I am proud to welcome you to La Quinta High School! I look forward to a well rounded, fulfilling year for our students as they continue their journeys in 21st century learning. Our staff is committed to the education of every student, so that each student can think critically, collaborate and communicate effectively and grow in creativity and discovery. Our goal is that all Blackhawks graduate from La Quinta High School college and career ready, equipped with the skills they need to soar. I invite you to contact your student’s teacher, counselor or myself regarding your student’s education. We look forward to meeting you.

Attention LQHS student body!!
We are offering a Dance/Synchronized swimming class for the first time this year on Saturday April 11, 2015. Come turn up the heat on the dance floor and cool off in the pool! You must be able to swim 50 yds (2 lengths of the pool). The class is limited to the first 20 students who sign up with Ms. Monachello-Prahl in the dance room!!

Medical Health Academy applications will be due in a couple of weeks. You can get your application and turn them in to room 181 MHA or give it to your counselor. Most all students are accepted into the program even if they are athletes, have some honors classes, or even have gotten a F. Our program is offered to ALL students, as long as the schedule fits. Look for the MHA student reps at lunch in the quad with the roller cart, for more info.
