Sequoyah is a community working together to develop each child academically, socially, and emotionally to reach their full potential in a caring and safe environment!
Our mission is to inspire and prepare every student to love learning, achieve ambitious goals and make positive contributions to our world.
A THRIVING DUAL-LANGUAGE PROGRAM
Sequoyah Elementary proudly offers a one-way Dual-Language Program to our native Spanish-speaking students, which helps them build fluency and comprehension through daily interactions in both English and Spanish. Students enrolled in this program learn to read first in Spanish. Then, they spend equal amounts of time studying Language Arts in English and in Spanish. Math is taught in English, and Science and Social Studies are taught in Spanish. In addition to having bilingual staff, we work with Communities in Schools to help Spanish-speaking families feel connected and engaged in our school. Parents also have access to translation equipment at our assemblies to ensure they don't miss those special opportunities to celebrate their students' successes.
