Quail Lakes Charter school is simply amazing!Sanger Unified has came a long way and now ranked as one of the best in the Valley.They only need 1 charter that is doing it's job.Yes they are doing something right and coping Clovis. Clovis is still the best.Whereas, Fresno Unified is poor performing and has many charters being shut down for performance or funding.If you are going to chose a charter school and can't get into Clovis or Central Unified, Quail lakes is it!Parents are awesome.Some may say they are clicky but that is because they know each other but once you get to know everyone it's great.You're there for your kids.The teachers are inspiring and fantastic.They do fun things all the times, field trips and hour long lunches.Sometimes 3 recesses and 1 hr.If we were not at Valley Oak in Clovis we'd still be there.The administration and office can be a stuck up but who cares.All schools have their issues but I rather have that than having people who are lazy and don't communicate with parents or kids.The kids are fantastic.Parents get as excited as the kids when their children succeed and they deserve all the recognition they get.Quail Lakes is simply the best in the Valley.
Quail Lakes is the best charter in the valley and a distinguished school. We get 2 recesses and sometimes an 3rd and we get hour lunches.Other charter schools have to be at school till 4 and barely get anything.They dont learn anything different either Falcons rock and we are the best school ever!
Quail Lakes is the best charter school around offering music, art, language, pe and we get 3 recesses and hour lunch. We have ipads too! My teacher is awesomeeeeee!!! We have lots of days off and every wednesday is a minimum day. Quail lake is awesome! Falcons rock!
It is true, without blond hair or light skin color you will not be acknowledged at this school. Discrimination is not subtle here. You know it's bad when the staff members don't even want to greet you with a "hi" or a "good morning" ever. There a few exceptional staff members but the rest are awful, snooty as they come. When it comes to school curriculum and teaching, it seems that kids are going home more confused than educated. Every year the standards change, the methods they've learned to do things the prior year are then told to be forgotten because they are doing it different in the new. There isn't enough one on one time with the teacher to make sure each student understands the concepts, and some teachers simply don't care. This is definitely our last year here. The school looks great on the surface but it is poorly run and staff are not professional enough to set aside their discriminatory behavior. Again, most, not all staff members are that way.
I am currently in the seventh grade at Quail Lake and I love it here I've been going here since I was in first grade and I only had good experiences, the teachers here are so wonderful I love the school it is a good school to go to, because they teach us a lot, and have a really good test scores. It is a really good experience if you go here because the kids here are so nice, and the teachers here really are passionate for teaching him of what they do. Her teachers live by the quote"Any child any day the matter what it takes", they really embrace that and they live by that pretty much every day. You should go to this school is the best school I've been to. I have also been to freedom elementary when I was in kindergarten and I had a really really bad experience, so when I got to the school my whole idea of school changed. Now I love school!!!!
This school is a school of white kids. You have to be blonde and white skinned to go here or you stand out. Their football is mediocre. My boys are leaving next year to attend Clovis Elementary where they can play football and be accepted.
Quail Lake is one of the best school, very friendly staff and teachers, the class size is small, they have high technology gadgets such as Ipad and laptop for students. My kids are doing well and maintained good grades.
I attended Quail Lake from the time that I was in 2nd grade to my graduation from 8th. I wasn't a perfect athelete. I wasn't a perfect student. I wasn't the cool kid. I wasn't normal. I suppose in retrospect that this means I had no place in Quail Lake. The students sure thought that. Students at Quail Lake are truly harsh. They will ridicule you if you have the slightest defect. The teachers will more often than not encourage this ridicule. The school seems to place no value on true education. They simply ensure that enough students learn that they can keep their precious test scores up. Quail Lake really isn't a very good school. The only way you will fit in is if you are blond, blue eyed, white, perfection in all ways. Oh, and you need to have helicopter parents.
I am an 8th grade student at Quail Lake Environmental Charter School. I have been at QL all my life, and -- sadly -- this is my last year at the school I have grown to love. I began in kindergarten as an ADHD student. I was loud and obnoxious. I was a very hards student, and, at another school, I would have been labeled as a disabled learner. I was not labeled that at QL. Just the opposite. I was given work that would hold my attention and get me to grasp the concepts that I was suppose to be learning. From kindergarten up, I have been improving. This school has given me the tools to learn at the advanced level and I would have it no other way. I go to this school for academics, not for friends. I am not saying I don't have friends either. If I was asked to rate my school those stars above this review would not even cut it. This school is a blessing for any child that has exceptional gifts and for any child that is ambitious but needs help reaching goals. I would recommend this school to someone who plans to send their child to a #1 college. I esteem my school and am proud to go there. To be a Falcon is to be a privilage.
