My daughter started 2nd grade at Quail Run in the middle of last year because we were diverted to Walt Disney when we moved here. She had no trouble adjusting because her teacher, classmates, and office staff were very helpful. She is now in 3rd grade and says Quail Run is the best of the 3 different schools she has attended since Kindergarten.
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.
The school and its teachers should focus more on academics , and then on extra curricular activities.
My son Sean is a student at Quail Run Elementary and has been there for the 2nd year - he has Autisim. We are very impressed with the staff at Quail Run and their dedication to children - the administration and teachers work very hard to provide our children with the best education. This is the most diverse school I have ever had a child in and it has opened our eyes and minds beyond our expectations. Quail Run is a testament to what can be achieved when a community works together.
My son was diverted from our home school to Quail Run. He is now in Second Grade. He loves this school so much that he decided to continue with the same school. The Principal is very kind and on task all the time, the Staff is a wonderful team and work hard to help the children improve in all the aspects.
Ms. Loflin and Ms.Koehne are very personable and easy to talk to.The teachers are very dedicated, but young and inexperienced. I give high marks for the seeming sensitivity to the cultural and racial diversity.It's a new school. Let's find out what heights of greatness it can achieve. Note to parents: volunteer, volunteer, volunteer!
After our 1st year at Quail Run, we were asked if we wanted to come back to Coyote Creek. Our son decided that he wanted to stay with Quail Run because he likes the principal and the teachers. This is our 3rd year at Quail Run, and we are glad to be part of this school. We should be glad that we have such diversity as it is just a representation of the real world out there.
My son was redirected to Quail Run at the beginning of the 2006-7 school year and is now starting his second year there as a 3rd-grader. Despite all the new things and changes that occurred throughout the year (students, teachers, campus, etc.), I thought the teaching staff and principal (Mrs. Loflin) did a fantastic job with my son s education and personal growth.
My children are currently in the 4th and 1st grade there. I had the opportunity to place both of them in Coyote Creek at the beginning of the school year, and I m so glad that I didn t because the teaching staff and principal are just amazing. Their teachers are so loving, caring, and focused on growing my children both academically and socially. I love the diverse student body. Beautiful new campus.
We have nothing but praise for Quail Run and the Special Education Program. Miss Lynn Ferguson has been so caring and has gone out of her way to make all the students feel good and confident about themselves. We could have changed to a closer school but wanted to stay with this excellent program. Congratulations Mrs Loflin and all your staff.
My child was a 5th grader at Quail Run for year 2006-2007. Although the campus is new and beautiful, I strong feel that my child did not have a solid learning experience there. The quality and quantity of the curriculum planned for this particular grade level were poor and need improvement. Overall, my child was not learning much throughout the year.
I would like to say that Quail Run is wonderful because it offers the most ethnic diversity in San Ramon. My child's home school is Coyote Creek but perfers to stay at Quail Run so we will be back next year.
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 been in preschool for 2 years and started kindergarten when the school opened last August. Recently I asked how he like the school and his response was 'I like it because it's new.' I asked him about his teacher and he says 'Miss Fink is the best teacher in the whole wide world!' 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! From very appreciative parents.
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.
'Quail run' brand new wonderful School! The 5th grade teacher Mrs Dami and 2nd grade teacher Mrs Smith are best teachers in San Ramon city. They have pure passion of teaching for children. We are extremely lucky to have our kids attend Quail Run in San Ramon. S Joon Park & C Hee Park
Quail Run, Congratulations on your first very successful year! The credit goes to Mrs Loflin and her wonderful team of staff and teachers. Our son chose to return to Quail Run (opted out from Coyote Creek)as he believes that this is the best school for him to excel academically and social development.
