First of all, the Fruitvale School District demands excellence from their staff. As a parent of two former students, a PTSA member and parent volunteer, I can give you an excellent review on Quailwood Elementary School, the Principal, Mr. Steve Duke, Teachers, and Staff. The school is above and beyond outstanding. My children attended K-6. Both of my children had wonderful learning experiences. The teachers were more than happy to work one on one, sent home weekly progress reports, gave 100+ effort to make their education interesting, fun, consistent,and above and beyond what you would expect, etc. My children still recall all of the wonderful experiences of education, the community involvement, special guest speakers, etc. and keep in touch with their Quailwood teachers. As a parent with many friends in many other schools, I can say that my friends were always envious of our wonderful school and experiences. Quailwood encourages on campus visitors. If you have any doubts about sending your child to Quailwood, I promise your doubts will disappear after your visit. Quailwood has been awarded a 'Blue Ribbon Award' and is a California Distinguished School Award Winner, many times over. This is not an easy task to achieve. It takes much extreme dedication from the Administration, Teaching Staff, Staff, parents and students. You will be truly happy with your childs experience.
