Quincy Junior/Senior High School Reviews
Quincy Jr./Sr. High School is the only high school in the small town of Quincy. With a predominant white community in rural California it feels cozy and underfunded. The teachers care deeply about the students and want to see them succeed, despite their lack of communication on course loads. The food is lacking in choices and there is always a long line to get it. The library is always stocked well. Locker placement is based on grade instead of where your classes are (which makes for heavy backpacks, running, or strategic timing). There is a surprising amount of academic choices for classes but AP classes are only available to juniors and seniors (so if we want them we have to cram them). School spirit is abundant and beating other schools in sports is a common rally point for the whole school. Kids can go across the street for food. Our dress code is unfair and unnecessarily enforced (frequent checks). We score well on testing and placement.
I’ve found Quincy Junior Senior High School to be a great school when it comes to small class sizes. You make stronger connections with your peers and the staff while receiving a decent education. The downsides to being in a small rural high school like Quincy Junior Senior High School is the smaller pool of opportunities, both curricular and extra-curricular.
It's an alright school. It has the usual high school ups and downs such as gross food and oddly organized programs. But, what makes my school tough is the lack of teacher to teacher coordination, and failure to follow curriculum guidelines. We have old, outdated books for nearly all of our classes including Biology, European History, Anatomy, and more. We could be learning so much more! Yet, despite the do-ers and go-getters in this community, it just seems closely out of reach.
