Quest Early College High School5

Quest is an awesome school! My son is currently a sophomore and is doing very well. It was a struggle in his first semester freshman year. But when they tell you to expect 3hrs of homework on average a night, they mean it! Quest is very challenging academically. My son took 2 dual credit courses his freshman year. So, he's already doing college level work with college level expectations to go along with it. Quest sets the bar very high, however the teachers offer the students many opportunities for help, by way of morning tutorials (almost every day) and learning labs during the day. They really want the kids to do well. Quest also has a 'family' system instead of home room, but the kids will be with the same advisor and same kids for all four years. The families consist of all grade levels, 9-12, which works well because the upper classmen are so helpful to the freshmen and really seem to take them under their wings and give them advice about classes, staying on top of their course work and about their college admissions experiences. Imagine, Seniors actually helping freshmen! Overall, Quest Early College High School has been a blessing for our family.
I would have to disagree with you, the dragons are the best. I go to quest currently, I'm a freshman, and out of all the other schools I went to this one is the best. The other students are friendly and the teachers are to. The teachers actually care about your education unlike other schools. Most get to scool earlier than they have to and help any one who needs it. Overall quest is a great school
I used to attend Quest High School. I attended Quest my Freshman and Sophomore year, and have now transferred to Kingwood High School. I miss Quest so much, I think about it every day. The students were very accepting, I practically knew everyone. But when I transferred to KHS, I didn't get that warm welcome at all. All the kids were in their cliques and I was laughed at for being different and not having any friends. I'm glad to say I'm getting out though. I've managed to drop down one credit plan to the 22 credit and I am taking summer classes to graduate early. I had to switch because of my own fault though, I let myself get too social at Quest and forgot about work. It's not the schools fault, it's just how I operate. I needed a change of scenery. But, boy, I sure regret it. At Quest, I had my first real friends, not ones that act all fake and such. I also joined a band and found more about who I really was. Quest is a great school. Shame it's changing from the original plan, moving towards the Early College High School thing, but there's nothing you can do about it. All in all, great students, great teachers, and great school. Also, family is awesome. (Especially the Owls!)
My daughter is about to graduate from Quest. We have both enjoyed these past four years. The facilitators are amazing. They genuinely care. I don't think she could have received a better education anywhere. From service learning to the senior exhibitions it has been one long and wonderful ride.
Choosing to attend Quest is one of the best educational decisions we have ever made with our daughter. She enjoys the culture of the school and is challenged by the interdisciplinary approach to academics.
This school is absolutley amazing! It is the best! It has made me a better person and they actually make sure you understand what they teach you there. The faciilitators there are just wonderful. At Quest your opinion matters. They make you feel like an actual person and not just some student. Going to Quest High School is the best decision I have made in my entire life!!
I am a sophomore at Quest High School and all I have to say is that my school is the most inviting, warm, and exciting learning environment any one can ask for. I have made so many new friends peers and teachers alike. Everyone lends a helping hand and really cares about you personally. My teachers come up with such unique ways to teach that really helps kids with different learning styles. Due to a low student teacher ratio, every student can receive one on one time with any teacher they wish. I love my school and wouldn't change my decision to attend it for the world.
