    "We chose Sequoia after having visited most of the middle schools in our area. We actually decided to school choice into Sequoia and are extremely pleased. The staff is excellent and very responsive. The teaching is very effective and the block system works well for our child. The music program is top notch as well as the sports options. All in all we are very happy."

    "In my experience the front office staff and counselors are unwilling to make any extra effort to meet the needs of students. Check out the note in the counseling office which basically limits communication to handwritten notes. This is a typical rule at Sequoia. It serves to make the counseling job easier rather than to foster communication with students. Students are widgets to be pushed to perform. There are no great inspiring adult role models here. Student behavior reflects this void. Certainly there are a handful of excellent teachers, but the best are reserved for the honors program. Then there are the teachers who pile on the homework as if to make up for their own inadequacies. Honors students dominate the "student" government which is chosen by the administration. If your student's enthusiasm for learning takes a nosedive while attending Sequoia it is not just a phase of adolescence, it is the pernicious school climate."

    "As a parent, I give Sequoia a '5' star rating because I've seen and heard the efforts given by the staff (as a whole), in helping our son adjust to what is, his new school and new state of residency. From the counselor down, through the teachers, everyone was willing to give all they could helping him in every way possible to bring him up to caliber and this, one does not see very often. They need be commended on their efforts! Sincerely, M. Marjorie Sortomme"

    "i went to this school for 7th and 8th grade, and it was a great school. I highly recommend this school for your child, as it has a great balance of supervision at break/lunch, great teachers, and good activities to get involved with, such as choir (which i highly recomment), sports, etc. Plus, there is guided study if you are having a hard time after school for an hour a few days a week. :)"

    "I agree with the comments dated June 27, 2007. My son is also very bright but due to ADHD (and possibly Asperger's) has great difficulties with organization and rembering to write down, do, and turn in assignments. He scores in the 99th percentile on standardized tests but is getting C's and D's. I have had several SST meetings to no avail. The school has no interest in helping, and says he is doing fine as he is 'passing'. He is very stressed out and no longer enjoys school or even wants to try. His self-esteem is going downhill fast and he is developing behavior issues. None of the teachers are willing to help other than to berate him. I will be pulling him out of this school as soon as I can. I have since heard from a number of parents and psychologists that Sequoia is the worst middle school in the district if you have a child that doesn't fit into their mold for learning styles. I understand that Redwood is the best."
