I have a special education student and this school has bent over backward to accomodate his needs. I'm thrilled.

My son started at QJHS this year after years in the Catholic system in Quincy. He has blossomed so far this year and is enjoying school a lot more than he has in the past. One reason is he is able to take "honors" classes, which challenge him. Also, he enjoys the fact it's a bigger campus, but still has the "teams" that make him feel part of a family.As a parent, I like the fact I can access his grades at anytime and can easily email his teachers.

Our daughter has always had to have extra help in accordance with her IEP. In the past I felt she wasn't progressing. When she came to QJHS things changed. I was pleasantly surprised how much better she is doing at QJHS. She is thriving and now on honor roll. From the time my son was there and now with my daughter I have always had positive experiences with the teachers. As far as disruptive students, we have tied our teachers hands where disciplined is involved so what do we expect. It all starts at home with teaching your children to respect authority. It is sad the large number of parents that aren't involved in their child's school life. Teaching is a thankless job.

QJHS is a very positive school that is striving to push kids to be their best and to reach their fullest potential.

This year the faculty/staff switched to a team approach. It breaks students into smaller groups to enable staff to get to know students; giving a more personal approach. My son has blossomed: he is independent, follows through on classes, homework, etc. He loves visiting with his teachers (who "treat him as an adult and not a child" - pre-teenager statement). He had no problems finding his classes and knows his way around the building. He has made some terrific friends who are in a number of his classes and meets other pals for lunch. I also like that the teachers seem approachable should we need to contact them regarding any issues. It would be nice if the administration gave a little more notice about parent institutes and other parent meetings. Right now the information is sent out via telephone the day prior. Our evening schedules do not allow that kind of flexibility as we have small children still at home. My son has mostly AP classes. He has had an issue with one general education class where the disruptive students are causing extra homework for all involved. Luckily the teacher is getting to know him and they have empathized (commiserated?) with the situation.
