This schools district we moved in to in 2008 when my oldest son went to quil run elementary First of it is mixed community mostly people from India and Korea These kids have tutors and go to churches that offer free tutoring to them My child was new in school it takes time to get used it to any child he is energetic and full of life Teachers did not like that They used kids that are quite and east to be controlled I had meetings with school personnel They said that my child has to be seen by doctor and proscribe calm down prescription and it is autism ! And he has to go to special aid class which was something new and outrages to me because I know my son and he is absolutly normal . I didn't like that and transfer him to coyoti creek elementary where of course since it's same district they knew about my son To make story short it is rotten spoiled and ignorance population . You have to meet there standards otherwise you out or you are will diagnosed by district with disorder they can come up with So make sure before you move Danville /dan ramon you are prepared and your child has A's ,B's and is looks in one direction without making a sound ! Good luck !

I have loved Quail Run since my daughter's first day of Kindergarten. She is now in 5th grade and will be graduating in a couple of months and I am very proud of my daughter's development socially and scholastically. The campus is safe and there are always adults supervising during their stated hours. The system is well organized for pickups and drop-offs that are consistently enforced. Staff does an amazing job of communicating with parents. Parents remain very involved in activities. PTA has very high participation and provides fun activities and enriched learning activities throughout the year. Plenty of opportunities to become part of a community, albeit not very diverse... but I have always found the majority to be fairly welcoming. Amazing leadership by previous principal. New principal's first year is proving to be a good candidate

My daughter used to go here, and she loved it! It was sad that we had to switch schools, but she seems happier with the one she currently has. Twin Creeks Elementary has O.K communication, but Quail Run helps me better in finding out what events are taking place. My daughter has been there for K-1st grade, and now she is in 4th grade. She misses Quail Run, but, like I said, is happy to be with her new school. Quail Run is better for its large community, great communication, and well education. I remember that the school principle had a principle of the year reward. Twin Creeks has that well education, but is small and has poor communication. The way I say what Twin Creeks is about doesn't make it a bad thing, actually, in real life, I think their tied even if Quail Run has more stars. Its tough for me, so I am going to put 4 stars.

We just finished our third year at Quail Run and love it! The parent involvement through the PTA, Learning Fund and classroom volunteers is amazing! We are like one big community all looking out for each other. The teachers are fantastic and truly care. The administration is AMAZING and supportive of everyone. My only problem has been Mrs Verbani, the PE teacher. She obviously doesn't like her job. I understand that to deal with that many children you need to be somewhat strict but she is over the top. I have witnessed her on many occasions and I don't like the way she treats the kids. Telling them to "stop being such wimps" after they get hurt (and still have swelling a day later from) is not conducive to a positive learning environment. Making children cry and be fearful of you is just plain bullying. I am too hesitant to take it any further though because I don't want my child to be targeted by her continuously.

Quail Run has just been approved for the first Mandarin/English immersion program in the district in May 2011! We will have the first 50:50 immersion program available beginning Fall 2011 for Kindergartener, and the plan is to add one additional level per year. This is awesome....understanding a second language is so important in this global economy, and we are glad that QR is on the edge of keeping up with this evolving trend.

I've had the privilege of long-term subbing at both Live Oak and Quail Run. As a Windemere parent of a future student, I'd prefer my child attend QR. I've worked with 4 different principals. Mrs. Loflin is at the top of my list in terms of her leadership. The teachers at QR do seem more approachable. I've had numerous students tell me they love it there! The after school programs offered there are a bonus.

My daughter went to Quail run last year in decemeber and I was amazed at the school and specially her teacher in 4th grade. she helped her so much in adjusting to the school and the class. she was so easily accessible for any questions i had. both me and my daughter loved it there. but since our home school was hidden hills we have this year moved here. I have to agree , my experience at quail run was much better. In hidden hills I have seen her teacher only twice , one at the back to school night and second the conference day. i found quail run more open and welcoming and the parents also more friendly. The principal and the admin staff are also very friendly and helpful.

One of my children is at Hidden Hills and my other is at Quail Run. They both have fantastic teachers and are both strong academically, but I'd have to say I prefer Quail Run. They have a more diverse "real world" population, teachers and the PTA spend more time developing the whole child (Hidden Hills is more test score driven), and the vibe is much more welcoming, open and friendly. The principal and PTA parents at Quail Run are much more in touch and involved with the families. I was also at Tuesday's PTA meeting and there was well over 300 parents and 15 teachers there. The principal and PTA really set a great tone there and it's contagious. The one drawback about Quail Run is all the construction that is going on, but homes are needed there and it's temporary.

My daughter has been there for 4 years. I have no other school to compare it to but I can say without a doubt that the teachers genuinely care about the students and are passionate about educating them. I think it comes from Ms. Lofin the principal because she and the teachers seem to have a wonderful bond and connection. They are real life heroes. The PTA and parent participation 2 years ago was very disappointing to say it kindly. A new group headed by a father took over the PTA last year and completely turned things around. I attended the PTA meeting a couple of nights ago and it was standing room only. I couldn't be happier or more pleased than I am at this school.

I wish we had had a great experience at this school. We did not. We actually requested a transfer to a different school in the district and were relieved when we received it. The facility is beautiful, the staff is lovely adn super nice but for some reason there was a complete lack of discipline and control. After numerous meetings with the school we had to remove our children from the situation.

I have 2 children that go to 2 different elementary schools in the district. Due to unavailable space, my younger got redirected to Quail Run, which I was initially upset about because my older goes to our designated home school (I will not name) that is much closer to our home. Teachers at both schools are EXCELLENT, however, I've noticed a big difference between the schools in other areas. Quail Run has a much more welcoming, caring and friendly feel. I feel like I m a part of an active community there. For example, the PTA at Quail Run has done some different things to bring the parents and teachers together to help our children. There was over 100 parents at the last PTA meeting and there wasn t even a guest speaker. The average of the 3 meetings I ve been to so far has been around 100, compared to our home school PTA meeting where we usually get the same 20 to 25 parents that always show-up. From what other Quail run parents have told me, there is a big difference this year compared to previous years when things weren t as good. Lucky for us. I d love for my older to transfer to Quail Run, but I don t think they would allow it. I just hope that my younger can stay at Quail Run as long as possible.

Quail Run was a great school for myself and my daughter, Bailey. We were new to the school and to California, so being a part of Quail Run, we both met and formed many great relationships with some of the most wonderful people from faculty and staff, to parents, to kids. I also praise them for the education Bailey received. It's been invaluable and made her ready for middle school this year. Thanks to everyone. We really appreciate you all!

I teach at Quail Run, and it is truly a privilege. Quail Run's administrators model hard work and respect every minute of the day; teachers and students follow that model. Our motto: Every Minute Counts is not just verbiage. All adults and students work hard each minute of the day: Students are placed in math and language arts groups at their 'Just Right' level daily, Readers and Writers workshop are taught & practiced daily, and keeping up with the high standards and using the latest research-based teaching, we are implementing Math Talks and Problem of the Month this year. This list goes on...a warm place with a rigorous curriculum.

Quail Run Elementary School represents a cutting-edge 21st century school. It is one of the most socio-economically and ethnically diverse schools in the San Ramon Valley School District. In fact, the school has a high number of special education participants, well over 10% of the student body and a high number of children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, well over 5%. Yet, the school maintains one of the highest Academic Performance Indices (API) in the state. It is among the few public elementary schools in California to receive a distinguished Great Schools Rating of 10 out of 10. My two children who attend this special school receive not only excellent academic support but also receive equally important real world education by interacting with other children of wonderfully diverse backgrounds in terms of different culture, race, ethnicity, mental abilities, and socio-economic standing. A microcosm of the real world is at Quail Run Elementary School.

Quail run has the best teachers, most friendly... My daughter had been in two private pre-schools and we always had a phase where she disliked school. The school starts at 9:00 a.m and she would complain about not going to school... But once is Quail run she just gets up by 7:00 a.m and is always talking about what she is going to do at school that day and is very eager to get to school..The love and affection shown by staff, students makes her go to school with a smile and I am thankful for it

Quail Run is an excellent school, we moved down to San ramon because we heard about the quality of education and saw the rating on great schools. Coming from an african culture that values education highly, we enrolled our dear son at quail run and have not been disappointed. Thank you Mrs Fink and all the teachers at Kids' country for being so warm, loving and inspiring, we appreciate the way you care for our son. The diversity that is so welcomed at Quail run is also a plus. as black parents we dont feel despised or ignored in any way, all the kids play together and parents get to know each other--its all great. thanks to the leadership of Quail run for maling it an exempalry school in San Ramon.

I am not impressed by California schools as a whole. Compared with the previous school our kids attended in another state, this school likes a joke and we have to work hard to make our kids more academically comparable with their previous schoolmates. we sent our kids to more private lessons or do a lot of on-line practice and hope those will add something to their learning so that they will not fall behind too much. My kids used to be the best in their class but we are now so worried about their future since we do not think they learn much from current school. We feel it was mistake to come here and paid dearly for something not worth.

Core academics is reasonable, nothing extraordinary here. I had two kids go there this year (2006-7). There is no art program. Teachers are a mixed bag, I met some good teachers unfortunately they were not my kids teachers. Both my kids teachers were not able to competently handle behavior issues in classroom. Principal comes across as someone who thinks running a school is just about raising funds.

We were not impressed by this school regardless it's new or not. They have overwhelmingly donations from the first day of the school. The second problem is the disciplines. This is a public school and the rules are not strict for some kids who dress up funny or dye their hairs colorful. The teachers are not very helpful helping the diverse kids interact with each other. This concerned us a lot. Overall, we are not impressed by this school. The building and facilities are new. But it has lots of other problems.

My son's had several teachers in preschool and has never said that about any one of them accept for Ms. Fink. So I just want to say how much my wife and I appreciate you teacher our child. Thank you!

Quail Run is a beautiful new school but I have my concerns. Neither I nor my daughter have felt comfortable at Quail. And since Quail is a new school in a new community, I would think they'd be extra communicative with parents and especially the students in letting them know what is expected, where to go etc. Plus give the students leeway to figure their new school out. My 3rd grader has been soo upset because teachers have been telling her she has been doing things wrong, embarassing her in front of class, during the first week of school! Please remember these are children...with super emotional feelings.
