Dear Blue Devil Students and Families,
Whether you are a returning 10th, 11th or 12th grader, an incoming 9th grader, or a transfer student, we would like to welcome you to Quincy High School. As you undoubtedly know, QHS transitioned from a 10-12 high school to a 9-12 high school during the 2016-2017 school year. Our freshmen are finally on our campus, and they are starting to reap the rewards a full four-year high school experience can offer. We are very excited to start the 2017-18 school year, especially now that the challenges of the transition are mostly behind us.
At Quincy High School, we take great pride in academic excellence and the many exceptional extracurricular activities and clubs. We encourage all students to get involved in something at QHS, whether it be athletics, music, a service organization, or a club. Getting involved fosters connections to school and helps build relationships between students and staff. Students who participate in an activity tend to have better attendance and grades, and they report a lot of personal satisfaction from being involved in a group or team working toward a common goal.
It is important to the faculty and staff at QHS that we prepare all our students to be ready for life after graduation. You can expect our best effort to help students succeed, and our Professional Learning Community plans to meet all student needs in a rigorous, yet nurturing, positive environment. Our expectation for students is that they accept the responsibility of working hard, take pride in our school and community, and respect the rights of others. It is important that we all (student, parents, staff) work together and communicate to help our students meet life’s challenges. Together we will do great things. Feel free to call us anytime. Have a great 2017-2018 school year!
