What a great school! My kids love to go to school each day! The curriculum is solid, the teachers are fantastic and the administration is constantly striving to do more! That's a five star school to me.
I wanted to write a honest review for parents looking for a new school or coming into the area. Its is very true that KQA has some really good teachers and a good principal, however here is the rest. New parents should understand that this is a charter school, they are open to the public but they are not run or funded like a public school. KQA offers 1 resource teacher for K-8th grades, THIN, but the school is not funded for any more than 1. Charter schools are run by a board and depend on volunteerism. You will be asked to be very involved, which we found to be a good thing. You can expect MANY fundraisers, KQA has a PTO that is big on "begging" the community and parents for funds. As far as the middle school, it a great small environment, but does not offer much in extra curricular or electives. Sewing class taught by a Para. This school also reserves a week to "prep" the kids for TCAP testing, we disagree with this! I do not think this is a bad school, it has downfall like every school, I do believe it does the best it can w/ limited resources, I just feel parents should get a clear view before choosing. On the other hand the rest of the districts schools stink!
My school Knowledge Quest Academy is the best school I have ever been to. All the teachers make sure to help you and always make sure you understand. The teachers and all the staff are very welcoming. Mrs. Spritzer is the best principal anyone could ever ask for. She is always interacting with the students making everyone feel welcomed and important. I started going to KQA last year and i'm now in 7th grade. I love this school so much and i'm really going to miss it when I go to high school. All the students are very kind and welcoming. I LOVE Knowledge Quest Academy and recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to learn.
I HAVE BEEN WITH KQA SENCE MY DAUGHTER WAS IN 4TH GRADE AND SHES 21 NOW. WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH MANY UPS AND DOWNS GOOD AND BAD. TE ONE THING THAT STAYS THE SAME THROUGH IT ALL IS THE STAFF FROM THEN TO NOW. THEY REALLY CARE AND EVEN HAVE THIER FAVORITES JUST LIKE MY CHILDREN HAVE. LOVE YA STAFF FOR THEN TO NOW . GREAT PEOPLE
We love everything about KQA. The teachers, staff, the welcoming community family environment are all exceptional.
My granddaughters attend KQA. Both need extra help with their school work. Teachers and staff work to help them with their needs. Teachers and staff are very friendly and have great expectations of the students and help them meet the expectations. The girls attended another charter school prior to our move to Milliken. I was pleased with the previous one but am even more please with KQA.
My daughters love the school. They have had great teachers who are excellent at not just teaching them academics but at seeing who they are and helping the to grow as a person. We have had a great experience!
My son has ADHD, he has a very hard time with staying still and focusing. I have had him attend 3 different school in hopes of finding the right fit. Windsor Charter Academy had the worst resource. This year @ KQA has been his best. His resource teacher really cares and tries to come up with ways to make learning fun and interesting for him. Patti Engel is an amazing resource teacher. She has the credentials & education to work with these students We look forward to our son completing the next 3 year at KQA and feel confident with Ms. Engel help he will receive the best education in this area.
I absolutely LOVE my school! :) It has great, kind, awesome teachers and a loving staff which cares for us dearly. I never want to leave it! Too bad in a year I do.
Very involved teachers and staff. No bully tolerance. Has a fantastic curriculum. Most of all, the kindergarten here is the best around.
Excellent staff and great learning environment! My children have been attending this school for a couple of years now and we love the uniforms and the teachers.
Knowledge Quest Academy is a first rate school for parents who desire their children be taught academics as well as life lessons. KQA teaches our children how to be well rounded individuals by instilling respect, kindness, compassion, as well as academics. I have never met more polite, bright and eager to soak up knowledge children in my life. What a thrill to be able to send our child to KQA!
Knowledge Quest Academy is not only an institute of Education, its a small community of people who love our school, our teachers and our kiddos. I have two students who have been apart of the KQA family. Our first child received a top notch education that sent her into highschool prepared and ready. Our second child struggles with education, but is treated like a valued member of the KQA family. The Resource department works hard to help our child not only succeed but excel, by teaching techniques that help our child to self advocate and use tool to be independent. We have no interest in looking any place else for our child's educational needs. We will continue to be a part of the KQA family for years to come.
KQA is a fabulous school with amazing teachers and students!!! So lucky my family gets to be a part of this amazing school! It is not just considered a school, it's the KQA family!!!
This is my 11th year as a parent of a student at Knowledge Quest Academy. My children have been educated in not only areas of academics but character as well. They have been challenged, celebrated, encouraged and excited about school. The teachers really strive to identify and meet the needs of each individual student. The staff works well with parents. The school is a welcoming place to visit. Parental volunteers are welcomed in such a manner that it is a pure joy to be a part of this community.
All 3 of my kids go to this awesome school! I love how dedicated the principal and most of the teachers are!
knowledge quest academy is a great school. My son started going here in kendergarden and he loves it.. The teachers helped him settle in and get to know the routine of the new school. The principal helped us the minute we walked into the school to register him. Everyone is always greeting you and helpful. My son is now in first grade and does more academically then any kid I know. When talking to my son he says he never wants to leave his school.. We love the parent involvement as well as the staff at KQA
Our school has wonderful teachers in a tiny community! Teachers who have wonderful innovative ideas on how to teach children new things! Great school with wonderful staff!
Apart from the obvious Academic Excellence, I believe great teachers make a school great! If the school principal and his/her teachers altogether are cheerful, enthusiastic, compassionate, and have a passion for teaching, it automatically translates to a great school! All I have to say is they are an awesome bunch of teachers!!!!
KQA is a great school! The school provides smaller classrooms and a community environment! The teachers, principal and staff encourage a positive school place and will go the extra mile if needed! I feel lucky to have my kuds here. Thanks KQA!
