Aurora Quest Academy Reviews

By a Parent on

We absolutely LOVE Aurora Quest K8!

I have two boys at Aurora Quest Academy and we have been part of the school for over three years.  
My boys look forward to going to school each and every day and we as parents are happy that they are challenged every day.   A great aspect of the school is that our kids are allowed to just be kids.  In the four years at this school, I have never felt like my children have been labeled as “gifted”,  but rather they are looked at as kids. Academically, the curriculum is geared towards how GT students learn best, but my kids still are not aware they are GT. It's not that I think the label is bad, I just don't think it's important and  that also seems to be the atmosphere of the school.    Both my boys have very little homework and because of this, my kids have the opportunity to explore their own interests and we have time to be a family.   Another one of my favorite aspects of the school is that every day my eldest son comes home and tells me about the fun imaginary games he plays at recess everyday with his friends.  He's almost 9 and because of the atmosphere at this school he's not forced to grow up to fast.  He is allowed to be himself. The detailed and complex imaginary games he plays with his friends teach him leadership skills and allow him an outlet for his creativity.   The games these kids play could be made into a movie and I look forward to hearing about their storyline.  My younger son has a unique personality and sometimes expresses his creativity in unique ways.  This has never been a problem at this school.  His differences are excepted and he's never stared at or teased for being different.  Having the freedom has given both my sons the confidence to be themselves and excel both academically and socially.   The teachers my boys have had at Quest have all been amazing teachers who support and give my children the freedom to be unique.  This atmosphere of support and acceptance of individuality allows my children the freedom to have a healthy sense of self.  

Not only is this school give my children the freedom to be individuals, it also has been proven to grow their minds academically.  I'm not talking about CSAP scores either.  Having a student body of GT and advanced learners, it's no surprise we have high CSAP scores, but our children are also showing high growth from year to year academically.  

The only negative I have to complain about is that I wish the Principal was more present in the school.  My son's don't really know her and I find it very sad. I asked my son if he knew her name and he thought the Dean was the Principal.   The Vice Principal is definitely more present and is very involved with the students.  He is very approachable and just in general a very nice man.  My kids absolutely love him and so do we!

If you have a GT kid who seems to not quite fit in, this is the place where uniqueness and individuality are supported and grown!
