Quakertown Community Senior High School Reviews

I graduated last spring and feel satisfied with how my high school career went, and feel it prepared me for the future. Every teacher I had cared for the students and wanted the best for them. The education aspect was made fun of a lot by the students, but honestly qtown provides a really good education and helps most everyone learn the basics to succeed. The best, in school, times of high school, were definitely the football games, dances, sports, and extracurriculars. They were always fun to participate in and bonding experiences for each class. Other than a few bad eggs that appear in each grade, the students provide a caring and supportive environment for each other. I loved my class (2018 woot woot) and will forever remember our times in high school together as the future comes forth. LONG LIVE THE BLUE AND WHITE!

Overall, Quakertown is a good school. It has good academics, a good atmosphere, and decent sports (for the most part). Football games are a ton of fun and the school has been recognized in the past for its school spirit on Pa Prep Live. At the moment, AP classes are extremely encouraged and practically forced upon students. This causes some students to take too many courses that they can't handle and feel stressed as a result. I recommend choosing courses that you know you can handle and enjoy in order to make the most of your experience here. Moreover, joining clubs and sports is a great way to get involved and make friends, so find what interests you and participate!
Quakertown High School provided adequate education; moreover, some teachers made the experience worthwhile, which is why this school gets four stars rather than three. Most of the staff were inviting and nice; however, the problem resides in the administration. Any bullying problems were overlooked while small, irrelevant problems were investigated. Also, the lack of freedom as a high school student was irritating. Although they expanded the locations where students could eat lunch, they were still stringent in their policies. Nonetheless, Quakertown high school was a nice school.
