Quail Creek is the best school. From the first time I entered the doors last year, I was impressed. All the teachers are incredibly friendly and helpful, which is greatly appreciated. I also like the diversity of this school, which I consider to be a big plus. All the parents seem willing to help with PTA, class parties or fundraisers. The teachers always go the extra mile with the kids and are awesome at communication (a big plus for me!). I am so so thankful for this wonderful school & would definitely recommend it to other parents!

Quail Creek is a wonderful school! My daughter is currently in pre-k in Mrs. Doolins class and I have to say she is a great teacher. All the different activities and educational things the principal and PTA offer at this school is amazing. My daughter was writing her first and last name within the first month of starting at quail creek, without any prior schooling. I was amazed. Cannot wait until my 3 year old will attend this school. Very satisfied parents!!

During my 3rd grade year before I moved to Florida. A teacher literally told my mom to "go back where she came from" infront of the principle during a parent teacher confrence and no action was taken. That alone should tell you about the integrity of the school and if you know of these things and want your child there I feel sorry for you.

This school has discriminated against us and my child, the worst school, shame on you. I wish there was a zero star. If your religion is not Christianity, don' tell them.

I love QCE..my grandson has attended QC for 5 years and the attention he has received is unbelievable. Dr. Matthews and the teachers are among, if not the best in elementary education. Parent involvement is huge. Every teacher has shown genuine interest in my grandson's success. And as for individual attention, ratings are off the charts. We have loved and respected everyone at QC and will miss them next year.

Quail Creek goes over and above to provide the best education for our children.

I have three children enrolled at QC this year, and have been involved with this school for five consecutive years. The principal is superb! She promptly addresses every concern; the secretary/office administrator knows every child by name; the faculty treats each child as their own. The special education program is by far the best. I never dreamed that my children's learning needs would be so thoroughly addressed and that they would ever perform academically as well as they do. With the personal concern, commitment and genuine love of so many of the QC teachers for my children, they have soared academically! But they have also grown-up and matured in a healthy, safe environment, among adults whom they know truly love them. What more could a parent want for their young children than that?

We have 3 children at QC this year. We are very pleased to be part of this lovely community of families in this school. Our Principal is wonderful and attentive to the needs of each child. The Speech teacher is the best, and the IEP program is personalized to each child. Most all of the teachers are very good. The outdoor buildings are dreadful, but soon to be replaced. The only dilemma is middle and high school.

I have one son currently atteding this school and one son who has moved on to Middle School. Both of my children began at Quail Creek in Pre-K. This has been the best learning environment that money could not buy. My children have thrived and their lives and knowledge are foever enriched because of this school. I truly could not have asked for more as a parent. We proudly tell everyone that we attend and have attended Quail Creek. Thank you Quail Creek.

They involve parents great when they are needed for volunteer help. Discipline policy needs work severely.

My son went to Quail Creek for 2 years. He absolutely loved it. The classrooms were relatively small with wonderful kids and friendly teachers. The teachers were patient and helpful - full of creative juices. He learned a lot and still talks about it four years later.

I see an enormous amount of effort and input by parents at QC. However, the class size is much larger than I would like. My daughter's 3rd grade class had 25.

I have a daughter that has been with this school now K-4th grade. Every year I am amazed at how much involvement there is by the parents as well as the teachers. Everyone seems to put 110% into these children. In every way. I couldn't be happier.
