School Reviews

  • Recommended November 30, 2009 - Qda is an excellent way for families to be able to school their children at home. Their staff is awesome. They offer everything your children would get by going to a public school, from participating in sports to going on field trips. Anyone thinking on using a charter school I would greatly suggest using QDA. - Posted by Student/Alumni
