Sequoyah High School’s campus is situated on the grounds of the Neighborhood Unitarian Universalist Church at 301 N. Orange Grove Boulevard.
Designed by Pasadena architect Doug Ewing, the classroom buildings complement the neighborhood’s craftsman homes, and the extensive surrounding gardens. Within a block of campus, a walking path leads down to the playing fields, tennis courts, and Rose Bowl Aquatic Center located at Brookside Park in the Arroyo Seco.
Although they are entirely separate institutions, Sequoyah and the Neighborhood Church share a unique history. Sequoyah’s elementary and junior high school campus is located on the former grounds of the Neighborhood Church at 535 S Pasadena Avenue. The missions of both the school and the church honor the principles of mutual respect, inclusion, and equity.
