QPGS provides a strong academic and faith-based foundation for all students, starting as early as pre-K. Class sizes allow each child to receive appropriate one-on-one attention. Teachers, staff, and parents create a sense of community where kids are safe and also feel loved. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend QPGS !!! My son has been in QPGS since PreK4. My son is currently in 8th grade. This school has helped my child succeed on many levels. He is an excellent student because of the discipline and skills he was taught. There are many clubs and after school activities as well !!
