Quincy High School Reviews
When I first arrived at QHS I was very impressed. The flashy new building and fun vocational options made it seem like a great school! However, now that I'm in my senior year I have seen the faults of my school. First of all, the leaders of the school have a tendency to sweep things under the rug. There is little effort from deans and guidance counselors to actually make the school a better place. In addition, the vocational classed lack recourses and experienced teachers. Therefore, students do not receive the opportunities that kids from other tech schools do. Lastly, I'd like to point out the lack of togetherness in the atmosphere of Quincy High. There is very few events that brings the school together, and the rallies are sad and boring. In addition, although bullying is rare, there is not a friendly nature in the halls of QHS. Students are expected to worry about themselves. A 'hello' in the hall is a rare occurrence if you don't already know each other.

The population of students is highly diverse, so you will meet a lot of kids coming from so many different backgrounds. Anyone will find a friend at Quincy High School.
Quincy High School is not just another high school. Although it does have its cons, what high school doesn't? The technical majors are amazing and give students a leg up when entering the work force. I majored in Healthcare Technology, earned my CNA license while in High School and I am not working on getting my RN license. Without Quincy High I would not know what major I would have liked to pursue in College and I definitely would not have had the opportunities that I have had due to the experience I gained while attending this high school. So thank you Quincy High!
