We love Quest! Our son been here for 5 years and will soon move on to their middle school program. Quest is a breath of fresh air where curiosity is encouraged and critical thinking skills are developed. Teachers and administration are top notch and truly care about the children. Music, art, PE, Spanish as well as after-school programs like track, Robotics and surfing round out the excellent opportunities for student development at this school.

Quest Montessori is an outstanding school! The teachers and administration have really gotten to know our children well, and truly care about each child as an individual. Our children grow each day both socially/ emotionally and academically. They love coming to school and have made wonderful lifelong friendships. We truly feel that Quest is our second home. This school is amazing!

Quest has continued to exceed our expectations every single year for the past 7 years! The wonderful staff and the highly trained teachers are dedicated to providing an exceptional environment for learning and growth. Our son and daughter are thriving academically and gaining the skills and confidence to take appropriate risks, learn from their mistakes, and become independent thinkers who are guided by a strong moral compass. But what we love most about Quest is that it provides each student a safe place where they are seen, heard, and understood for who they truly are at their core and that makes all the difference in a child`s life.

Our children have gone through the toddler, primary, and lower elementary programs at Quest. It is an absolutely wonderful school! We really like the Montessori approach at Quest. It's amazing to see our children blossoming into independent, thoughtful, passionate learners who are SO excited to go to school every day. The teachers are excellent - dedicated, caring, and knowledgeable. Tuition is very reasonable compared to some of the other private schools in the area, and both the indoor and outdoor spaces at the school are lovely. Highly recommend!

Our child is in their 4th year at this school and it has exceeded all expectations. The students are taught to think and be independent in everything they do. They are challenged and encouraged at every turn. We couldn't be happier with the outstanding quality of the education at Quest. The teachers and staff are incredibly caring and involved, it feels like a family. The building and grounds are top notch and they are continually adding improvements like the new greenhouse and the beautiful multi-purpose room. As parents we feel we are heard and included in our child's education. We are forever thankful for finding Quest and for the fantastic education our child is receiving.

Quest is a top notch school dedicated to conscious education. We are so pleased to be a part of this wonderful school. The staff is so passionate and enjoys working there and it really shows! Our son is getting a great education while at the same time LOVING it! That is so important to us as I did not love school growing up. Since we spend so much of our lives in school it only makes sense that we should enjoy it and learning should be fun. They do that at Quest!

We absolutely love Quest. The teacher and staff are spectacular. They love what they do and it shows. Our son actually looks forward to school imagine that concept. My wife and I wish we felt the same way when we were younger. So blessed to be able to provide this education for our son. The investment in his education and well being is so worth it. We did not know that much about Montessori schools before looking into Quest but it really just makes sense. The kids enjoy learning, become independent and so helpful to. We could not be more pleased with Quest and highly recommend it. It is a very conscious school from the snacks to the safe cleaning chemicals they use. Everything is wonderful!

Quest is the most amazing school, and community. My two children have been at Quest for the last 7 years in the Elementary and Middle School program and it has exceeded our every expectation. They are happy, curious, cared for and engaged. They are constantly tackling new challenges and exploring the curriculum in unique ways. My middle schooler is being prepared for the high school workload and experience in a deliberate and thoughtful manner and has developed a keen awareness of who she is, and how she learns. This knowledge, paired with her routine experience of working in groups, research and presenting, and working with adults in a variety of ways has her leaps and bounds ahead of her peers in traditional programs. Its a phenomenal school, we are so lucky to have found it.

We are a new family to the Quest Children's House. We are 4-weeks into the school year and the experience has been nothing short of fantastic. We''ve been working with the Quest community since April of 2012, when we began exploring new options for our daughter's education. From the onset, Mike, Paul, Pam and the rest of the Quest community have been not only warm and welcoming, but also open to answer all of our questions as we transitioned into the Montessori philosophy for our daughter's education. Jane and Jessica in the Children's House are kind, welcoming and calming which has made the transition for our daughter seamless and rewarding. We envision a long future with the Quest Community and we are thrilled to now be part of this community. In closing, one of the highlights for us and our daughter is starting the morning being greeted by the staff. There is nothing more authentic and welcoming then being greeted at the start of your day by the Quest family!
