Habits of Mind

Habits of Mind

Sequoyah's Habits of Mind sets goals for each member of Sequoyah's community. Distilled from the expected school-wide learning results proposed by students, parents, administrators, trustees and teachers, it is posted throughout campus to remind everyone that they are individually and mutually responsible for the quality of their work, their relationships and their community.

The Habits of Mind defines best practices that deepen a shared understanding of Sequoyah's mission: "A Sequoyah education challenges the mind, nurtures the heart and celebrates human dignity."
