School Information

La Quinta High School is located in the northern region of La Quinta and serves students in grades nine through twelve following a traditional calendar. At the beginning of the 2019-20 school year, 2535 students were enrolled, including 5.9% in special education, 5.4% qualifying for English Language Learner support, and 62.6% qualifying for free or reduced price lunch.

La Quinta High School fully embraces the privilege of being an International Baccalaureate (IB) School. At every level, the expectation is all students will be prepared to succeed in the most rigorous courses and beyond. To complement the outstanding work of the dedicated staff and IB students, LQHS offers 13 IB courses, 11 Advanced Placement (AP) courses, 11 Honors courses, four CTE programs (Public Service Academy, Medical Health Academy, Culinary Arts Institute, and Information & Communications Technology Academy), Air Force JROTC, and AVID. We believe all students can learn.

As such, we offer the necessary support needed for them to be successful. We aim to provide the best learning environment for our students. This is accomplished through a supportive board of education, talented staff members, a supportive community, and most importantly, great students.
