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.

Pool Information

POOL INFORMATION: The east parking lot is closed for construction. Pool patrons should utilize the south parking lot and go to door “S” for swimming lessons. Please avoid parking along the curb next to the school as buses will be using that area for summer school.

Parents are reminded that per pool procedure, if you did not hear from us, you received your first choice in swimming lesson time. Swimmers will be directed to team rooms to change and shower. If parents wish to watch lessons, they will proceed to the east hallway and enter the pool through the east entrance to the bleachers. Thank you for your attention to these logistics!

2016 Graduation


2016 RHS/LCHS Graduates

Our 2016 RHS/LCHS Graduates had a walk down memory lane today as they visited each of the elementary schools and the middle school for a final time as a Ripon student. The graduates rode on a bus and dodged rain as they entered each building to find the hallways lined with applauding students and staff. This is what it's all about. Our staff at RASD have this goal for each student from their first day of Kindergarten! Congratulations 2016 graduates we are thrilled for your achievements! (See more photos on Facebook)
