Sequoyah School is an independent day school in Pasadena, California, where children thrive in a diverse community, appreciated for their individuality, and supported by a progressive approach to learning. A Sequoyah School education challenges the mind, nurtures the heart and celebrates human dignity.
The Sequoyah curriculum emphasizes deep understanding of concepts and mastery of skills. Children are introduced to reading, writing, and math through experiential learning, and are given time to explore their interests through research and play. Students learn to collaborate in small, mixed-age classes with teachers who pay close attention to each child’s developmental readiness to learn. Sequoyah students are expected to take an active role in their learning – even our youngest students set goals and periodically reflect on their process and progress.
