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
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!
