Quartz Hill Elementary
Quartz Hill Elementary School is one of thirteen schools in the Westside Union School District located on the Westsern portion of the Antelope Valley. The staff, parents, and students of the school are committed to a highly structured, standards based educational experience for all students. In addition to academic excellence, the school strives to develop good character in all students by teaching and modeling what it means to be trustworthy, responsible, fair, honest, and compassionate.
The school currently serves approximately 850 students in grades transitional kindergarten through sixth. Quartz Hill Elementary is a walking school, with busing only available to transport students with special needs. A state-funded Special Education preschool for Westside students is also housed on the Quartz Hill Elementary Campus.
Even though Quartz Hill Elementary is an old school it remains a safe, clean, and well-maintained campus. The last time the school had remodernization was in 1989. The school has beautiful established trees that border most sides of the playground. The playground and playground equipment meet the needs of primary and upper grade students. All playgrounds received modernization in the fall of 2003. Students in our ecology club also raised money to have a serenity garden added to the campus.
The school has a cafeteria, office, staff workroom, staff lounge, library, and computer lab. Every classroom has at least three computers which have Internet capabilities.
The YMCA has a portable building located on the east side of the school. The YMCA works with the district to provide before and after school child care for parents.
