School board members are providing services to the school which is illegal by Texas law. For information about the new parking lots and how much his company made off the school you need to talk to QCISD board member.

This school that i graduated from has little challenge in even the advanced classes. Since the introduction of "No Child Left Behind," this school district has suffered from teaching standardized tests rather than course curriculum. Notable activities in this school include Band, Ag programs, softball, and occasionally tennis. While these activities perform well (and in some cases extremely), others such as football is simply not up to par. For the most part the teachers are wonderful teachers but are hampered by their need for students to pass the TAKS test.

I was a previous student of Queen City, and excelled according to their standards and curriculum. However, when I moved to Wisconsin in the eighth grade, my scores had an exponential decline. I was in advanced placement courses in QC, and in Wisconsin, the regular classes prove to be more challenging. The school as a whole is a phenominal place and supportive. I however would not raise my children in the setting as I know how unprepared my children would be going to college. Their band is fantastic, their sports are well rounded, but from a scholastic perspective, they are lacking.

This school is very well in some of their activites, like band and softball. The average learning though is very low. For a 2a school they do well for themselves. They could do so much beter if the school could get more money and actually buy what they need for their students and teachers.

Queen City is a great school, much better than others in the area. They have a great band (need I mention the State Championship in marching and the TMEA?) and agriculture program (also at state level). They also have great teachers that will help with any work needed help with. I consider it a privelidge to go to such a great school.

QCHS does a good job with what they have. Personally, I was not challenged by the curriculum. I also didn't necessarily feel prepared for college when I left, but I'm not sure that a high school education in general can do that. I do know that if a student wants to succeed, there are faculty at QCHS to help him/her.

QCHS does not prepare their students for college.They are only taught the skills needed to pass the placement exams administered. They learn no real test taking or study skills needed for college level classes. Also they encourge work programs for what they consider troubled students instead of spending extra time working with the students who lack behind in classes.

The school is very poor and can't afford all the supplies that the students need. While the principle trys to run a strict school, the classroom still doesn't have much order. Overall, it's not a very good school system.

Too much emphasis placed on athletic activities and not enough time devoted to academics. The majority of solid teachers have either been run off by administration or chose to leave because they were not allowed to teach by newer methods. School board has the tendency to favor certain groups of people.

This is a typical small town school. Not a lot of choices as far as curriculum goes but an all-around good school. Sports is big here.
