STORM Family!

Congratulations Seniors!!!!

We are so proud of your accomplishments and helping make SQHS a better place. It was truly an amazing school year.

Amazing you ask? Absolutely. Was it challenging, hard and testing? Absolutely!! As stretching as it was, our SQHS Family community came together, used our grit, fortitude, caring mantra, and we made it! Congratulations Seniors! We could not be prouder of you crossing the finish line as you wrap up your high school experience during a pandemic.

Important Senior Survey

A Message from the Department of Teaching and Learning

Dear 2021 seniors and families,

Each spring, we survey our outgoing seniors to look back at their high school experiences and look forward at plans for the future. We use the survey data to help us better understand what works well for our high school students and what we could do better.

We realize that the seniors of the class of 2021 have experienced an incredibly unusual junior spring and senior year, and we are so proud of all of you for persevering. Seniors, please take a few minutes before June 10 and complete our survey.

The survey is confidential and the results will remain anonymous.

Thank you, class of 2021! We are thinking of you and cheering you on!
