Principal's Message

  • Michelle A. Laurent

    Greetings Quest Faculty and staff,

    It is with sincere pleasure that I extend to you a heartfelt welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am thrilled to be back and eager to serve you. This is going to be an amazing school year. I hope each of you have enjoyed a wonderful summer.

    Despite minor inconveniences and disruptions to the continuity of our building, this year brings about many promising opportunities to build upon the initiatives and accomplishments of last school year. According to the 2022 Florida Standards Alternate Assessment given to students in grades 3-10, The Quest Center received a Maintaining School Improvement Rating, 45% of our students tested made learning gains. Although we are proud of the hard work it took to receive a Maintaining Rating, this year we are aiming for a Commendable School Improvement Rating, which requires 50% of our students testing to make learning gain, the highest rating for Center Schools.

    As we begin this new journey, we are challenged to strengthen our efforts to make a difference in the lives of our students. Our array of talents, as a family, has far-reaching effects toward enhancing a rich, stimulating, and nurturing learning environment for our fabulous students.

    In preparing for the return of students and families, I have developed a theme for the 2022-2023 school year – Rolling Beyond Compliance to Engagement, through relationships, grace, and respect! I highly encourage each of you to continue the passion and commitment toward your partnership with The Quest faculty, staff, and administration by getting involved. Our spirit of positive TEAMWORK will be the key to our success in the 2022-2023 school year.
