Very friendly and accommodating staff. Loved the years my kids were there and still go in to volunteer after 5 years after my kids have moved up in grade levels! Would definitely recommend QCES to any parent looking for a great Pre-K through 4th grade school

I love Queen Creek Elementary! The leadership, faculty and staff are pro-active in accommodating the individual needs of the student. They do a good job of assessing students' comprehension level of the subject matter. The school is culturally diverse and QCE is considerate about the gender and cultural differences. My only concern has been the casual attitude related to children with food allergies and asthma. It is more a reflection of the Queen Creek Unified School District...they need to include a peanut free classroom and strictly adhere to it. They need to allow children to carry their inhalers with them at all times They need to keep epi-pens in the classroom and have the lunch recess monitors carry one too. We reside in the Desert Mountain Elementary boundaries but go to QCE because the principal is far more visible and active in the school. Several neighbors chose to pull their kids from DME and enroll them at QCE too.

Queen Creek Elementary school is an amazing little community within a great school district. Everyone from the principal, nurse, counselor, PTO, lunch ladies, and teachers truly care for my child. We are out of district and choose to drive 15 min each way just so our daughter can be in such a positive environment.

We have checked out the other schools in the area, and we were the most comfortable with QCE, and have not been disappointed. Everyone from the Teachers, Principal and Staff seem to really care about each of the students. Academically they are top notch-we are consistently impressed at the level of challenge our kids are given (they will never be bored at QCE.) I highly recommend QCE.

I love the fun atmosphere and the cohesive curriculum, My kids are learning amazing things and smiling at the same time. I know that my kids are getting a quality education and are very prepared for the future. So happy QCE is the place to be!

All four of our children have attended (or are currently attending) QCE. We feel very much at home at our school. We spent 3 years at JBE but after the boundaries changed, we were moved to QCE. What a blessing that change was. We have excellent teachers, all have gone above and beyond to help our students both academically and personally. We have experienced the passing of a close family member, all QCE teachers and Principal were very supportive and caring. The school has wonderful after school programs (ie: Run Club for $20/student, choir, LEGO club, Cup Stacking, etc). The PTO is excellent, fundraisers for school/classroom necessities as well as for famililes in need within our QCE community. I cannot say enough positive things about QCE. If you have a problem, Mrs. Copeland is right there, listening to your issues and finding a solution. If I lived out of district I would still bring my kids to QCE.

QCE is a great school. I was hesitant to send my children here, since GreatSchools.org only gives them a "7", but I'm so glad I gave the school a chance. (Side note- where does the 7 come from? This school itself has an "A" rating and the entire district was rated the #1 district in Maricopa county in 2013. Maybe Greatschools needs to update their records.) The principal, Mrs. Copeland, is very dedicated, the front staff is VERY friendly with both parents and the children, and our teachers have been great. I've had some minor discussions with some of the special resources staff- Speech Pathologist, School Psychologist and the Resource leader, and they've all been helpful for me and my child. The PTO is very active as well. Overall, my experience has shown me that this school cares for their children. Don't hesitate to send your child here; I'm glad I did!

This is by far the worse school my child ever attended. The principle is very rude and does not listen to parents concern. I had posted a bad rating previously, but somehow it has magically disappeared. Anyhow, if I were any parent moving to this area I would highly consider private school over this nightmare. My child was in gifted/honor roll when we moved there, when we left he was behind going to a LOWER rated school in another state. Thankfully the teachers at the current school actually took time and got him caught up. Now my child (6th grade) reads on a 12th grade reading level and has scored the highest test score for the entire county DBA. This school also has a bullying problem that is brushed off by the principle even with hard evidence. My suggestion to current parents and those who have no other option than to send their child here is to keep your mouth shut about any problems. If you complain they will disregard you and make it harder on your child. Yeah, it sounds bad to say that, but its true. Even the office staff are rude unless your one of the favorites.

We just moved from J.O. Combs District to Queen Creek District. We enrolled our two children into Queen Creek Elementary. We were very excited until some red flags arose. The first red flag was at Meet the teacher . The teacher was impersonal had just handed us paper work to fill out and sat at her desk. Our oldest child was having issues getting two hours of home work done every night (3rd Grade). He came home with complaints that if he asked for further instruction on how to complete his work she would say, I only give out instructions one time because you need to listen the first time. ( Which she did not deny)??? This was one of the several complaints he was mentioning not to mention being bullied in the class. (He was an honor student for two years at J.O. Combs and received the highest award in the

We moved into the Queen Creek district in 2005 during the building boom. Our son was in K. With the addition of a new principal whom is extremly enthusiatic and available. Our experience with QCE has been nothing but positive for our son. If you child has extra cirricular activities the school is completly supportive. Our son has been promoted to 3rd grade. He will be in a 3rd and 4th grade mixed educational class. there will probably not be more than 18 students in his class. If you like down home values in a small town then QCE will be a great addition. Your child will be identified and allowed to excell to higher levels of educational training. QCE is whole heartly supportive of higher education, but not mandatory. The school offers multiple class settings depending on the student/parent choice.

My son has just completed kindergarten at QCE, and I am extremely pleased with the education he received. The kindergarten staff has been very proactive at keeping up with the growth in our area by adding another teacher. This kept the class sizes manageable. Parent involvement is encouraged not only by the teachers, but also the new principal Mrs. Horton. Even though this area is turning more into a city everyday, QCE staff maintain small town values in regard to running their school.

This year is our first at QCE. I am very impressed with everything. The Principal, Erika Copeland, is compassionate, approachable and involved in all the daily routines. There are many after/before school activities and clubs for the students to be involved in. Tutoring and Homework Club are offered for those needing a little extra help. There is a highly recommended after school care on campus provided by The Boys and Girls Club. Our older child loves being a part of Ms. Noonan's class. She is a caring teacher who is giving our child the best 3rd grade education. We have nothing but fabulous things to say about our 1st grader's teacher, Mrs. Schiermyer too. She is energetic, kind and our child adores her. I think the staff and teachers are well qualified and seem to enjoy their careers. We could not be happier to be in part of QCE.

We are new the the Queen Creek School District. We came from a different (and awful) school district in this area. We were very unhappy with our choice to move to AZ until we moved into the Queen Creek Elementary boundaries. The new principal seems concerned about her students. The safety and education of students seems to be a top priority for her. We are proud of our small class sizes and friendly teachers. Queen Creek Elementary is an established school & they are doing a great job educating our children.

My son went to the preschool program at QCE and he really did very well. He learned letter recognition, number recognition and other basic skills. The school invited the parents all the time and encouaged them to visit anytime. They had a library, music, and PE program and they all seemed very good.
