Who Are We
Quality Education Institute of Durham is a private elementary school in Southeast Durham. QEI was established in 1998 and still produces an educational experience like no other. The growth of the school is attributed to the success of students in the classroom and the satisfaction of parents who choose to enroll their children in the school’s challenging and rewarding curriculum
After the submission there will be a scheduled assessment with the student and the entering grade level teacher. The teacher will then meet with the school administrator to determine the best fit for the student and you will be contacted within the week about possible placement.
We use Memberhub to keep our families informed. Important information and announcements about inclement weather, policy changes and engagement opportunities are all found here.
QEI Durham depends on the generosity of our community to provide a quality education to our students. This includes donations and participation at our fundraising events.
“My son has attended QEI for 2 years. He started in the K-4 class and is now in Kindergarten. In his previous school, he was consistently disruptive in class and was in trouble often for hitting and biting other children. He was doing poor quality work and could not even color within the lines. Additionally, he mumbled his words and few students or staff could understand him. We heard about the great things QEI was doing for children and we pulled him out of his old school and enrolled him in QEI after the school year started. My son’s behavior improved immediately, as the QEI staff told him and reinforced to him constantly what they expected of him in a loving and nurturing way. Within a month the quality of his work drastically improved. When he brought home his first coloring assignment which was done neatly and within the lines (for the most part), his father swore that some other child had done the work and he took it and put his name on it. The QEI teachers and afterschool staff made it a point to have him slow his speech and talk slowly. Everyone now comments on how much his speech has improved. This is only one example of a school that really cares about its children.”
