I have three children at this school. Every student is proficient or advanced in state standardized testing at Aurora Quest K-8. Academics are superior. Diversity is good at every school in Aurora, including Quest. Teachers were helpful for parents. Clubs included Chess Club, First Lego League Robotics, DI, the 24 Game (and Club), the National Spelling, Geography, and History Bees, and the Junior National Honor Society. Girls sports has consistently achieved recognition via league championships. Facilities are still in great shape and the new student garden is innovative.

Schools tend to be relatively safe. The only thing that might need to change is how they handle bullying. Although there are schools that are part of the "No Place for Hate" campaign, they still don't take a lot of action to end bullying, especially cyber bullying. I had just recently watched a video where a teacher was bullying a student and calling that student rude names. When a student in the class had recorded this happening, unaware that it was against the law, and took it to authorities, they didn't support her and instead supported the teacher. The student was then suspended from school. This sends mix messages to students. We are told to speak up when we see someone being knocked down, but if we do speak up and are then punished for doing so, it will never encourage students to "do the right thing."
When I attended Aurora Quest K-8, there were many clubs you could get involved in some including NJHS and Art Club. Any student could also start a club if they had people willing to join and a teacher to help. I had participated in NJHS, Girl Scouts and also Destination Imagination all of which were held to a very high standard. The staff gets involved by being sponsors and supporting the students in the club. Not only is it fun for kids, but teachers as well.
