Sequoia Elementary is an excellent school. There are many things that set it apart from other schools, such as its focus on compassion and lifelong learning instead of just basic skills. The students learn to appreciate their uniqueness while also respecting the diversity in the world by working together with others both at Sequoia and around the globe through collaborative efforts between parents, staff members, administration--and most importantly the students! Sequoia Elementary champions the following:

  • A unique environment that builds character

  • Passionate and experienced faculty dedicated to lifelong learning

  • Center for educational excellence 

  • Enables students to be confident, respectful, independent learners

A unique aspect about Sequoia Elementary School is how they encourage children to be compassionate learners who see themselves as global citizens rather than simply being skilled individuals.

The school has been recognized nationally and internationally for excellence in education, particularly within the areas of teaching/learning practices, curriculum development, innovation with technology integration into learning environments including mobile devices, educational leadership programs that allow educators from various disciplines to work together on projects such as Girl Scouts-related badges or STEM activities; they also have initiatives which provide free tutoring sessions after hours when needed. This level of excellence provides students with these benefits:

  • Provides a safe, challenging, and empowering learning environment.

  • Dedicated faculty that are passionate about the work they do.

  • Deeply values diversity and inclusivity with every student’s background, culture, race/ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation taken into account.

  • Includes progressive programs in leadership education to engage teachers from various disciplines such as STEM.

As Sequoia students learn basic skills like reading fluently by second grade through rigorous instruction by skilled teachers using high-quality texts coupled with hands-on interactive tasks involving all five senses at every level throughout the building while simultaneously developing their social-emotional and physical skills, Sequoia Elementary School evolves into a close-knit community of caring students and teachers who are respectful listeners by the time they graduate. This helps the students because of the following:

  • Promotes literacy skills at a young age 

  • Students become respectful listeners and community members

  • Teachers provide rigorous instruction that is hands-on and meaningful

The Sequoia staff is dedicated to building relationships with each student in order to foster their natural curiosity and desire for lifelong learning while providing them with an education that will prepare them for success academically as well as socially.
