I love this school. Teacher involvement has been wonderful. They encourage parents to get involved and the teachers make themselves available to discuss your child's progress. As with most things in life, you have to put work in to get the results that you want. All of the tools are there, Power Schools, Email communication and outgoing staff to allow for your child to have a great experience. Parents, USE PowerSchool to check on your child weekly, email your teachers. Our teacher sends home behavior cards daily to let us know how our son is doing. It s up to me to check his grades and ask her what he needs. As soon as I showed initiative she gladly communicated how I could help my son. If you are a pro-active parent this school with allow your child to excel.

I think that the principle is considerate of the parents concerns. I think that the staff is incredible they are patient and knowledgeable. I am not happy with the communication between parents and teachers. My child has been in fights he has been misbehaving in class and I never received any calls or emails about it, when i see her everyday she acted like there was nothing wrong. The teacher that my son has says that she does not want to give consequences to my child's actions because she does not like to be the "MEAN GUY" and now that she has realized that he has gotten out of control she wants me to fix the problem that she created. Maybe I got a BAD teacher for our 1st year at this school but I think that the communications between the parents and teacher should be more prevalent in the way the school is run, so that there are optimum results in children's academics.

This is a great school!!! We moved here last year and my son made friends the kids are friendly. The parents seem to care and get involved. The teachers were outstanding!!! Although the school doesn't look as new as some of the other schools around here they have the best teachers and students!! Look at their test scores compared to other schools!!

I love this school. I have had two children complete their elementary education there. One of my favorite years was this last one in which my daughter was in Mrs. Densing s 2nd grade class. Mrs. Densing is highly personable, organized, and hard working. Also, her parent communication is great. I would highly recommend that you request to have your child spend the year in her class.

The school is great, and the teaching staff is awesome. I have volunteered in all of my son's classrooms over the years and have always had great experiences, but none compare to the phenomenal year that I spent as a parent volunteer in Mr. Carlson's class. Not only did my son grow by leaps and bounds, but he came home interested in everything. Mr. Carlson is highly organized and presents material with great enthusiasm and skill. There was not a moment where the students were not actively engaged in learning. I highly recommend both Quartz Hill Elementary School and the magical Mr. Carlson.

All 3 of my children went to Quartz Hill Elementary School and we loved it. Now I have 4 grandchildren attending Quartz Hill and are all doing very well. The Techers at Quartz Hill are excellent and caring.

The leadership and office staff is rude and un-inviting, They do not acknowledge anyone entering their office.

Disappointed with the leadership at Quartz Hill Elementary which trickles down to the teaching staff. My child has been left behind.

Both of my children have gone through QHES and have excelled on state tests. My daughter scored a perfect score on science which tells me the teachers are teach all of the subjects. She could not have done that if her teachers hadn't covered the material. The staff goes out of their way to help every child succeed. Ms. Dearinger is the best principal I have ever met. She knows the name of every student. The only draw back is the size of the school. The population is over 1,000 but partly because so many people request a transfer into QHES. It is that good!

Quartz Hill Elementary is a fantastic personal school, that cares about a childs education along with personal attention from the office, teacher and principal. We a very desening family about education and this school has far surpassed our expectations and desires, with a small town personal approch. It's amazing, all children should have this great experience in elementary school!

I am amazed at the dedication of the Principle Ms. Dearinger and Ms. Brandt, one of the kindergarten teachers. They are firm but caring and go above and beyond what they have to do. This is a great school.

My kids were much happier and did better at other schools. Our involvement as parents did not feel welcome.

I like this school, my children love it. I wish the school offered more extra curricular activities. I wish all of the teachers were held accountable for edline postings. Mr. C (5th) should teach all of the other teachers how to post in edline...and how to do it in a timely manner. The combo grades are not a good idea. the children only memorized information, they did not understand the principles behind the themes. but overall, I am satisfied with this school and its teachers.

My son just completed first grade there and I couldn't be happier! The teachers are great, the principal Ms. Dearinger is great and my son loves it there. Yes the homework packets are hard but if the parents are involved then all is fine. The parking stinks but that is not there fault.

I love QHE, my daughter going into the second grade loves it, my 5 year old starting her first year there, I know she will love it. I have all the confidence that she will love it to. I was planning on moving to the east side, but when I thought about schooling, I said heck no! The academic programs are an A+ along with the extra curricular activities they offer. Parents are great, I love being involved. The only negative I could ever say is the parking and the process in picking up my girls. That is the only think I would suggest changing.

My daughter transferred from Cottonwood Elementary to Quartz Hill this year and the difference in the quality of this school is phenomenal! The principal, Ms. Dearinger is absolutely fabulous! The office staff and nurses are superb. The teacher my daughter had this year, Mr. Carlson, was incredible. I am so happy with this school. I love the fact that PE is done in the morning, when the day is least hot. They seem to have a genuine concern for the well-being of each and every student. Ms. Dearinger recognizes my daughter and knows her by name. The keep parents informed through newsletters and flyers. It is a great school all the way around!

The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
