Quaker Valley High School Reviews

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.

Throughout my journey of education Quaker Valley School District nourished me every step of the way. This school is very academically demanding due to the belief that every student is capable of achieving anything to the highest level. Although the workload is sometimes abundant, students learn time management and hard work as a result. Given that the student body is relatively small students and teachers are able to make strong connections. As for the athletics, Quaker Valley encourages teamwork and teaches the athletes sportsmanlike conduct. By creating a nurturing environment all students are accepted thus adversity is celebrated and encouraged. Disabled students are well accommodated and treated as much as the other students as possible. Overall, this district is a very well rounded and gives all students necessary tools to succeed in desired future endeavors. However, the parents are sometimes too involved and try to shelter the students.
Quaker Valley High School has taught me how to make a difference in the world. The faculty are very friendly and supportive. You get to develop a personal relationship with each of your teachers and your guidance counselors are involved from the minute you start until graduation.
The student body is very supportive. Everyone is so nice at Quaker Valley and there are various clubs and programs to involve students.
The one program I like is called QV Voice, a student ambassador program whose motto is "Teens helping teens". We also have a Best Buddies program that lets the student body work with our special needs students.
