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.
The teachers at Sequoyah High School in Madisonville, TN are awesome. They are all very approachable, and do everything they can do for students to be successful in whatever they do. Each of them participate in after school and in school activities, and are there to support us all. I always feel comfortable to go up and talk to any of them if I am having a problem. I have been extremely blessed to go to a high school, like Sequoyah, all four years with immaculate teachers who do everything they can for students to be prepared for the future!
