QHS rally
Quincy Junior/Senior High School is located in Plumas County in the small, rural town of Quincy, which is situated in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The school serves 328 students in grades seven through twelve. Quincy Junior/Senior High School opened its doors in 1910 and is one of eight schools in the Plumas Unified School District. Quincy is the county seat and has a population of approximately 5500 people. It lies close to the center of a mountainous 1.2 million-acre national forest with many recreational opportunities. The economic base is closely tied to timber, with the Sierra Pacific Industries log mill and Plumas National Forest being primary employers. Local government and the educational entities (Plumas Unified School District, Plumas County Office of Education, and Feather River College) are also major employers, as well as the regional Plumas Bank, and Feather Publishing. 
The vision of the school is one in which staff, parents, community, and students work together to encourage and develop citizenship, responsibility, integrity and enthusiasm for lifelong learning. The mission of the school is to inspire personal achievement in learning and citizenship for all students, every day. To that end, QJSHS offers a solid college preparatory curriculum, including six Advanced Placement classes. A successful vocational program includes auto shop, culinary arts, digital academy, pastry, gardening, welding, and yearbook. The 7th-grade curriculum offers a “school within a school” with block scheduling in science/math and social studies/English. The junior high electives consist of art, culinary arts, Spanish, band, auto shop, computer science, CTE classes, and music appreciation.
