JQS Mission Statement 
 We seek to provide a challenging academic program that gives all students the means to meet high standards and achieve their best, to foster sound habits of mind and action, and to instill in our students such virtues as integrity, respect, and self discipline. 

JQS Bill of Rights 
 JQS takes very seriously the rights and responsibilities of each member of our school community.  When expectations are clearly articulated, everyone is better able to thrive in their academic, emotional, and physical development. Click Here to see the JQS Bill of Rights! 

JQS Curriculum 
 The JQS curriculum is developed by the JQS Instructional Leadership Team (ILT), a group of teachers and administrators dedicated to creating a nurturing learning environment for children, an effective, supported, and productive teaching environment for instructors, and  the best curriculum-based tools, resources, and programs for the entire school community. Click Here to learn more about the JQS Curriculum!

A Shining Example:

 Boston Magazine selected the Josiah Quincy School as one of the top 50 elementary schools in Massachusetts in 2005. Our students have responded to the school’s partnership for achievement. In 2005, 90 percent of Quincy 4th graders passed the English Language Arts portion of the MCAS and 87 percent passed the mathematics part. In the 2004-05 school year, the average daily student attendance rate was 97.5 percent, and 99.7 percent of children were promoted to the next grade. 

 That success has prompted the city to designate Josiah Quincy an Effective Practice School, making the school a training ground for teachers and administrators.

 Every year, the enthusiasm of our students and staff is on display in theatrical productions for a diverse collection of year-end holiday performances, and then again in early February for the Lunar New Year. From time to time, the walls are adorned with poetry and art gleaned from our classrooms. Beginning in 2011, the sounds of the JQS orchestras and choral groups can be heard in the halls outside the auditorium daily throughout the school year. Always, the halls of the Josiah Quincy School shine with the creativity and spirit of our children.
