Open Quote If no one truthfully says it, then I will. Sequoyah High School is not a good school, maybe everyone's experience is different, but I KNOW FOR A FACT the things I had to deal with were bullying, bad teachers ( horrible), not a healthy environment, drugs, and there was just a lot of bad things going on. The school could honestly care less about anything, the teachers would hardly teach but through worksheets and packets at you and tests and quizzes the next day. The teachers I GOT when they would stand at the board and point their finger and say write this down, and that was the lesson of the day. I did not like the fact that after a long hard day of school I would have to come home to like 8 hrs of homework which I had NO time for and my learning needs were different, so I struggled a lot more and did anyone help, nope. I tried to get my schedule changed to leave some issues I was having in lunch period, and all I got was a sorry it sucks you can't change your schedule. So this school isn't a good school. If you want to send your kid to a school FULL OF drugs, bullying, harassment, bad teachers, lousy learning environment, AND A BAD ENVIRONMENT OVERALL go ahead. Tell me how it goes. I mean my honest opinion the school doesn't care about anything that goes on or happen unless your an athlete or like a straight A student. Close Quote

Open Quote Sequoyah High School has an exceptional pocket of AP students and teachers, however, if your student does not fall into the advanced placement category, the quality of teachers and students goes down quite a bit. The principal is getting a bit old and is only concerned with test scores and profit. With class sizes already at their max, I worry about the 4+ new neighborhoods going in Sequoyah's district. Even with the old middle school building, I foresee the school having lots of issues with population. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
