Open Quote This is an absolutely wonderful school. I have attended since my third grade year, and I am now heading in to ninth grade. It's crazy how time has flown by, but like the saying goes "time flies when you're having fun!" which is exactly what we did. We all had so much fun in our years here. I was one of the speakers at the 2014 continuation, and I must say that by the end I was in tears. At Aurora Quest, students of all religions and races, thoughts and beliefs can come together as one student body and learn together. The staff is all very sweet, the teachers are wonderful, funny, helpful and understanding with their students. If you are debating sending your child to Quest, please do. You won't regret it.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
