We have attended for 6 years & currently have 2 children at Quest. The teachers and administration are some of the best you'll find in the Brevard area. We have had exceptional classroom experiences each year and additionally, have many friends & family members that would say the same. This school excels in many areas and the students seem to be very proud to learn there.

Quest is a fantastic school. We have three children currently enrolled. Every teacher we have ever had has been amazing. The staff is excellent too. It is a true community and we love being part of it.

Some of these reviews leave me questioning the overall rating of the school or if they're based on certain scenarios. We moved to Brevard County and found a home zoned for Quest Elementary specifically. I can not express enough how happy I am, as a parent, with the overall experience I've seen my child have at Quest. The school is not their for babysitting and they way they challenge students is proof of their dedication to academic growth. The school overall is a friendly and fun environment. I know the office staff well enough and have had many encounters with both the VP and the principal. All the staff is wonderful and friendly. They encourage parental involvement with the school and are always hosting family activities for the students. My child couldn't be any happier and neither could I as a parent.

Our experience has been with the pre K program. The teacher that we had did not teach at all. She did not care about challenging children to learn more. If you want an education for your pre K child you would be better off having them watch PBS. Very disappointing.

The office staff is warm and friendly. The child care program is excellent and has hours geared to working parents. My son has been at the school for 4 years and all his teachers have been awesome. He loves this school.

Moved from the northeast where all you hear about is how great the schools are so when we moved to Florida I did my research and decided on Brevard county. Quest has excellent teachers and assistance for students who need speech, Ot, pt. they communicate well and the front office is super friendly. There are threethings that bother me greatly about the district that is why I am only giving it three stars. They start the small kids so early in the morning when they are the ones that need the sleep and are hardest to take care of in the morning. It bothers me so much when I see 8th graders waiting for a bus at 9am while I had to wake my five yr old up. Secondly there is NO security at all. Anyone can just walk into the building and the kindergarten classes are right there, very scary. Lastly, they teach too much to the fcat and not to the specific child's needs. Overall, I am happy with quest just wish they would make some minor adjustments and then it would be five stars.

I graduated from Quest in 2010, and moved there when I was about to start third grade. Even after I left for middle school, I continued to visit the teachers, and people I knew who were younger then me. I Love the school so much, and would tell anyone looking for a school to go to Quest.

Quest is a great elementary school. Both of my children attended for k-6 and had very good experiences. Any issues I had with teachers were taken seriously by the staff and principal. I have not had any bad experiences with the current office staff. I rated 4 instead of five simply because of a lack of extra opportunities who high scoring students who are not gifted. Unfortunately, fact testing in Florida restricts time and what good teachers can do for kids...

The office staff is what ruins this school. I have never seen someone so disrespectful and condescending to parents as this office attendant. It is a shame because first impressions are everything and she successfully ruins Quest's. The principal is virtually non existent. The teachers are excellent. They really do care about the kids and are equally appalled by the disconnect from the staff and principals. Quest has so much potential if they remove the toxic people.

It has some good teachers, that's for sure! In my opinion, poor communication on the part of the principal, with parents and children alike. Major safety issues with the location of the office way past the lobby and front doors - the doors should be kept locked!! Lots of extras for those behind, but not much for those ahead of the curve who don't qualify for AP

We were SO fortunate to have our children attend Quest Elementary '06-'09 before we transferred out of state. They left us with a very high standard for our new schools. The teachers truly CARE about the children and they interact with them in their lessons so creatively. This makes the kids want to learn. My children will forever benefit from the writing WOW lab. The principal, however, could interact more with the kids in a positive way. Overall, Quest is Best!

We have been at Quest for three years. I have mixed review about the school. The teachers we have had have been great and my child has done very well in school because of the teacher's dedication and genuine concern for each student. Love the teacher. Unfortunately, I have found the administration staff to be very unapproachable and stand-offish. They don't seem all too interested in parent feedback or concerns and tend to make the same excuses for things that go unaddressed. The new hires in the office seem to have the same disposition and there is no longer a friendly vibe when you walk into the office. Basically, you are ignored. The previous front desk person was very welcoming and personable, unfortunately that person has been replaced with a replicant personality of the administrative team, stand offish and 'too busy' to notice you. Customer service training would benefit this school.

This is a great school! I have 2 kids in this school and we are in our 2nd year. Teachers are great, office staff is very nice and they know most kids by name. My youngest needed speech therapy and it is being attended to. Before grades were sent out, teacher called for conference b4 I asked for one-that's proactive! The 6th grade teachers team that my oldest has is great and they try to prepare that grade for middle school. FCAT scores are above average if you're looking for that too. They have creative fundraisers that include the parents too! How cute is it to have a Mother-Son luau and a Father-Daughter dance??!! I love that! Parent volunteers are welcome and it's a great way to know how the school works-if you can do that. I'm very pleased.

My kids loooove this school! They said that the teachers are absolutly wonderful and are the nicest teachers they have ever had. We recieved a postcard in the mail today that was mailed directly to my daughter and it was directly from her teacher(s), welcoming her to the school and a nice personal message asking her how her vacation was. We are so pleased with the way the environment as a whole is so great. To us, it makes a world of a difference if the kids are wanting to goto school.. Every person that I have come in contact with at this school have been very friendly and answered every single question that we have had, and gave us lots of information to read up on, and they show that they are very pleased to have my childeren in that school.

This school has been awesome. We were in private school prior to this and I find this school to be above the private education my children were receiving. My older son was behind and they have tried to help in so many ways to assure he gets back on line. I tend to think they work with the students who are behind more thna the gifted children but see that the teachers care about all the students. i have a child in 3rd and fourth and have both to be able to meet their needs even by changing their curriculum to do it.

My child is in the 4th grade at this new school and we are new to the area. We have found that with this area being so new, they don't have any extra programs for kids that may need extra help. You are just on your own. Not what we we use to. Where we come from the parents and teachers work together, to help all kids. Here if your child isn't top in the class, they don't know who you are. I've been to the school so many times and don't feel like they care. They act like they do but why don't they help these kids more. Not all kids learn the same or at the same rate. There isn't anything wrong with these kids. They may just need a little extra help. This school doesn't have that.
