This school is amazing. Our children have grown a tremendous amount in just a short period of time since beginning to attend. Each of our children have very different needs, yet the staff has met all of them accordingly, allowing our children to surpass our previous expectations for them. Our children are developing into confident, inquisitive learners. The staff & teaching methodology really enable each child to thrive in his/her own way. The theology behind the teaching practice is also carried over into the family involvement/volunteer opportunities. It is a parent owned school, so each family is encouraged to contribute his/her own talents (serving on different committees, as board members, maintenance, fundraising, etc). For parents looking to provide their child with a lifetime love of learning, as well as an outstanding education, this is the place to enroll!
We have been thrilled with this school. We have moved across the country several times and thus my children have attended 4 different private school and this one is the tops. The teachers are outstanding and really teach to the individual child. Instead of forcing the children to fit in a box, they let them grow and learn in their own way. It has been wonderful watching my children excel and thrive
My five year old boy started at the QCMS as an alternative to day care or public school kindergarten in the fall of 2010. It is a small and very friendly school and my child has flourished there. The school is blessed with excellent teachers and support staff. It is too small to have a principal or head administrator so these tasks are completed by the teaching staff. The school is owned by the parents so that it is hoped, if not expected, that families will participate in the life and running of the school - volunteering to do maintence, laundry and that type of thing. The school is run by a board made up of parents - I would strongly recommend attending board meetings if not directly participating in board decisions.
This is a small school that goes up through 6th grade. The children here are so well rounded and confident in their abilities. The staff is great and really works with each parent on providing the very best education for their child's individual needs. I can't say enough about how wonderful this school is.
