Welcome to our classroom website!

My name is Patrick Kruchten and you've navigated to our classroom website.  

Our school, QUEST Elementary School, is located in the town of Hilton, NY, a small town about 20 minutes west of Rochester, NY.  

This my 31st year of teaching.  I have proudly taught in Hilton since the fall of 1988, teaching at Northwood Elementary, then Village Elemenary, and now QUEST Elementary.

QUEST is a multiage, International Baccalaureate, school of choice.  We are part of the Hilton Central School District and have students in our school from preschool to age 12. Our classrooms are inclusive classrooms, meaning students with special needs receive their support services right in the classroom.  

My classroom is an intermediate classroom, the final two years before the end of elementary school.  My students are typically aged 10-12, and spend two years in my classroom.
