    "This school is way overcrowded with 3000 students and there is people traffic when you're just trying to get to your next class. And again with that classes are overcrowded as well and it's hard on the teachers when there are so many students. The IB program is pretty much a joke since it's so much work on a student and most colleges don't even look at it anyway. Athletics are pretty good but it is sad that there isn't that much school spirit. Also the location of the school is horrible since there is traffic going into and leaving school. I had to wait 20 minutes in the school parking lot IN THE HEAT just to leave. You pretty much have to run to your car if you want to leave early. And the size of the school definitely doesn't accommodate 3000 people. Also I don't know why schools out here are outdoors when it gets like 100+ degrees some days and we can't even use the pool. So the only people giving this school good ratings are parents that wouldn't know any better since they aren't the ones that go to this school."

    "This school is excellent, if you want your child to have an education! Not all the schools are the same nowadays. The teachers are great, well mine were anyways. They made class fun with stories, and jokes about themselves.But I noticed that this year we have more freshman.We have over 2,700 students this year which is more then others. The only thing I would change is getting another bus at least because it is packed 3 to a seat.Students will short cut just to not get an end seat.Last year it was the same everybody ran up to get a seat like if it was a limo or something. haha i know that's what people thought. But with budget cut and stuff I know we can't get it but in the future try considering that. but overall the best school here!! Love my school!!"

    "La Quinta High School is a Great School, very competative and more colleges accept those kids, believe it or not, because of their IB program."
