11 Parent Reviews for Desert Hot Springs High School

I have recently graduated in 2011 and with all my four years here I can say that the school is great. It may have gone down in fun, especially the '10-'11 year, but has gone up in education and learning wise. I will start with the BAD. This was the year that we got a new principle that treats all the ...  Read more

This school is terrible. Don't come here. I'm graduating this year but the '10-11 school year is going to be very very bad. We are losing our 4-class block schedule and many good teachers are being fired and replaced by new teachers placed by the state. Many extra-curricular classes are being cut ...  Read more

This high school has amazing programs that students can participate and be involved in. I graduated from this school two years ago and all my sucess was inspired by the staff at Desert Hot Springs High School.

I have two students who attend this school they are both in Avid and are taking AP and honors classes. I think the staff is wonderful. I would like to see more parent participation for football games especially AWAY games !

It's a good school. It happens to be a lot better than what most people think. The teachers are amazing and the campus is beautiful.

Desert Hot Springs High School is not as bad as others make it. People base schools on their sports acheivment & not academic things. This school has one of the best academic programs in this valley. So before people put down this school, be a part of it first.

Overall I'm very happy with our new little highschool. I feel for the level of money our poor town has, we are doing very well. Each year that passes our school is doing better and better.

I am a senior at DHSHS. I think that DHSHS is a good school. I feel safe at school and I feel that I am receiving a good education. The only [thing] that that needs to be improved are the extracurricular activities, not just in school but in DHS too. There is nothing to do after school. Also I don't ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
