We believe student success depends on our ability to create an environment and provide the resources that foster meaningful and sustained relationships between teachers, students, parents, stakeholders and the community. Therefore, Quest has established key partnerships with community organizations, educational institutions and individuals who provide our students with invaluable exposure to the world that awaits them.
To engage the larger community and foster community partnerships, special guests and organizations frequent the school and involve students, such as the Peoria Symphony Orchestra, the Caterpillar African American Network (CAAN), the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria, Bradley University, Eureka College, Illinois Central College, the Junior League of Peoria, the Society of Women Engineers, and many others.
We look to our community partners to provide such things as:
- Mentors for individual students and small groups
- Classroom/School speakers
- Career planning
- College prep
- Job shadowing opportunities
- Volunteer opportunities
- Hands-on STEM activities
We welcome the opportunity to partner with additional businesses, organizations and individuals in the community. If you would like to become one of our community partners, please contact Dr. Nicole Wood, Executive Director, at 309-402-0030 ext. 206 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
