As a student at Quest Middle School i feel everyday like i want to transfer to another school. It pretty much makes me miserable to go there & some of the teachers put you down there. I know i can do better work than what they give me. I cant wait until i leave this year and start at a public school where i belong! After being there for 3 years i want to leave soo much!

My child with Asperger's is doing much better at this school. The environment is much better than in the school district where these students are always in trouble. At Quest, the children are accepted and become leaders.

My child has improved dramatically since entering Quest. They go out of their way to make each child feel confident and every child is included in all extracurricular activities. They have a wonderful and dedicated staff.

This school is only good for catering to the needs of children with disabilities. This school is very needy, lacks organization and is very incompliant, meaning they never answer phones, never respond to emails and there is absolutely no effort for parent teacher communication.

So far so good!! I have a child with Aspergers Syndrome and this school seems to be tailor made for him. I have been so angry with the Hillsborough county school system and their ability to handle children with disabilities but Quest is the answer to my prayers. Anyone with a child that has a learning disability should or any thing like it should contact this school. It is a drive but well worth it.

About the tests

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
