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!
Quartz Hill High School is pretty much the best high school in the Antelope Valley, but that's not saying much. There are many AP and honors courses, as well as a bare-bones IB program. However, while there are definitely wonderful teachers, they are few and far in between the mass of B level characters. Quite a few failed PHD's and college professor want-to-be's that don't know how to teach but talk and walk like they do. If your student know's his or her way around, he or she can definitely make an impression on tier 1 schools (Ivey League, Stanford, MIT, etc.) by the senior year, but the long journey to that end is tedious and difficult.
