My experience here at Quincy High School was wonderful! The staff and students are both so friendly and helpful. The sports are definitely average and they could use a stronger student government, but overall Quincy High School made my high school career worth my while.

Ever since enrolling in the Quincy Public Schools system, I have been blessed with many opportunities and experiences. Such opportunities and experiences allowed me to grow and develop into not only a great student, but also become a well-rounded, and unique individual. Along the way, I have met many influential teachers and role models, became an active member of my community, and developed friendships. Even though I am currently in my freshmen year of high school; I strongly believe that the school system that I have attended in the last 9 years have done a thorough job in providing the basic foundation of a bright future.
The people in Quincy can either be very good or very trashy. I have friends going to Harvard who take all APs and friends going to Community College who do drugs daily and couldnt care less about their lives. If you want to be a rising athlete, you have to go to a prep school but if you want a good education, you can do well because QPS offers LOTS of programs and allows you to achieve your academic goals very easily and they are strongly emphasized and supported. The faculty is great with scheduling classes and most teachers are kind. If you are a good student, you will do well but if you are not, then good luck.
