I have two kids at QG. Our experience has been positive across the board. Academics have been good. Social experience has been good - the school maintains a student based conflict management group aimed at empowering all kids. Both my kids (both 4th graders) just finished participating in Cross Country at school and had a great time. Our dealings with teachers, staff and administrators have been great. My wife and I feel very fortunate to be able to send our kids to a school like Quail Glen.

I have two children in Quail Glen. Both of them are doing extremely well and we have really been pleased with their teachers. The new principal is really involved in everything and I see him frequently around campus which I think is great. There is a ton of parent involvement and great spirit in the school. Quail Glen is awesome!

My daughter is in Kindergarten and she is loving it. Her teacher is fantastic and is teaching her so many new things each day. She is being inspired creatively as well as academically. The one thing I love is how the teacher describes kindergarten as 'magical' and to let them love their time and their school year. I am so greatful to have my daughter in such a wonderful school.

Two of my children attend this school and we have been very happy with everything there. They do a fantastic job educating our children there, plenty of parent involvement, excellent PTA and fundraisers to provide extras for the kids, great educational field trips are planned and they do a fantastic job recognizing and rewarding academic achievements and promoting good citizenship.

My daughter just finished her k-5 grades at Quail Glen. We had a very positive and rewarding educational environement while there. Overall, the teachers are excellent with very good experience. There are some teachers there that exceed over other teachers and some they could do without. The office staff have always been friendly with a nice greeting. It would be nice to see the school offer some extra-curriculum activities for the younger grades.

All they care about at tis school is themselves and how they look. My daughter has attended for three years starting with third now in fifth. The princepal is really rude. The office staff is rude as well and if your child is absent then you get a big lecture from the assistant princepal.

Q.Glen is strong academically, but that's all they care about is where they are ranked. The teachers are very cold and discipline is much too strict.

Great academically, no question. Teachers are great. I appreciate the level of discipline instilled overall. While academics is correctly priority #1, there's more to the well-rounded growth of the students than just academics. What about play and fun? It's part of being a kid. It's one key to the overall learning and social experience. Again, great for academics and great for discipline, but they're neglecting a key ingredient to true well-rounded growth, the freedom to run and play.

I am glad my two boy's are no longer attending Q.G. I did love all of their teacher's and thought that was the best thing about this school. The office personnel including the principal and vice-principal were horrible.

This school seems very tough and also strict. We have had some difficulties adjusting. The teachers really seem to care about their students but I have never felt welcomed by any of the people that work in the office. They are usually pretty rude. You start to feel like you are just a number and that all they care about is their scores. Overall the teachers are great but I think that some of them have forgotten that learning should be fun too.

Great school. Very Safe, Great academics. Principal & Asst. Principal are always visible. Teachers are wonderful.

Fantastic school with high morale and high academic standards. Great P.T.A. activities, such a barbecue, a back to school dance party and yearly carnival. They have a schoolwide discipline program that seems to be very effective. Children who are struggling can get extra help with reading and math tutoring, or go to intercession during vacation breaks. There is great unity and school spirit and many classes have parent volunteers every day. My daughter has music, computers, P.E. and library each once a week. The teachers do a great job and work well supporting each other. I would recommend this school to anyone.

I was raised in private school. I was very concerned about my son attending public school. Quail Glen has far exceeded my expectations. What a great school! The staff, parents and students have 'Patroit Pride'!

My oldest daughter has been at Quail Glen since Kindergarten. She is now in 4th grade and has loved each and every one of her teachers. Mr. Medd provides great leadership in a firm and fun manor. My youngest daughter now attends QG,and loves the nurturing from her teachers. I love this school for its parent participation, wonderful loving teachers and excellent principal. How many principals will challenge their students to meet their reading goal so they can shave his head at the school carnival and paint it red white and blue? (the school colors) Excellent, Excellent school.

Is there something in the water? Parent involvement at this school is like no other. Open house and back to school night are standing-room only events. Grandparents, aunts, uncles et al are in attendance. What normally are small school activities (ice cream social, school carnival) turn into full community events. Teachers are great. The Principal provides firm but kindly discipline. Test scores are through the roof. Wow . We ve two daughters in elementary school and are fortunate it s Quail Glen they attend. Ever seen a 3rd grader do algebra or a kindergartner do oral book reports? This place is amazing.

Our son attended Quail Glen for 4 of his 6 elementary schools years, and our daughter is currently enrolled. We have been thrilled with their teachers and their involvement in our children's growth -- academically, socially, emotionally, etc. The staff at Quail Glen truly partner with parents to ensure the highest quality of education and development of our children. Gordon Medd, the principal, is the key to Quail Glen's success -- a firm yet fun leader who stays involved on a personal level with the kids AND their parents; a man of integrity; a principal who selects quality staff members. We are thrilled to have had the privilege of our children attending Quail Glen, and highly recommend it to all.
