    "An amazing small school where everyone knows and learns from each other. With amazing connections and teachers, a student can have a community that will remain a special part of their lives."

    "QHSS is a specialized High School and needs more funding and more space for the school. The one floor that we have creates a small and friendly space for the students, but I think more funding can go a long way."

    "It is an excellent high school that prepares you well for college! The teachers are all friendly. The students become family because of the small class-size and amicable environment."

    "Super great school and amazing teachers. It's just that the opportunities and resources are kinda limited due to the small size of the school and little funding."

    "QHSS has amazing teachers, who legitimately care about you and your grades. The dean (who also teaches Global History and AP World) is extraordinarily kind, and the guidance counselors are always willing to help. If there is one downside to this school, it has to be the lack of extracurricular activities (i.e. sports teams). There is no basketball team, no track team, and no volleyball team, and I highly doubt there would be one in the next couple years (because how York College has a vendetta against our school)."
