Quartz Hill was an excellent academic experience for my daughter. They are great about campus security and student involvement in sports and government. Teachers are motivated, personal and professional. My child particpated in swim team, student government, and cheerleading. She moved on to UCSB/biology without difficulty and I am very proud of her. Quartz Hill teachers and staff contributed greatly to her success. Although the physical buildings are spartan and old, don't let the looks fool you. Best High School in the Antelope Valley, both for acamdemics and sports. You won't regret having your child attend there.
