tne BEST Music and Arts program in the valley! thanks to them one daughter recieved enough scholarships to attend a top university. (the arts program made the difference as ALL the students at her school had a 4.0 or better) she graduates this May & without what PSHS had to offer she would Not have had that opportunity. THE ARTS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. Music enhances all math skills. i highly Recommend this school program
We are thinking of having our son attend PSHS in 2 years (he's now a 7th grader) & are interested in hearing more about the school climate, academics, teacher-student ratio, test scores, gifted & talented programming, AP classes, pros, cons, band, sports. Basically, anything you'd like to write about. Thanks, P.S. We rated this school average only because we do not much about it.
Excuse you, but there were some rotten students from James Workman, too. Not most of them were from Raymond Cree.
It is necessary to make a statement about the previous comment. Not ALL the students make these claims. Furthermore, "english" is spelled with a capital E, the last time I read this. Mr. Daucher teaches English to freshman. It is a FACT that there were students in his class who were not well-behaved. Frankly speaking, they were rotten and received better treatment than they deserved. Mr. Daucher put up with a lot from some of these students. Mr. Daucher is well-organized, polished, and professional. Most of the good students went to James Workman; the rotten ones were from Raymond Cree.
Great school awesome academics, however there is one bad apple that ruins the whole reputation of the school. Jeffrey Daucher, he teaches english at the school and is one of the most unprofessional teachers I have dealt with, my friends and family that have children in his class also agree. He wasnt teaching here last year. All the students claim he sits in class and talks the whole time about his personal life. something needs to be done otherwise its a really great school.
THE best music program in a high school in riverside county. Excellent arts program- without them the school would be average.
i love palm springs high school because of the academics and the friends there
I really love the school, and the parent and teacher support, I have one out and two still in Palm Springs and happy to say all are doing great!
I love the diversity that our school represents. We have all colors, races, religions
Not only am i going to brag about Palm Springs High School because it is the high school that i attend, but even if I want to another high school, I would still be able to notice what an amazing school it is. Being the ASB president, I have come to know the school backwards and forwards and it has only allowed me to love it more. PSHS has amazing programs, school spirit, a wonderful and safe campus and a great staff. They push us to excel in academics and that has only made everyone better. I am proud everyday to say that I am a Palm Springs High School student.
The athletics are wonderful and the care and concern of the Guidance Counselors are all terrific especially Mr. Mathis.
They are organized, work hard to keep the campus safe, and consistentely strive to be the very best. My daughter just graduated and she got a great education there. I want other children to receive the same stellar education thaqt my child did.
I am a sophomore who now attends CCHS and i went to PSHS fore my freshmen year. I was forced to leave and i really regret doing so. The sports were great, teachers were fun and helpful, security was dependable, and students were goal oriented and not afraid to put in the extra work. Not to mention that it is a beautiful campus that is surrounded by panoramic mountain views. The 'Spirit of the Sands' Band is talented and the school has a great Arts program. I truly believe it is one of the best public schools in the Desert.
Not an especially good leader. There are many exceptionally fine teachers at PSHS, and an unfortunately large number of teachers who are technically qualified but very poor teachers and role models. Poor communication.
I attended Palm Springs High School and out of all of the schools in the Palm Springs area, I know that this school has the least amount of drug problems and some of the best teachers in the Valley. I have since gone on to obtain my Bacholers degree and I know that this is because of the wonderful teachers of Palm Springs High School.
