The Quaker School At Horsham 5

My child spent 4th grade at TQS. He spent 5th grade and in public school, and has continued into 6th grade in public school. I firmly believe that it was his experience at TQS in 4th grade that made his transition back to public school a success. The love, support, and ACCEPTANCE for kids who are unique gave him the confidence boost that he needed. He's confident in who he is, and is now thriving. I can't thank TQS enough.

The Quaker School at Horsham was sold to us as a school for bright kids who learn differently. The small class size and willingness to embrace each child's challenge seemed to be excellent qualities. However, as more severe behavioral issues crept into the school, the school lost its way. It lacked for not having a behaviorist of on staff, and teachers often blamed kids for their disability rather than teaching them in a loving way. Also, the passiveness that defines a Quaker school left little in the way of discipline as it was becoming a growing problem and more disruptive for the students to learn. I cannot recommend this school because it really seemed to have changed its mission from teaching those bring kids to dealing with various degrees of outbursts on a regular basis.

Wonderful, caring environment that builds self-esteem, creativity, and brings out the best in the kids. No matter how different each individual child is, TQS finds their strengths and makes the most of them, and then with love guides the child to becoming their best self - confident, secure and proud. The teachers truly care about every student, treat each student with dignity and as an individual, and the students themselves boost each other and care about each other to the point that different classes and grades intermix at various activities and planned events throughout the year - your child may be in a class as small as 3, but they have a building filled with 70+ friends. TQS is also always in a state of positive evolution - better assistive technology, better research-based programs, they never sit back on "this is the way it's always done" ... if anything, they seek to bring the newest and most innovative approaches. They have worked nothing short of a miracle with the broken shell of a little girl I brought them 4 years ago - I now have a happy, confident, engaged child who loves school, loves her friends, and is proud of herself and ALL the things that make her unique.

This is perhaps the top school in the area for students with special needs. Each student is treated with an individual program that a child can get nowhere else. A tremendous school!

Only good for children who have dyslexia. Other children who do not have a 'neat' diagnosis do not get their educationally needs met. Administration and faculty has changed frequently over the past two years and it has affected their program detrimentally. There are other schools who are better suited to fill the needs of children who learn differently. Make sure you check out the other schools and find out if they individualize their program to the student, not the curriculum.

TQS is a wonderful school. The staff is so caring and really works with the children. The parents are involved and very caring as well. We could not have made a better choice for a school. We are very happy with TQS and all it offers its students.

The entire staff at TQS is committed to helping the children succeed both academically and socially, as well. The environment fosters open communication, feedback and encouragement. It is truly a unique school!
