    "I attended this school from K2-5 and I have to say, I thank this school for where I am right now. The teachers are very nice and caring, and I felt like family at this place for 6 years. The school is separated into 2 schools, the elementary and upper(middle/high school). Most of the students from the elementary school move on to the Upper. I can't say much about my JQUS experience compared to my JQES experience since I attended for one year before attending an exam school."

    "My recent experiences at this small school has been nothing less than a nightmare. Too many issues to express here. My rating so far is a negative 1 star. I am afraid to send my child to this school this very day. The is reference to the JQS Middle School. My child is afraid and my experiences have been frightful."

    "There are 2 different schools The Josiah Quincy Elementary and the Josiah Quincy Upper School. I don't have experience with the JQS Upper School but the Josiah Quincy Elementary School is an excellent school! The teachers are caring, supportive and informative. They appear to work very hard from what I see in their classrooms, at school events, in the work coming home and in the progress I see with my child's learning. I found the teachers I have known there to be talented at teaching and motiving kids. They seem to understand that all kids are different and they both challenge and support. My kids looked forward to going to school every day. The school also offers great before and after school enrichment classes like sports, gymnastics, art, music, and yoga. It has Advanced Work program available to some students for grades 3,4,5 too, which is even more challenging compared to their already tough regular academic programs. It's a great school."

    "The teachers at JQES (PK - 5) work closely with the parents to ensure that the children receive the best education possible and that the learning doesn't stop at the classroom. These teachers go above and beyond for our kids. We all share the same goal of putting the children and their needs first. for this reason there is a strong parent group willing to donate their time and energy to the school as well."
