• LOGO Quest Academy was created to:

    • Challenge educational attitudes 
    • Promote student voice
    • Develop leadership skills 
    • Encourage active participation in school activities
    • Lead a pathway towards AP classes

    Quest teachers incorporate the "hands on" approach. Teachers understand the importance of modelling and scaffolding their instruction. Students are provided with needed supports to assist with academic success. Students write together in their classes and spend time brainstorming and discussing ideas with their peers. Teachers allot class time to help students complete assignments and tasks.

    Literacy is the common thread between all Quest classes. Students learn how to make personal and world connections to texts in their Honors English classes. In AP World History class, students learn how to annotate challenging questions and deconstruct prompts. Students also learn how to create arguments and justify their responses in their math classes. In Chemistry, students are taught how to write lab experiments in full, descriptive essays. Lastly, students are taught executive skills like time management, goal planning, and organization in their Personal Development class to help navigate through high school. Indeed, reading, writing, speaking, and cognitive skills are quite apparent throughout all Quest courses.

    Outside of Quest, students are exposed to social, educational, and cultural activities. Students attend high conferences, participate in community service (help build leadership skills), and guest speaker visits are embedded in the program.
