    "Palm Desert High School has been a high achieving high school for many years, receiving awards from the state and even nationally recognized services like U.S. News. It is clear that Desert Sands Unified School District and the Palm Desert High School staff strive for excellence and student success. Not only offering plenty of AP classes to choose from, including the new AP Capstone program, the school puts in effort in their sports and arts as well. The Varsity Baseball team recently played in the Dodger Stadium and placing second in the state in their division for CIF. The band has had outstanding achievements, from being one of only seven schools invited to play at UCLA, to winning valley wide competitions."

    "Palm Desert High is a wonderful university that offers the best class and most caring staff in the coachella valley. While not only being academically driven there sports program is exceptional as well. Many athletes each year acquire scholarships to the top universities in the nation like USC or UCLA."

    "Most of the teachers are nice. The biggest problem is the school is in a rich area and the kids can be snotty. It's a nice campus though."

    "Palm Desert High has a clean campus, relatively good facilities and great resources. Classes are allowed to teach in broader ways thanks to funding. It is not very diverse though."
