The state should come in and take over all the teachers and the administration cares about is there paycheck they don't care about if the kids get there diploma or not shame on them.

It's a pretty good school minus how some people dress inappropriately. I wish that the students would be more polite to one another as well.

As a former student and sibling to current ones I am seriously disappointed with the current administration telling its teachers to avoid new methods when I attended teachers encouraged use to try new methods and techniques as long as we retained the information

This school is horrible. If I had somewhere else to send my children I would move them in a heartbeat. It is the only high school in the area. The only thing this school (principal) cares about is test scores and funding. They don't care what the parents or the students think. The actual education of the children does not conern the principal at all.

I am a former teacher who worked at this school for four years, and I very much regret leaving. The faculty boast many super-stars who rise above the call of duty in trying to prepare small town kids for the wider world. Ms. Steiner, Mr. Ammerman, and Mr. Pelicano are just a few of the outstanding teachers at PVHS. The kids are great there, too. They are influenced by all the culture of S. Cali, so a lot of them walk and talk tough, but if one looks deeper, even the worst of the 'bad kids' possess a small-town innocence that is quite comical for how contrary it is to first impressions. The only bad thing about PVHS is that it is subject to the whimsy of a fickle and reactionary school board who replace the principal, superintendent, or curriculum in accordance with the latest 'good ideas' from the loudest parents.

As a former graduate of this high school, I feel as though students receive a quality education in a small-town atmosphere not available elsewhere. More PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT would be great, as most parents seem to think it is the job of the classroom teacher to raise their kid for them. It's a great school with great staff!

This school is the only high school in town so in comparison to all the others it's great! On the other hand there's a lot of problems within the school. As a former student I know that a lot of the staff play favorites so if you want your kids to learn how to be independant its a great school cause if they don't fit the statistic then they'll have to do for themselves.

I think the school is going in the right direction but still needs a lot of work. If parents, teachers and administration would work more together I think we could have a great school. But there lies the problem we don't work together because we think we know best. Parents think there kids are perfect and they don't do anything wrong. Teacher s stereo type the students and the administrators worry about money.

Palo Verde High School is a quaint little school in the middle of nowhere to be honest. It is a good school considering it is in a small town and have no choice of other schools to attend.

AP programs are very good. I felt well prepared for college thanks to Mr. Amerman, Mrs. Steiner and Mr. Pelicano. Sports need some help. The campus is currently under construction, however there are plans to completely redo the track/football field and stadium that sounds phenoomeonal!

This school has made some improvement and the teachers as well have been trying to make the classes fun. Test scores have raised since last years. The kids are getting along more and is alot better since the 90's. So I think its a great school for kids to study at. There is even help after school. So this school has improved since last years.

This school other than athletics needs alot of work. Any resident of Blythe can qualify as a substitute teacher. The teachers themselves are extremely boring and really dont seem to want to be there. Please go somewhere else.

Anybody with school age children should carefully check out the schools before moving to Blythe. If you want the best education for your children I urge you to consider a different town. When my children attended in the 90s I thought the schools were bad. The test scores, sadly, show insufficient improvement to justify allowing your child to attend.
