The rating in June is from a disgruntled parent that no longer has any kids in the system. 62 seniors earned over 2 million in scholarships in 2012 as compared to very few in surrounding schools. QISD offers a free associate's degree to those kids who travel that track through a partnership with Paris Junior College. Students may also obtain a Vet Tech or Pharmacy Tech license in addition to Cosmetology and Auto Tech. 16 career options are available. The administration is providing options for students...many more options than surrounding school districts. Students are excelling in fine arts and athletics like never before. If a parent will work with teachers and administrators when an issue arises, usually a comprimise can be found.
Horrible School system, the entire district.. The administration care about taking care of there own much more than the edcation of the of the students they are paid to educate. Cronyism at its max while district maintains its "academically uneceptable" rating from the state.
Seems more sports oriented than full academic. Sports are good for healthy bodies, but more focus on academics and creative or other electives needed. Discipline in electives is lacking as well. Several plays were previously canceled because of poor student attendance to meetings after having signed up.
