    "About a third of the teachers are fantastic!!! They are the ones that keep this school afloat and they know it!!! However, most do not take an interest in our children and are more interested in pushing papers, the next luncheon (Lord knows you do NOT want to forget to take in something someone was counting on!) or teacher appreciation day. The "Administration" is abominable!! Mr. Burnam needs to go. The kids and staff do not respect him and he takes his vitriol out on parents. He and the staff have no "partnering" attitude toward parents. It's very clear that it will be "their way" unless you get an IEP or leverage somehow. I'm a solution finder. The Administration of this school is a problem finder. It's sad. Other schools that don't have the distinction this one has are SO MUCH NICER and BETTER to deal with! That's why my youngest will NOT be attending Sequoyah! We are suppose to be in this together."

    "There are a few incredible teachers, but most either lack the ability to teach or the drive to care. What makes the school bad however, isn't the teachers (or the students), It's the administration. They do not do anything remotely productive. They basically sit around and limit teachers who seek to do anything that may inconvenience them (aka order updated textbooks). Our principal is also incompetent and cares little for anything other than saving money and watching our pitiful football team. If you're stuck going to school near here, go to Creekview."

    "I was a student at Sequoyah from 2008-2010. I would like to begin by saying that this school is probably just like every other public school, all they care about is test scores, and you are not an individual by any means. You may get lucky and have a few teachers that actually care about their jobs and take an interest in your education. Unfortunately, the math team for the most part do not seem to care whether you are there or not, they give you the work, do not explain it, and you are left to scratch your head and try your best to pass your class. The teachers are rude, they do not have respect for the students, and do not feel they should have to. They are bigger and better than you and what they say goes. I was on my own completely. I was in the counselors office regularly for about 2 weeks. I was written up and given ISS, for not getting back to class after my APPOINTMENT with the counselor fast enough for my teachers liking. I was talking to them about alternatives because this school was poisoning my need for education. Needless to say, I didn't come back one day. School is there to ensure the success of the child, not to be what ensures their failure."

    "I just called the school in an attempt to get information on enrolling my son and spoke with the secretary in the Registrar's Office, WOW, talking about rude and unhelpful. As soon as I mentioned that we are considering moving into the school district from overseas her attitude changed completely! There's NO WAY I would ever consider putting my child into the Cherokee County School District now! Talking about discrimination...not a chance!"

    "Could use a new administrative staff. My child is a sophmore at SHS. I hope the higher ups consider making a change."
