On Academics: Quartz Hill offers the IB program, AP classes, and Honors classes, and I believe that is more than what other schools in the area offer. The workload is tough and sometimes it took me hours and hours to complete my homework from my AP and Honors classes. I think it worth it though to get A's and recognized by colleges.

On Overall Experience: Quartz Hill was great and I'm glad I got to go to this school. I met some very good friends there that always brought out the best in me. Teachers too. The variety of clubs and activites seem endless, and the assemblies some clubs or ASB put on were very fun! I feel Quartz Hill prepared me a little more than enough for college and the rest of my life.

On Resources & Facilities: The library and computer lab has computers and printers if you need to work on essays and projects, but they don't really tell studednts in advance if they are going to close for a day or two.
