We live in a new millennium, in an information and communication age. Education, now more than any other time in our history, is the key for a successful future. Graduates today must have a solid, core academic education, in addition to advance studies in a wide variety of content areas. Our students must acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful and contributing members of a global society. The School Accountability Report Card is one way that we can measure our progress toward our goal of providing an outstanding education to all of our students as well as share with you information regarding our students, staff, and programs here at PDHS. Palm Desert High School is an excellent high school, characterized by:

A safe and orderly environment where students are free to pursue their dreams
A dedicated staff that is committed to providing the students with a world class education
High expectations and high achievement
Extracurricular activities accessible to all students
Parental involvement throughout the school
Respect for individual differences

The world is changing around us. In addition to an education grounded in reading, writing, and mathematics, our graduates must be able to think critically, analyze information, understand different perspectives, and learn new skills. At Palm Desert High School we accept the challenge of preparing our students for tomorrow.
