Academy Rotations are what really set our school apart from other GATE Magnets. For one hour, four days each week students receive Art and STEM courses that are unique to Sequoia Academy. For example, our students may attend a rehearsal for our Disney Musical in Schools performance, learn about rocket aerodynamics, paint a tempera art project , practice piano keyboarding in our Music Lab or discover computer coding basics.
