    I have two children in this school and have been greatly impressed. The principal is very involved and one in a million. The teachers are support and treat children on an individual basis. I'm impressed with the curriculum and the staff's availability for parent's concerns.

    As a parent of a child of Quailwood School I can tell you our experience and I say our because this school is not just academically excellent but very family friendly. They encourage family participation and when you walk on campus you can feel the genuine love the staff has for eachother and their students and families. They always go way beyond the 8-3 day. It is a very safe campus and they make sure it stays that way they teach values and catch the children doing good. I could go on and on but I know you will be happy if your child attends this awesome school. I had two older children who went to another school out of this district and although it was a good school it can't compare to Quailwood.

    My son has just finished kindergarten and our experience was wonderful. The faculty were wonderful and made sure he was getting the best education one could hope for. He is beginning to read and is doing math problems already. I would not trade this school for anything.

    First of all the Fruitvale School District demands excellence from their staff. As a parent of two former students a PTSA member and parent volunteer I can give you an excellent review on Quailwood Elementary School the Principal Mr. Steve Duke Teachers and Staff. The school is above and beyond outstanding. My children attended K-6. Both of my children had wonderful learning experiences. The teachers were more than happy to work one on one sent home weekly progress reports gave 100+ effort to make their education interesting fun consistent and above and beyond what you would expect etc. My children still recall all of the wonderful experiences of education the community involvement special guest speakers etc. and keep in touch with their Quailwood teachers. As a parent with many friends in many other schools I can say that my friends were always envious of our wonderful school and experiences. Quailwood encourages on campus visitors. If you have any doubts about sending your child to Quailwood I promise your doubts will disappear after your visit. Quailwood has been awarded a 'Blue Ribbon Award' and is a California Distinguished School Award Winner many times over. This is not an easy task to achieve. It takes much extreme dedication from the Administration Teaching Staff Staff parents and students. You will be truly happy with your childs experience.
