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.

The atmosphere at Quail Run is awesome. The principal, teachers, and staff are amazing! My daughter has become an independent thinker due to her attendance at Quail Run. The ethnic diversitiy and socio-economic diversity creates a global setting for our children. The teachers are diligent, open-minded, caring, and hardworking. The parking lot is still scattered with cars at 5 o'clock when I go to pick my daughter up.

What a wonderful school! My daughter has attended Quail Run since kindergarten and we have loved every moment of it. Principal Carol Loflin and Vice Principal Christine Koehne are fantastic people who love the children at Quail Run and welcome every parent with open arms. The staff is amazing very buttoned up and on top of everything. We ve had the pleasure of having Ms. Fink, Ms. DeRenzi, Ms. Walsh and Ms. Peck as teachers and I cant say enough about the academic growth I ve seen in my daughter she is reading above grade level and loves going to school.

The academic methods are incredible!! The staff works well with the student and the parents to ensure high academic achievement in preparation, in creating open roads of different teaching methods to ensure each child's success. Quail Run Elementary is a huge family of staff, children, parents, a community that opens the door to the Answer for the Question (if need to be asked), as well as being updated with the growing technology so that the children can be proud,confident in today's competitive world.

Quail Run Elementary is an exceptional school. Their attention to detail is unsurpassed. The team truly cares for all its students and their future. I know my son is getting the best education and support any parent can ask for. I would not have my children attend any other school. Thank You.

great community school with caring, enthusiastic, and energetic teachers and lots of involvement from the PTA and families to constantly improve and ensure extra-curricular and academic programs remain in place. School is efficient in keeping parents informed about whats going on, being green by going paperless and utilizing e-mail to reduce costs and be more resourceful, and using creative ways to raise money such as the annual on-line auction.

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 Elementary is a caring, fun, high-achieving, high-spirited and global environment. My kids have been a part of this school since it's inception of 100+ students and now with 700+. Nothing has changed in terms of infrastructure and studies - just more diversity and students!

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.
