I love the staff and faculty there. They have given opportunities like no other schools. I was blessed with the opportunity to take and pass the Personal Trainer Certification exam. Everyone is nice and is so helpful! I loved four years I have spent there.

Sequoyah is an excellent school. Although, there could be a few minor changes but other then that I wouldn't want to be attending anywhere else. The thing I would most definitely change is the food because it could be better. My appreciation and love goes out to my school!
Sequoyah High School has taught me a lot throughout my high school experience, but mainly that we must prepare for tests. There is more to high school than tests and academics, and I wish they would emphasize those things also. We used to do more activities as a school that had to do with school spirit and helping each other. We used to be a family. They have made it so competitive with academics that they have forgotten what high school is about.
