MY CHILD GRADUATED FROM QCA. SHE IS IN HIGH SCHOOL NOW AND TAKING ALL HONORS COURSES!! SHE MAINTAINS A 4.0 GPA AND IS ABOUT TO BEGIN TAKING COURSES FOR COLLEGE CREDIT. I ATTRIBUTE THIS TO THE DISCIPLINE AND LOVE OF LEARNING INSTILLED IN HER AT HOME AND REINFORCED AT QCA. I DIDNT WANT MY CHILD IN A NORMAL PUBLIC SCHOOL AND QCA PROVED ITSELF TO BE A WONDERFUL ALTERNATIVE. THROUGH THE SUPPORT OF TEACHER AND ADMINISTRATION THE SCHOOL ALLOWS YOUR CHILD TO BE MORE THAN A NUMBER IN AN OVER CROWDED CLASS. IT ALLOWS YOUR CHILD TO FLOURISH AS AN INDIVIDUAL. YES THE WAITING LIST IS LONG BUT IF YOU CAN GET YOUR CHILD INTO QCA JUMP AT THE OPPORTUNITY.

This is my daughter's first year at QAC and so far she loves it. The Principal and the front office is very helpful. I am looking forward to a great year.

I love this school and my daughter loves going to school every day. The administrators take education and discipline very seriously. They work very hard to keep the children motivated and the parents informed of everything that is going on. Every child has an opportunity to shine in an area that they are strong in. I have no doubt that my daughter will be prepared for anything that comes her way after leaving this school both academically and socially.

QCA's families, staff, and administrators are continuing to grow and succeed. As the PTA president, and a parent there for the past 3 years, the school has evolved and is continuing to evolve day in and day out. Under the new leadership, we are very thankful to have the administrators we do. Parent involvement has certainly improved as well as the overall tone of parent participation. The students and staff are flourishing here. Of course there are still improvements to be made, however, it's a work in progress and I am confident that QCA will get the credit it deserves eventually. Even if the Plainfield Schools Superintendant gives us no support what so ever, we will continue to press on so that the entire state can see that QCA is a coveted institution.

Queen city academy is an excellent education alternative to the plainfield public school. It offers a home feeling to holistic education and the staff is genuinely concerned about educating the child. With a longer school day than most, children are given ample time to attain knowledge. Also, all children have spanish, dance, health, music, phycical education, technology-where each child has a laptop, art and other co-curricular courses. I love my qca family!

I have three children at QCA since kindergarten, they are academically challenged and the they love going to school. Teachers are always willing to help. Classrooms in the lower house are a little small.

I currently have two girls 5th & 6th, I love the school, the single gender classroom was better i believe, but no matter how the kids are well prepared, the staff is always willing to help in person or by phone, great school. I love discipline and dress code.

Great teachers, but awful administrators. Children are treated as military personnel rather than children.

I have my child in the 6th Grade and this is his first year at Queen City. I want to say I LOVE the Single Gender Classrooms for the son. He came from Plainfield Public and he has show drastric improvements over this year. The administration is always accessible to me either by phone or email. If you want a great place send your child to QCA.

Under the leadership of the current principal, I think QCA is continuing to evolve from being just an average school to a top performer. I currently have two kids in the school in kindergarten and second grade. They are very well challenged academically and are both doing very well with the active support of their dedicated teachers, and a well-disciplined, no nonsense academic environment. This is a complete departure from what you get in Plainfield public schools. If the current standard and culture is maintained, QCA test scores will be competing with the best NJ schools in few years.

I am the mother of a kindergartner at QCA. So far, I am liking the way in which the new principal is taking a open approach with the students and teachers. He is straight forward and I think he will lend some much needed discipline, which will in turn improve the school and its academic standing. Michele Smith-Hector

School has fluctuated in performance over the last year or so; but overall its better than the Plainfield Public School System. Smaller Classes seem to work for my children.
