To accommodate the move to a 9-12 high school,  “more classrooms were needed [to house the] new staff and several hundred new students,” Principal Danielle Arnold said.  The cafeteria also had to be expanded.

Although there were small problems at the beginning of the school year, those have since been fixed.

The amount of new students attending QHS had a significant impact on students.

Samantha Boyer, sophomore, said the beginning of the school year was unsettling due to the amount of people; however, within a few months, everything started to calm down.

Sativa Anders, senior, also had to adjust to the changes.  “Having so many people in a lunch period, it’s crowded and I am not used to sitting elbow to elbow with somebody,” she said.  She also noted that the tables were always rearranged until the staff found a way that worked.

Arnold said that even though the changes were substantial, they were necessary and positively impact staff and students.

“Now that everyone [is] used to it, I think it was for the better,” Jake Inman, senior, said.

Construction was finally finished a week before school started.  Changes were approved on November 4, 2014.
