Thirteen years later, in 2007, there are just under 3000 students at La Quinta High School and we just keep growing. More students join our ranks along with an influx of highly qualified faculty and administration. Recognized since 1999 as a California Distinguished School and the only International Baccalaureate high school in the valley, our school is renowned for its academic programs and ever-changing curriculum. It is the goal of our Principal and the administrative team to provide our students with the most up-to-date academic programs, incorporating the most modern technology and teaching methods. La Quinta High School Blackhawks soar in academics, athletics, and preparation for the future.
It is with great pleasure
that I welcome you to La Quinta High School, home of the Blackhawks,
the Coachella Valley’s first
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 administration page.
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.
