I am very impressed with this school. Our oldest atarted in the third grade and we had no problems. The staff communicated with us when they had concerns about our son's reading ability and they worked with him; and now he's in the 6th grade and has been given the opportunity to take advanced English, Language Arts classes for 7th grade and he won a poetry contest. If it had not been for the concern and dedication that was taken, he may not have had these opportunities. My middle children are in kindergarten and the teachers are excellent. My boys are already writing sentences and reading level 1 and level 2 books. The other schools my oldest went too, the curiculum was not this advanced. I feel assured that my boys are not just learning their ABC's, 123's, shapes and colors. I would definately recommend QES.

Ver well organized, progressive & challenging school. They really get the parents involved & have many fun programs for the children. They are always communicating & letting you know what is going on.

Our daughter just completed her 4 years here (K-3) and every year we have had wonderful teachers. It has always proven to be a warm environment, and nurturing to not only the child's mind, but their whole self. The administration is open and approachable, and not afraid to be silly to get the kids to buy into things. We have been extremely happy!

My daughter is now in 1st grade at QES. She is thriving and happy. I never wanted my child at such a large school but I have to say that I couldn't be more pleased. The staff and volunteers are the most nurturing and encouraging people one could ask for. The children are definitely the #1 concern. They invite parents in to the school at any time. The school asks for parent volunteers consistently but do not ask for more time than you can give. QES is definitely parent/student friendly. It is a wonderful school.

About the tests

Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2013-2014 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. At present 2013-14 results are available only for English language arts and math. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
