We love this school! Great teachers, wonderfull staff, awesome facilities. If your child is gifted or an accelerated learner, this is the school you want your child to attend! I love that the student body is so diverse, and what is great is everyone is committed to their child attending - it isn't in a neighborhood persay, so it is basically its own community, but of choice. The parents all put in a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer work, so the school is very supported by its parents, and both sides (parents, staff) feel very appreciated. I love all the feedback I receive from my daughter's teachers, and my favorite part is that everyone (the staff, other students, etc.) seems to know her name, even though she is only in the 1st grade. Children are very challenged, and my daughter is personally challenged at her level - the teachers and staff have the freedom to challenge the children individually based on their own skill levels & talents. Love love love Aurora Quest K-8!!

I would give Quest 6 stars if I could. The school is well run. The teachers really care. The students are the best. The parents are involved. We had our son in private school for first grade and I am so glad we switched to Quest. Our family is truly lucky.

I have had one of my boys in Aurora Quest for 8 years, and my younger 2 were just accepted. This has been a wonderful school for my gifted boys. The teachers keep my kids challenged and interested in learning. Aurora Quest also give my boys the opportunity to further their education with high school credit in 7th and 8th grades. My oldest will be going on to high school to where he will not only receive his diploma, but an associates degree when he graduates. He will be able to do so because of the education he received at Aurora Quest K-8. I firmly believe that Aurora Quest K-8 is the best school in the state, not just my opinion, but with the state testing scores. The teachers are also top rated in my opinion. They actually care about the students to ensure they succeed.

I love this school. It has been the best decision to go here. The teachers really do know how to teach you, and if you are confused you can always go to them for help. I get the education I need, which was not given to me at my other school because I was always a higher level here. Bullying is not a problem and the friends you can get there are wonderful. This is a great school to go to.

This is a beautiful new school with caring adults, from the Principal, Assistant Principal, Dean, teachers and office staff. Everyone wants the children to suceed. My child is doing very well there. Most of the children are about working about 1 year in advance. This is the best school with a wonderful attitude toward gifted children

Wow! We are so impressed with this school, and our son has never done so well. Excellent teacher and staff, and a beautiful campus.

Posted January 6, 2009

My son went here before the new building & all I can say is dont waste your students time!!! The staff leaves much to be desired & the pricipal should not be dealing with young children!! The title 'Gifted' gives them a big head yet they treat the students no better than your average public school. Bullying was a huge problem & the lack of knowlegde on dealing with gifted students showed! I was very disappionted & actually withdrew him & found a Charter school. That was the best thing I could have done for him!!!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted December 20, 2008

Th things that were taught weren't any better than the public schools. The emphasis on 'gifted' wastes the majority of they're recourses. I hated my teacher, who was lazy. I also hated that before they got a new facility, it was just a mobile unit, and had one bathroom for boys in the whole place.

We feel that this school is changing our 2nd graders life. He is challenged every single day. He hated going to school before this year, even preschool. The principal, the assistant principal, the dean of students, the gym teacher, the music teacher, the staff at the front desk, the technology teacher, and especially the second grade teachers are more than fantastic! The kids get to play outside when there's snow on the ground, they get to run, laugh and be children. They do well in school because they are in a loving, safe, structured environment. The assignments are challenging and so much fun at the same time. We are so impressed with this school, and so thankful our son is getting his education at Aurora Quest Academy.

I went to this school and i have to say these teachers knew what they were doing. The staff is really nice but they do have ways of dealing with bad kids like in school suspention. Take it from someone who went there this place is really good.

I went to this school and it was excellent the teachers were nice, the staff was always happy, and our principal Mrs. Williams was always caring about our needs. I reccomend this school to everyone.

This school is a blessing to families with GT kids. The philosophy of the schools centers around some of the specific traits that GT kids have. By knowing the traits and characteristics of these kids, the school can nurture them and help them grow more fully than in a 'traditional' school. The school has high academic standards and is one of the highest performing schools in the state. The students are academically prepared for middle school and even high school. These students do incredible things! Also, the school offers many extras (such as chess club, Spanish club, Drama, Roots and Shoots) which are provided by an outstanding parental volunteers. Huge parent involvement and fantastic teachers and principal. We have loved our years here.

This is a great school. I am please with the quality of education my son is receiving. The teachers and principal care about each student's success.

My daughter went to this school the first year it opened. Granted, there are always problems in the first year, however, it seemed that there were areas that they were not interested in changing. Too much self esteem. Not enough basic core curriculum type education. Too much child-first point of view style. The teachers felt it was more important to make the kids feel SPECIAL than to educate and instill them with true sense of accomplishment. We do not know currently how they have improved these concerns, but we seriously doubt they have. Discipline was not something they were comfortable with. If a child did something bad they were sent to the guidance counsilor to 'work out' their problems, instead of being made to see that what they were doing was wrong. No black and white values in this school at the time we attended.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
