    "I am so glad that I came to this school because it is so small and close-knit. At first, it turned me off, but having just 400 students means you know so many people in your school and aren't lost in a sea of thousands of students. I love joining different clubs and singing Christmas carols in the halls before winter break. I love the concerts and the hot chocolate and cookies that come afterwards. The different events that are put together at our school make every year memorable, and I am so thankful to have come to QHSS."

    "The teachers aren't just professors - they're our friends. They assign us homework and test dates but never look away when someone is crying or upset. The teachers have never mistreated students, and they understand what it's like to be in high school and have struggles."

    "Academic wise, this school is perfect. Most of the teachers actively teach their students and challenge them. However, being a specialized high school, it was quite inconvenient that the environment, amount of teachers, and the absence of lockers were evident."

    "This school has teachers that care about you. There are not a lot of classes and school events. People are friendly and nice."
