Mission Statement

"Palm Springs High School is committed to preparing all students to be productive, responsible individuals,  and lifelong learners, by providing for their intellectual, personal and career development."

Palm Springs High School is a four-year comprehensive high school with a diverse student population of 2,100 and over 85 staff members. On a 52 acre site, it is located just 100 miles east of Los Angeles.  The students enjoy a diversity of outdoor activities and intramural sports year-round as the temperature rarely dips  below the sixties.

Students, in pursuit of academic excellence, have the opportunity to participate in an extended assortment of activities designed to encourage the development of minds, the search for personal discovery, and growth through creative expression.

Having our students consistently achieve at the highest levels of hon-or on annual examinations has been a product of our instructional program. Yearly, we are home to numerous Nation-al Merit Scholars.

Since the staff is familiar with the merits of advanced planning, we believe that high school is the beginning of a career. In addition to selecting from electives such as classes designed to introduce students to particular fields, students enjoy the unique opportunity to reach out into the community through a variety of  job-shadowing programs which link the school with the diverse professional re-sources available in this unique location. This program allows students to supplement their classroom learning with practical experience and onsite training in all fields ranging from hotel management to the Arts to medicine. Our students flourish because they are open to the joys of discovery and are ready to grasp the range of opportunities offered
