About Us


Welcome to Quail Run, a Utah public charter school serving students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade. Our beautiful "green" school is located in Pleasant Grove, Utah's City of Trees, and sits at the base of the American Fork Canyon. A walking, biking and horseback riding trail borders the school property on the north; and to the south, Mill Creek winds through a hundred-year-old grove of trees.

When you visit our school, you might be surprised at our unique model. Is Quail Run right for your family? Consider these key educational differences between Quail Run and other schools:

 

QUAIL RUN PHILOSOPHY

 

TRADITIONAL EDUCATION MODEL

 

 

An active education where students learn by doing; Cross-curricular projects that reinforce student-led discovery of new ideas

 

Drill and practice worksheets that bore students and waste paper

 

 

A community where multiple teachers partner as co-teachers—sharing spaces, materials and ideas

 

Single teachers working in isolated classrooms

 

 

Strong focus on all required core subjects including the arts (dance, theatre, music and visual art), science and social studies

 

Programs that ignore the essential subjects of science and fine arts

 

 

Students moving frequently to stretch both the body and the mind

 

Students sitting at desks all day long

 

 

 

Teachers respect family time; Home-to-school connections provide family activities that reinforce real-life applications of concepts taught at school

 

Busywork sent home as daily homework

 

 

 

Classrooms uniquely designed to meet the needs of specific subjects: dance, science, math, art—all "buzzing" with the sounds of hands-on learning

 

Classroom after classroom with rows of students sitting silently at their desks

 

 

Every child works with a math specialist holding a math endorsement; Grade level teachers co-teach with trained reading specialists

 

Each teacher expected to be an expert in every subject, even those they don’t enjoy or have experience with
