The diversity of La Quinta High School 's Activities Department reflects the diversity among our student population.
The Activities Department strives to uphold the school's mission to educate the whole person by offering a variety of co-curricular activities. These activities provide students the opportunity to grow emotionally and socially as they interact with their peers in various settings.
Students are encouraged from orientation in the summer before their freshman year to their last semester as seniors to get involved in La Quinta’s rich co-curricular life and make the most of their high school career. Our activities program is over 13 years strong and continues to evolve annually to meet the changing needs of the community.

Over ninety percent of La Quinta High School graduates pursue higher education. Over fifty-five percent of each graduation class enrolls directly in four year colleges and approximately thirty-five percent in Community Colleges.
A rigorous program is offered to qualified students through honors and advanced placement courses in the following subject area: English, Foreign Language, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. More than two hundred students participate in the Advanced Placement Program and may qualify for college credit through examination in May each year. The goal of the academic program at La Quinta High School is to prepare students to meet the challenges of their future endeavors.
We have selected professional
educators who have made reputations for themselves as being dedicated
to helping students realize their full academic and personal potential.
A student’s positive self-esteem is the first step toward a successful
school experience. We want to provide an environment where a student
can bond with the school and staff. We offer many academic pathways
to success for our students, including IB, AVID, Health and Public Service
Academies, an Education Pathway, and a Culinary Arts Institute.
Our counselors are prepared
to help students in a variety of ways and are a positive resource for
both students and parents. We have an IB Coordinator, an MYP Coordinator,
and an AVID Coordinator who also work closely with the students and
families who are involved in those programs. The administration is always
ready to sit down with students and parents to discuss concerns, and
open communication between home and the school in encouraged. To see
what programs each administrator is responsible for and how to contact
them please visit the
I invite you to become involved
in the school either through student activities or our parent advisory
committees. I hope that you will work hard with us and enjoy the benefits
of a “cutting edge” comprehensive high school program.
