Principal's Message



Quartz Hill Students and Families, 

It is with great excitement that I write to you as I start my second year as the Principal of Quartz Hill High School.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead such an outstanding school, with great students, families, staff, and community.

As we begin the 2023-2024 school year, we look forward to bringing back our current students and welcoming the Class of 2027. Our outstanding faculty has worked hard and looks forward to bringing exceptional educational experiences. We encourage all students to become involved in our various campus activities from sports events to ASB led activities to club activities. Quartz Hill has a strong tradition of academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. We strive to ensure that all students are able to take full advantage of the educational opportunities and activities that help them grow into strong and responsible adults. We hope that our students take advantage of the opportunities our school has to offer. I look forward to the great things to come in the 2023-2024 year. 

This year we will continue with the start time of 8:45 am and end time of 3:40 PM. This year every Tuesday will be a Flex Day with school ending at 2:50pm. To help ensure we maintain a safe campus, students will be required to have a current Quartz Hill ID to enter the campus each morning and for other events on campus. Students do not need to wear their ID all day but it must be on their person all day.  This will be part of our continued security procedures. 

Take a moment to mark your calendars for our Back-to-School Night that will be held on September 6th at 6:00 pm. We encourage students and families to attend the event to meet the faculty and staff on campus.
