Quincy Upper School Reviews
The IB curriculum is not understood by some teachers and most students. Students here don't receive many resources to help them through the IB program and therefore barely anyone ever receives the IB diploma, even if they wanted to. Student body has no school spirit, there is oftentimes no school nurse available, bathrooms are not easily accessible, the building is not handicap accessible, no gym, and the building is actually falling apart. However, most teachers and other staff are amazing and certain IB classes are engaging. The IB exams and world conferences are made affordable for students (free), and the school is in a great location. The school is small so nearly everyone knows each other.
My overall experience at Josiah Quincy Upper School is really nice. Although we are a small school, I know almost everyone in my grade. The teachers here are really nice and when you are in need of help they're happy to help. The school building overall is really old but it is still a great community.
the school is okay, school lunch is not good. In my opinion, my experience with the school has been alright but it can be so much better. The students are always loud in the hallway and school is not like an ideal high school you would always imagine.the lesson they tech are not college ideal and not a school for college readiness
