Quaker Valley is very special. It challenges every stereotype ever created by movies and pop culture. I have never had a teacher that wasn't dedicated to their students. The staff is so friendly and caring that they seem more like friends than authority figures - they don't lose any respect from students, though. The students are hard-working, busy, and dedicated to everything they do. Most students take high level honors and AP classes, participate in sports, arts, or other extracurricular activities, and are extremely social and friendly. Our music department is highly regarded and most students are involved in some way or another. Our athletic department is very successful, most teams making it to state playoffs, and competitive, but also inclusive. Our football team just won their first state championship after being predicted to not win one game this season! I am so lucky to be a Quaker.

Where do I begin?
We came from a large excellent school in Ohio.
First the counseling department does not just administrate but cares and guides your child through example .
Second the school is student centric. Too much to write.
Third the teachers Rigorous, relevant , relationship to each student .
Fourth my son loves it.
Fifth Diversity . My son goes to school with multi millionaires all the way to many students in the lunch program. They all are polite and impressed how they all rise w the tide.
I will write another review after a year being here but as a parent it is absolutely wonderful so far !
Thank you Quaker Valley !
All of the teachers or staff that I have encountered are really quite amazing. They do their best to make sure that students understand the material and they will answer any questions that you have. They also tend to cooperate well with students, which is a valuable skill nowadays.
The content itself is very useful and in-depth, providing thorough information that is relevant to not only the topic, but today.
The atmosphere is incredibly positive and welcoming. Everyone there is also incredibly acceptive. After being there, you seem to gravitate towards where you fit in.
The classes that they offer are interesting and unique to other schools.
Overall, it's one of the best schools I've ever gone to.
