Quest Elementary School offers a dynamic, hands-on, project-based learning environment for 200 students in grades 3-5 in the Ripon Area School District. Quest students are learners who thrive in collaborative, interdisciplinary learning environments and are afforded an opportunity to delve into the exciting world of interactive, inquiry-based project learning. Their learning is enhanced through designing projects that explore personal, real-life issues which students collaboratively share with peers and teacher/facilitators. Community showcase events provide a forum for project presentations.  Autonomous charter school governance attends to the daily operations of Quest Elementary School. Parents and community members, along with educators, utilize democratic decision-making to guide the Quest Governance Council as it leads the school in its mission to benefit students, parents and the community.
