Sequoyah Elementary is a neighborhood school located in the heart of Russellville. It is comprised of approximately 585 students in pre-K through fourth grades. Students who attend Sequoyah live in the neighborhood, the greater Russellville area, as well as surrounding areas. We welcome and embrace diversity in our student population. Due to increased enrollment in recent years, two additions were added onto the building in 2015, which include a new fourth grade wing, state-of-the-art art room, a self-contained classroom, a PT/OT room, and two preschool classrooms. Although the facility is large, Sequoyah has maintained its neighborhood school feel.
Staff at Sequoyah are committed to ensuring every learner realizes his or her potential, and developing strong, positive relationships with students, their families, and the community. We possess an unwavering commitment to our students’ academic needs and successes, as well as fostering each child’s social and emotional development. Teachers work diligently to provide an enriched, rigorous curriculum employing hands-on and minds-on activities to fully engage our learners.
Sequoyah maintains a strong reputation for possessing high academic expectations and top test scores. As a result, we have received Reward and Recognition money from the Arkansas Department of Education three consecutive years. The money awarded has been spent on providing classrooms with materials, supplies, and technology which directly benefit our students.
Sequoyah is fortunate to have an active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and wonderful community involvement. PTO members provide many resources, time, and talent to the school. Fundraising efforts result in many experiences and materials, which our students and staff appreciate and enjoy. These funds have supplemented field trips, purchased playground equipment and iPads, provided scholarships for students, and have supplemented classrooms with additional materials. One of the great programs supported by the PTO is the Sequoyah PTO Student Tutor Program where volunteers provide one-on-one academic tutoring and are positive role models for our students. The PTO’s largest fundraiser of the year is the Spring Fling, which includes games for students, great food, a silent auction, and fun for the whole family!
