Overall, QHST is a good school. It focuses on sports more than clubs; however, if you and your peers show interest in an event or club COSA will try to help it come to life. The academics have improved and more AP classes are have been added. The teachers are okay, some better than others but, that is a given. The school is diverse because it has a lot of students with disabilities. Keep in mind, if you're in general education, you need to advocate for yourself and tell your teacher whether you need preferred seating or extra time. Teachers are not mind-readers and sometimes they forget since they have a lot of students, so advocating for yourself is crucial. The administration is nice when you are. In terms of college readiness, some students are ready while others fall behind. Focus on your academics and try to find a balance if you're on a team. You can become a member of Arista, get awards, or honor roll. Finally, be positive and don't stress about making friends. Good Luck!

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at this high school. It is certainly not a perfect school, but the teachers are compassionate and it is clear that they care about the students' education. The teachers work very hard and are very able to cooperate with their students to help each and every one of them succeed. My only critiques would be that at times the school can be hopelessly disorganized, and there are a few programs that the school doesn't have, like a football team or a French class. However, all things considered, it is a really great school that promotes teacher/student communication and educational success.
It was a great school chill and fun with education the guidance councilor are amazing.Friendly ppl and a lot of opportunities in sports.Small classroom with easy learning.The principal does a lot for the school.The teachers have strong work ethic and make learning easier for students. The deans are chill and nice.No fights and issues really.Gym is a nice class.There are opportunities to work in the school and earn money. School spirit week is fun and we use to have dear where we would read and do activities but now it only for 9th and 10th grade apparently communities such as Emerson,Freire, and Montessori got removed.The classes don’t give much homework it more about quality education not quantity
