If you have read previous articles on this blog, you know that the majority of San Carlos is becoming increasingly “joined at the hip” with Sequoia High School. With the exception of a few certain extenuating circumstances, Carlmont High School is no longer an option for many residents of San Carlos. After years of rapid enrollment increases, that school is now bursting at the seams and is not accepting additional inter-district transfers. And since most of San Carlos falls into the Sequoia High School boundary, it was only a matter of time before the two groups were going to converge. Here are the additional posts on this subject:
The fact that San Carlos residents are sending their kids to Sequoia is not news. There have always been San Carlos families at this high school — but this year’s freshman class will likely represent the largest influx of San Carlos students in recent memory. And this trend is likely to continue for years to come as Carlmont copes with its enrollment challenges.
So now that Sequoia has been back in session for a few weeks, the question I keep getting asked is…How is it going so far? Well, based upon enthusiastic feedback from my own freshman student, as well as conversations I’ve had with other parents who are new to Sequoia, things seem to be going VERY well. The recurring comments I hear are that the faculty is smart and energetic, the curriculum is spot on to prepare the kids for college, and the kids feel very safe at this campus. Principal Morgan Marchbanks has really turned things around at this school.
But nobody cares about my opinion 😉 … What do YOU think of Sequoia? Do you have a student at Sequoia, especially a new freshman? If so, we’d love to hear your opinion on how things are going so far…either positive OR negative. Simply click the comment link below and make your thoughts known…
