This is an awful school. If your goal is to squash your childs love of school and learning then send them here.
My son has attended QG since K. He is now in 5th grade. As he walked down the hall on the first day of school this year....his 1st-4th grade teachers all called him by name and asked how was his summer. He is not a boy who 'loves' school and would rather play sports than study or read. However, the great teachers at QG have realized he is a boy and always challenged him to do his best. When he needed extra 'help' the teachers stayed after school to catch him up and he has done so well. I send my son to school for an education... not parties, lunch room fun or sweet front office people. My son is really not self-motivated in the class room. However, since he is not, that is our job as parents. This is a great school!
Queen's Grant is another option out there for parents seeking to educate their children. It just so happens that this option has been my family's best option since its inception. No school is perfect, but I feel that most of the teachers and adminstration really care about the progress of your child. I have never had a problem with the size of classes when you have a quality teacher who has a set of defined rules to govern the classroom. I like structure for my children, they do better when they have it. I only feel that classroom are stressful when they do not have a structured classroom or parent helper. As for a lack of cafeteria - who cares - it really does not affect my child's ability to learn and interact for that brief time that they eat and ready to go out to play. Non-issue!
queens grant is a small environment but can be stressful. there are 27 students in the class with one teacher and lots of parents running around helping. but with the large class size, if your child isn't a self-motivated learner, it is very stressful. also there is no cafeteria, so they eat lunch at their desk and with the hour longer than public schools these children have a long day at their desks. just something to consider when looking at this school.
QG is a wonderful school with a private school appeal. It is small enough that everyone knows your child by name and they aren't just another student. The majority of teachers are loving and compassionate people. The only downside of the school is the front office staff. They are not warm and hospitable like secretaries should be. You feel as though you a bother when you enter the office.
Outstanding Academics Best School in the State! i know that this school has an unimaginable portion of intelligence and academic success!
My daughter attends Queens Grant. I would agree that is is a safe, 'private school' environment. I really like the morals education and the fact that it is applied within the classroom and school as a whole. I also like the fact that I am always welcome at the school and encouraged to get involved in her education. The teachers we have had so far, have been above average. The curriculum is challenging. My only concern is the fact that language arts and math are ability grouped on some grade levels. I see the positives and negatives of this approach. That said, my daughter likes school and is really happy there.
We love Queen's Grant! My son just finished Kindergarten and had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is very safe and invinting here. Most importantly, all parents are involved and at the school often so the parents get to know the each other as well as the kids. The individual attention is awesome and the moral focus the school puts forward is very important to our family.
