16 Parent Reviews for La Quinta Middle School

I am a former student from this school and after reading the other reviews I agree. I remember even as a 13-year old student complaint to the principle about his staff. Not to long ago I read headlines about the former Vice principle involved with a 14-year old boy. Her name is Christine Camera and ...  Read more

We are very pleased with the school and teachers. There is a great sense of school pride and most teachers seem to genuinely care about all students. Our son is doing very well. He is challenged in the classroom and has a fair amount of homework. My other son went to JG and wasn't happy We think because ...  Read more

I am a current teacher, and I have also taught at other schools. This school is by far one of the best. The teachers work extremely hard, and one reason is that the principal expects nothing less. Another reason is that they are truly dedicated to their profession and their students. Many wonderful ...  Read more

I am a former teacher at the school, and I, as well as many other teachers, truly did care for my students and worked very hard to develop quality programs for them, as well as standards based instruction that was engaging and challenging. The school has many problems. One of the problems was that there ...  Read more

Horrible absolutely terrible. Send your child to John Glenn or something because La Quinta has some serious problems. I am a student here and I would give this school no stars if I could. I could blame budget cuts but really this is too much.

They offer honors classes in which my son attends. Although he struggles in algebra I am here to assit him ...  Read more

This school is very poor in quality. Starting from the top. There is no leadership from the Principal on down to the Vice-Principal. Students are not motivated and are acting out in various ways.

My daughter is an eight grader and I have spent the last 2 years doing everything except walking my daughter to class and hold her hand. The counselors are a joke, the teachers are a bigger joke. Substitutes are in classes for 6 month or longer but are not required to post grades so your child fails. ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
