    Our kids have been at Quest for the last two years and we and they have had such a wonderful experience so far! Our kids LOVE going to school everyday because they are being challenged while having fun. The small classroom sizes allow the teachers to differentiate within the classroom. The resources at Quest allow the students to be exposed to much more than they would at a high rated public school. Students as young as three are learning Spanish, there is a virtual reality lab, and technology time. All students take art, music, and drama which provide a well rounded education. We also appreciate the emphasis on character education where students are encouraged and taught to have gratitude, generosity, self discipline, honesty, modesty, respect, patience, responsibility, courage, industry, compassion, and loyalty. We highly recommend!

    When we were searching for a new school to meet the needs of our bright twin boys, we felt Quest was the right fit. It allowed for small class sizes with a challenging, well-rounded curriculum, and offered a great individualized math program to accelerate one of our sons to middle school. What we didn’t expect was how much we would LOVE this school and ALL of the teachers/staff in such a short time! Every class is exciting and teaches them more than just the basics. Last year, my kids performed a monologue in Drama, played a solo piece on the piano in Music, created a presentation of an element from the periodic table in Science, learned so many conjugated verbs in Spanish, and pretended to be a Pilgrim with a journal documenting their new discoveries! The boys have built great friendships and we enjoy socializing with families outside of school too. They also have a wonderful character education program to ensure the students become good citizens of the world.
    Excellent school! I had been to three schools before Quest and had dealt with work that seemed boring and unchallenging. It wasn't until I started Quest that I realized how much I enjoyed learning. I was able to improve in subjects I had deemed "impossible" and make friends with other students at my level. Quest offered me a chance to challenge myself with work that was better and harder than the simple subjects in public school, along with great social opportunities in a beneficial environment. As an alumna, I look back at my experience fondly and hope those other families will enjoy Quest as I did.
