Sequoyah School Ratings & Reviews

Loved it. When I was a student at Sequoyah, if I did something horrific at home that required severe consequences, the punishment was that I couldn't go to school the next day. Fast forward to 2018, and the common ground about school is that the kids love it and ditching is never an option.

Sequoyah is a great school! We have been part of this community for three years. We were accepted at multiple private schools in Pasadena and our children have attended summer camps at several of them. I can safely say that I have a solid understanding of many of the best schools in this area and Sequoyah is doing something special and important beyond what the other schools deliver. We believe that education is a balance of priorities - academics, social responsibility, emotional development, creativity, and respect for the environment. Sequoyah strives to educate all of its students in all of these areas. This is a tall order and because clear-cut markers of success found in traditional programs, a gold start on a paper or an A on a test, are not present it can be harder for parents to understand if their child is progressing. But progress is abundantly clear in their junior high school students and graduates. Flat out these kids are incredibly happy and it shows. They are self-confident, engaged, life-long independent learners that know how to ask the right questions and dive deep into understanding. We feel lucky to be part of the Sequoyah community.

We’ve been parents at Sequoyah School for nine years and it’s been an overwhelmingly positive experience. The small student-teacher ratio allows for individualized attention and the school really does nurture its kids to become lifelong learners. Each year my son has formed close bonds with his teachers who have stepped in for extra support when we needed them.. The school emphasizes collaboration and active participation when it comes to learning. Thumbs up all the way from us.

Our son has been at Sequoyah for two years now, and we couldn't be happier. The community, the teachers, and faculty have all been first rate, and we couldn't imagine being anywhere else!

This school looks progressive and inclusive on the outside but, if you care to look deeper, the story is really quite often the opposite. My husband and I are parents of a Sequoyah student and have spoken over the years to many other parents at Sequoyah--most of us have become increasingly unhappy with the state of affairs at this school. Here is a bird's-eye view of some of the issues...Contrary to its down-to-earth public persona, Sequoyah is actually elitist in nature. There are exceptions made by its administrators in accommodating select students' needs while neglecting the needs of others. So much for an egalitarian mission. As far as teaching goes, one of the most common complaints amongst parents is that there is no standard metric for measuring student progress within and across school years. The teaching staff is allowed to evade accountability for shortcomings in their pedagogy, and they are also not held accountable for their reticence in keeping parents informed of the progress of their children in the classroom. Instances of implicit bias on the part of instructors toward some students are discounted out of hand. And for all of the talk of Sequoyah being a safe space for all children, bullying is a common occurrence.Sequoyah has good bones, but over the years it has become precious and defensive when offered constructive criticism by engaged parents. The result is parents like us considering taking our kid out of the school. We shall see--perhaps there is still room for dialogue and meaningful change at Sequoyah. In the meantime, however, you may wish to consider other private school options--unless you come here knowing full well that you may have to fight the good fight with a school that seems to be losing its way. Good luck.
