What Our Students Say

QES is a place where studying and learning isn’t a pressure, it’s not forced on you like it is in high school. The tutors never make you feel small, they interact with you, hang out with you and make everyone feel welcome.

I’ve learnt a whole lot of things at QES which I am grateful for. They are helping me get the credits I need to finish my NCEA levels.
