Sequoia is a vibrant, diverse community of learners who embody our four core values of Responsibility, Respect, Honesty, and Compassion. It is the mission of Sequoia Elementary School to provide a powerful education to all students, enabling them to become effective, contributing citizens in our democratic society. Our vision is to ensure that all students have access to our core program within the context of a heterogeneous classroom.
Classes at Sequoia are balanced in terms of gender, ethnicity, and academic achievement. We present a curriculum that addresses different levels of linguistic and cultural orientations, complexity, pace, and material to all students, and a variety of enrichment programs. We are committed to fostering a positive school-wide climate, which supports this vision. Our parent group raises money to fund art, music, science, and garden programs for every student. Sequoia's Dad's Club, established more than 50 years ago, puts on fun events like the Variety Show, Fall BBQ, and Movie Nights. This school is beloved by the community and it shows in the care and attention each Sequoia student receives.
