Sequoia High School Reviews
It's a great place to work. In 19 years of teaching in public schools, I've never met a kinder, more motivated staff, or more polite students. I wonder if those two go together? I don't know. All I know is I wouldn't go back to either of the schools I've worked at before. I think I made a huge mistake allowing my son to go to our neighborhood public school two towns away. He is not getting the quality education in a friendly environment that he could have received at Sequoia. Live and learn. I am proud to call Sequoia home!
