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.
The school overall is very good. I have learned a lot and feel very prepared for college, I have also grown close to all of my teachers, for they all take a personal interest in their students. Every day I get asked for updates about college and if there are any ways in which they could help. Although most classes are difficult, I believe it will make my college experience much easier.
