Sequoyah is a community of learners.
What does that mean?
It means we strive to understand our similarities and differences, treat each other with respect, and uphold our school's Habits of Mind. We believe that learning goes on at all times and in all places, as an exchange among students, teachers, parents and the surrounding community.
We honor and reflect the vibrant ethnic diversity of Southern California, knowing that a school which establishes a rewarding context for engagement, exchange and inquiry fosters individual expression and collaborative responses to challenge.
Yes, our community is ever-changing. Junior high students graduate and new families enjoy a cup of coffee with each other on that first day every September. But the school continues to be a community in which we encourage you to take a step toward a new friend, ask a question, try an alternate path and show your work. Here, it is better to make a mistake rather than not to have pushed yourself at all.
