La Quinta High School Reviews
Worst school ever.
I'm a parent of a former student here. I would not suggest this school for anyone. The Vietnamese liaison treats parents very disrespectfully. When I transferred my child to this school, she eventually became for depressed. She told me that the "higher clubs" at the school are very biased as to who they would like to be in their club. I'm glad my daughter is not attending this school. She was so miserable there. She's much much more happy now that she's away from this place.
It's a great school. It's not that rich of a school, though. The faculty there was great when i attended there. I heard that the test scores at that was is constantly going up, except for this year.
