ADMISSIONS

“Although QG is not the most glamorous school that I have attended, the people who grace our grand pathways are my favorite.The standards that teachers place are high, but very achievable. When I am struggling, I know that I can always ask my teacher for help. The Dean of the departments are so knowledgeable about the subjects they teach and I will never forget the impact that some of them have had on my life. This is the most accommodating school I have ever attended. I can honestly say that despite my good grades, I would have dropped out of school if I had not found my QG family. Even on days that I dread doing school work, I never disliked coming to school. I love my friends that I have met here and the challenge of my classes. Most of all, I love the staff!” Go Stallions K. Kaplan (Class of 2015)
