Principal's Message



Dear Quail Summit Community,                                                                                                             

As principal of Quail Summit Elementary School, it is my great pleasure to welcome you all to the 2021-2022 school year. I am very excited to begin my 5th year as part of the  Quail Summit family and leading a “school with a heart”. We are looking forward to a great school year and have wonderful activities and learning experiences planned for your child. 

We realize that returning to campus will have some challenges, but we have prepared throughout the summer for this possibility.  Our staff has worked hard to create  lessons and learning opportunities that will engage your students and meet the grade level standards.

Our students will continue the fast pace of learning to achieve academic success in all curriculum areas, they will soar to higher levels of understanding, and they will have a strong foundation that will last them throughout their schooling and beyond. Quail Summit will continue its rich history of developing the whole child- academically, socially, and emotionally.  Our focus will be on providing each child with new challenges that will result in a rewarding school experience.

Quail Summit will continue to integrate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, & mathematics) with our very own H.E.A.R.T.S. (humanities, engineering, arts, reading, technology, science & math) vision and implementation.  Our Quail Summit staff will work closely with our community club, district leaders and Diamond Bar community to provide the students with a hands-on educational experience. We will continue our work with Project Lead the Way and TEAL (Technology Enhanced Arts Learning).  Through H.E.A.R.T.S. we are empowering students to use their knowledge and skills to problem solve, to innovate, and to pursue their passions and interests. Our vision for Quail Summit is to integrate student learning with critical thinking, collaboration, problem solving and imagining possibilities through the implementation of STEAM in our curriculum.


Quail Summit has receive many recognitions throughout the years:

  • 2018 California Gold Ribbon Award for our model practice in school-wide intervention and enrichment.  
  • 2015, 2017 & 2018 California Business for Education Excellence – Honor Roll
  • 2014  California Distinguished Award
  • 2007 National Blue Ribbon Award


The work that has been done thus far at Quail Summit has set the foundation for future successes for our students. It is our goal to build upon our successes. We will strive to help develop our students into global citizens who are academically prepared, socially proficient, and emotionally secure through their active participation and donation of time and resources.  Our teachers and staff truly appreciate the support and help they receive from our parent community. We look forward to building on our current relationships with our families, as well as, getting to know our new families.

I look forward to a fabulous year.
