Quaker Valley School District Reviews
Overall, we have been very pleased with the quality of teachers and academics at Quaker Valley. Just wish the selection process for athletic coaches would be of higher quality and find individuals who can relate well to the students. Using college interns or younger teachers would be much more appropriate than hiring cranky senior citizens who obviously have a strong disdain for teenagers and who aren't physically fit themselves. Someone who doesn't rely on favoritism, bullying and negative feedback to try to gain respect from her team. There seems to be little oversight on the quality of coaching as multiple student and parent complaints to the administration have been disregarded.
My experience with the Quaker Valley School District has only taken place from my sophomore year to my senior year. During this time, I have been able to witness some of the culture and personality surrounding Quaker Valley HS. The courses themselves are challenging in a way that holds students to a higher standard. The teachers, from what I have seen, are passionate about their lessons and are willing to help students in whatever ways possible, to an extent. However, even Quaker Valley has its flaws. My younger brother is currently a fifth grader going to Osbourne Elementary, one of the two Elementary schools within the Quaker Valley District. In the time that he's attended Osbourne, he has been repeatedly bullied, and even after our family reported this, very little was done about the incidents, discipline or prevention-wise.
Before I came here I was bullied at every school I went to. The kids just seemed to hate me at any other school. I became suicidal at one point. Then I came here. The kids are amazing and so polite, the teachers are sweet and helpful, and I'm involved in so many awesome activities. The school and students don't make me want to die, they actually make me want to live. I've never felt so happy in high school. I know that this is my last year in school with me being a senior, but I'll finish off right. I'll end on the best note at Quaker Valley High School.
