There is a wonderful mix of experienced teachers that have taught for decades.... along with some younger and very enthusiastic and kind teachers! This is a wonderful place that is getting better every year!

Quarry Hill is one of several excellent elementary schools in the Pennsbury School District. Teachers go out of their way to cater to each child as much as possible and in my experience go out of their way to keep an ongoing dialogue with parents. I feel that my son is challenged, but nurtured at the same time.

This school is excellent. The teachers are supportive and mindful of each kid's learning style, and they will go the extra mile to accommodate you and your family. The PTO is amazing and is very involved. Quarry Hill has a lot of great programs too as part of the curriculum, Gifted and Talented, Math Olympics, and the PTO partially funds some of the after school acitivites (such as chess, karate, Lego club, etc; plus an awesome Science Fair with amazing opportunities for the kids to meet with real scientists making real experiments). I think this school is simply astounding.

Our family has lived in many places over the last few years, so we have experienced lots of different school systems. Quarry Hill definitely stands out of one of the best we have seen! Strong community, caring and creative teachers, and lots of happy kids! You will love it here!

We moved to the school district last year when my daughter was entering 4th grade. We were somewhat concerned about the transition but any worries we had quickly disappeared. The teachers and aides are wonderful, warm and supportive. The principal is very involved with the daily on-goings and the PTO is simply amazing. The programs and activities at school are awesome - PA Day, Reading Olympics, Science Club and Immigration Station, just to name a few. My daughter loves Quarry Hill School and is already sad at the thought of 'graduating' next year!

I am utterly impressed with the kindness of the teachers and staff, and their willingness to go above and beyond for my child. Everyone from the homeroom teacher, to reading specialist, guidance counselor and principal, were nothing but kind to me and to my child while we were working through some learning disability issues. I've never been treated with so much dignity and respect by school employees before.

This is an excellent school with a superb principal and wonderful staff. My daughter went to Quarry Hill and my son is in 4th grade. Both kids love the school and the environment. This school is probably the best or one of the best elementary schools in Bucks County.

My son came to Quarry Hill in 3rd grade and did not adjust very well the first year. He is now in 4th grade and is very happy at this school. Last school year, there was not much acknowledgment that he was the only one in the class who did not know anyone. This year he is receiving a good education and has a wonderful teacher. Much of the rating has to do with individuals, which is a part of the overall learning. The principal seems to keep up to date on the students, but is not the most fuzzy, warm person to lead an elementary school.

The school, it's staff and their dedication, command of their charges and their own willingness to go-the-extra-ten-miles are simply not to be had elsewhere. I know, I've had my child elsewhere. Every bit as good as a private school, jut with the diversity that's often lacking in the private sector.

My son transferred to Quarry Hill in the middle of his 1st grade year. He was having difficulty at another (charter) school that was not meeting his Special Ed. needs. I had heard wonderful things about Q.H. from friends, especially about the reading specialists there. All I can say is that everyone, including the Principal, at Quarry Hill bent over backwards to make my son feel welcome, and to get him the learning support he needed to succeed. He is now in 2nd grade. His reading specialists have been fantastic, and his reading is now on grade level. Though he continues to need support, I feel confident Quarry Hill will continue to meet his needs as he progresses through the school. My daughter is now there, too, as a kindergartner.

We have been at Q.H for 7 yrs. I only 2 more to go. It has been wonderful for the kids. The staff is really great and anytime I needed help with anything, they were right there. Even the Principal. Which does not happen in other areas in P.A. My one child is entering Middle school this year and I only hear great things and I can not wait to see for myself.
