Our Vision

Sequoia School devotes itself to creating a brighter future and a rich learning experience for each and every student.  We promote and instill high standards, personalized goals, and dynamic partnerships with family and community.  We embrace the view that all students can succeed in a safe, positive, and academically stimulating environment.  The Sequoia School campus provides a student-centered educational program for students in grades 7-12, through support teams comprised of highly qualified teachers, support staff, and Educationally Related Intensive Counseling Services (ERICS).  Sequoia's unique integration of academic, behavioral, and therapeutic support creates an environment in which students experience achievement towards their educational goals and objectives.  Our students participate in active learning environments equipped with educational technology and curriculum aligned to the State Standards.  Our school-wide positive behavioral support program encourages students to modify their behaviors to become successful learners in the classroom.  Within this extraordinary learning environment, students receive exemplary instruction and experience the comfort and safety of positive social interactions.  Everyday at Sequoia, in addition to academics, students learn invaluable life lessons that strengthen them to cope with social and emotional struggles.  In addition, they receive Community Based Instruction and transition services to strengthen their post-secondary success toward a brighter future.
