Students don't have lockers, they must carry everything. It's messy, there's constantly garbage on campus. Most of the 11th grade Avid students (the expected "better" students) have been in Avid for 2 or more years and don't know what college they want to go to or what A-G's are. There's bullying and harassment everywhere, including the locker rooms. Fights break out often. The dress code is not enforced, girls especially don't dress appropriately (ex: cropped, see through, open-back tank tops with their bra very visible). Students grind on each other (and worse stuff) at dances, the teachers/staff just let it happen right in front of them. Students over use foul language, even more than the "acceptable" amount for teens. Students in P.E. never actually exercise, they walk around and talk and will even only "try" doing something if the coach is looking. All dances are poorly planned and made, they're in the gym, so it's already a cheesy, ugly place to start with. Parents are rarely involved in anything. Fund raising ideas and income are poor, the school barely has money for teachers, books, and computers. School buses are late and break down often. TPJHS is most of all of this too.

This is by far the best school in the Morongo Basin. They have gotten high honors for academics and athletics. The teachers are great and the staff is friendly. I have put three kids through TPHS.

The staff at this school are disgusting! They don't seem to care about their students, unless they are into sports and are part of the "in crowd". Your student is being set up to fail in life. Extremely sad. The kids are pretty decent kids, but sadly they are left behind. The counselors are not there to help the students, they are there to collect their paycheck. Your child must fill out an appointment request to speak with a counselor, there are no emergencies, they will get to it when they get to it, sometimes even a week will pass. If your child is being harrassed or bullied, the school will not do anything to protect this child.It is extremely heartbreaking that these students suffer due to neglectful staff. I finally had move my kids out of the area to give them a fair chance at an education.My advice, be involved and keep an eye out for teachers that are there to collect a paycheck!

Personally, this school is good but not great. Most of the "important" things are the sports. There are close to 40 kids in each class and if you're not someone who can actually teach themselves it can be hard. Myself personally am an advanced student except in math and it's not the schools fault but i do wish that there were teachers who knew how to teach their subject (they know it but cannot teach it well). True there is a lot of extracurriculars but like i have said before revoles around sports. Those who excel in academics do not get recognized basically ever. The dress code is not enforced which really stinks because personally i don not like seeing guys boxers and girls in shorts so short that they actually show their butts and do not cover a thing. Its not a horrible school but it could use some big improvements.

Twentynine Palms high school is the worst school ive ever seen in my life the staff does not care about the students and most of the students are very disrespectfull with a blatent disregaurd for the school rules and the staff does not enforce their rules very well the classes are large so the kids in need of help are unable to get it and the staff does not care whether or not a student passes or fails overall it is a really bad school and i would not reccomend it for any student if i could i would rate it 0 out of 5

I personally love my school. Though there are 'clicks', nearly all of the students mingle with those of other stereotypes, which a great improvement to schools i have previously attended. And if students are actually inerested in getting help, they need to take the time to ask teachers for after school help, in all of my classes there, each teacer has offered it. and after school tutoring is for the most part available. it is a safe enviornment, and the choice of success and 'freedom' rests in the students hands.

Some of the teachers area very good but the counselors leave very little to be desired unless your child is in sports or a cheerleader. Forget getting help in most areas if your child starts to struggle with a subject.

I've been attending this school for 2 years now and plan to graduate here. The only complaint that I have is that if you're failing a class, it is usually very hard with most classes to bring it back up. Besides that this school provides excellent teaching and it's relatively safe.

This school seems to care very little about enforcing their own rules.

Classes seem to still be large which eliminates time for help. After school meetings or make-up after school is near impossible to schedule. Those slipping between the cracks as far as failing do not seem to be getting the help they need. Some of the counselors are unreliable. They do not follow-up on things. Unless you're motivated,organized, and goal-oriented there you are in the 'just getting by' group. I'm looking for help and not getting it. I feel that's why the Monument school seems to be making their quota in students. Many are not making it in TPHS and excelling at Monument. What does that say?

Although there is not a strong art program at the school, there is a large selection of extracurricular activities and sports and this school has a great level of parent envolvement compared to other schools my child has attended.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
