About Us!

Sequoia Middle School has had a unique journey as an educational institution.  It first opened in 1939 under the name “Union Avenue School”.  It kept that name until 1949, when it was renamed Golden State School.  It kept this name for many years, however the school was eventually closed in 1980.  At that time, it was purchased by the County Superintendent of Schools and continued under the name of “The Blair Learning Center”.  BCSD again purchased back the campus in 1997 and renamed the school Sequoia Middle School. Sequoia Middle School is proud to serve the students and families that are part of their Community. They strive to offer the best education possible to every student that comes through the doors.
