What is Mastery Learning?
Mastery Learning is an educational approach in which students must achieve mastery of a subject before moving forward to learn subsequent information about that subject; learning builds on established understanding. Students are given the time and support they need to reach mastery.
QSI is a place that really pushes teachers to take an interest in their students and really care about them as human beings.
From the moment you walk through the door what's so exciting is the fact that there's children smiling everywhere. It's a real family environment. It feels like a proper community school.
The reason I like the school is because of the teachers. They are really encouraging and they help you all the time.
