Sequoia Union High School District Reviews

While my school and the district are not perfect, I have really enjoyed being a part of my school over the past four years and do not at all regret choosing Woodside. Most of the teachers were great, with the exception of a few whose styles or mannerisms I simply did not agree with, however the rest of the staff are very friendly and supportive! They really appreciate feedback from students especially in recent years when they have been experimenting with a possible new schedule as well as with extracurriculars. Overall I feel that Woodside and the district as a whole, while it could benefit from some new programs and regimes, tries its hardest to be a place where students feel comfortable and strive to learn and improve themselves.

I'm only a freshman right now, but Sequoia has been such a good experience for me. Everyone at Sequoia is so friendly and they have such good vibes and positivity! The teachers there are amazing. They really care for me and my fellow classmates and they're always checking in on us. Overall, Sequoia is a really, really good school.
What I liked most about Sequoia Union High School District, specifically Carlmont High School, was those great teachers who were actually passionate about their classroom and students. They are one in a dozen and fortunately I had been lucky enough to be part of their classrooms. Some of the teachers I have had truly cared, not only academically but also about the students well-being. Our science and music programs were also spectacular. Some things I would like to see change is the school culture and how the administration should handle situations that happen at school better to ensure the safety of the students.t
