Quest Home

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.
