Quincy Senior High School Reviews

The thing that l liked about QHS was all of the things that it had to offer. Throughout my four years at this school their was many opportunities that were accessible to me. This school excelled in providing extra curricular activities to kids. I think having opportunities outside of class work is important. It allows one to not focus on the stressful times of high school, but moreover the fun times. Having these opportunities in a school helps peers in the school to form strong bonds and make new friendships within the student body. The only thing that I would consider changing about this school is offering more ways to get students (specifically seniors) ready for college and their future. Although the staff helps guide students in the right direction, I feel as if their is some kids who need more resources about their future and what their career path looks like. Having a class meant for college preparatory and taking college trips might be something to consider.

I like how effective they are in dealing with bullies. You can always count on the school to stand up for you if others won't. Many members of the faculty will assist you if you're struggling with something. Whether it be school or problems at home, you can count on the school to help.

I would change the way they deal with misbehaved kids. When they misbehave, they get kicked out of school for a couple days. Instead, I think the faculty should access any issues that the student may be having at home or school and work on helping them through tough situations that they could be facing. Faculty could help provide support or counseling and try to help them rather than suspending them.
My school is very unique compared to other schools, we focus a lot of music and choir. About 400 students participated in music at our school being in musicals or putting on concerts. Our school also has athletics, the biggest sports being football and basketball. Everyone usually joins in to cheer our team on the field and off the field. Our academics are someone what limited although we have lots of AP and honors classes to take. The teachers are always helpful to stay after class and help me catch up. The reason my school is 4 stars and not 5 stars is because the students arent really that welcoming and nice. I really like my school but I just didnt have a good experience like I wish I would have had.
