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 However, most funding is put towards athletic facilities instead of much more outdated facilities such as the choir and band rooms (which haven't been remodeled since the start of the entire building, developed in the 70's).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!
My experience at this school has been extraordinary. I was not originally going to attend this school, though I had wanted to since I heard about its reputation. For the first month of freshman year, I attended another high school, and I did not enjoy my time there, because people looked at me differently, and their attitude was not pleasant.
After that month of school, I switched over to Quartz Hill, and the very first day I felt a change. People were warm, friendly, and welcoming. I knew from the beginning that this was my school. Of course, any school has its problems, harassment is always there and teasing exists. However, it is not that big of an issue here that I have noticed; everyone tries to get along and be a part of the school, making sure everyone is included. The academics are of huge importance to the students and staff as well. They make sure everyone is on track with their assignments and understands the concepts they need to learn.
