fully grasp the concepts. However much of this was more due to the resources available, or rather lack there of, in order for the teachers to properly teach all students. As a whole, the teaching skills and abilities of the teachers were well suited for each subject in which the teachers were responsible for and for the students to be able to reach their full potential. And for those that could not reach such potential using only the resources from within the classroom, could always look towards the many teachers at Sequoia for assistance outside of class."
