Quartz Hill High School Reviews

Quartz Hill overs a large selection of clubs, academics, and athletics. There is truly something for everyone there. However, most funding is put towards athletic facilities instead of much more outdated facilities such as the choir and band rooms (which haven't been remodeled since the start of the entire building, developed in the 70's). However, Quartz Hill still shows appreciation to all activities and honors most of them with awards. The social atmosphere can vary from harsh to simple minded people but the school has a lot of students so finding a friend is never too hard. Throughout my years at QHHS, I have grown to love te school for all of its opportunities and successes it has. I wouldn't want to attend any other school in the area. QH is where it's at. GO REBELS!
Review Quartz Hill High School
Quartz Hill High School gets every student involved. Every year there are a number of assemblies that give students the opportunity to engage in something extracurricular. These assemblies are very organized, fun, and are in conjunction with other organizations on campus resulting in spectacular shows. Additionally, this school has an extensive number of clubs that include the Art of Conversation Club, the Gay-Straight Alliance Club, the VEX Robotic club, and much more. Lastly, QHHS has a great ASB student leadership program that helps shape students into excellent leaders and shows members the importance of a democratic process. The extracurricular opportunities at Quartz Hill High School are great!
Attending Quartz Hill higschool all four years of my high school career was fantastic! I personally loved all the school has to offer such as sports and amazing academic programs. The teachers are amazing and will go out of their way to make sure you are on top of your work and connect on a personal level. The QH staff and faculty are also very kind and work with all problems you have. I believe QH better prepared me for my life in college now that I am attending ASU and I can't be more grateful!
