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.
Review Quaker Valley High School
Quaker Valley is an amazing school. It has challenging courses and the teachers go above and beyond for their students. There is a heavy homework load, but Quaker Valley really prepares its students for college. It is a smaller district, which is nice because the classes aren't too big. If I were to change something I would suggest that the teachers have meetings to discuss how much homework they are giving each week. Sometimes the amount of homework is too much for students to handle, especially those who play sports. I would maybe suggest finding a way to make it a little bit easier for the students, or making accommodations for those who play sports or have jobs. However, Quaker Valley has a lot to offer the students. There are many opportunities. Students can even do internships through the school.
The school is probably the best that the public school system has to offer. It's very easy to get into taking honors classes, which does encourage lots of academic competition. It is a very small school. My class was about 150 kids. However, this does discourage bullying and cliches because we all need to be friends!
