Now I’m a senior from Desert Mirage high school one of many schools of the Coachella Valley district. Throughout elementary, middle, and high school years have been attending this district. The district always provides materials to us in the low-income community. I enjoyed the school's spirit and opportunities they provide for us. For example, having university attended to every school has provided information to the students and helping us fill out the FAFSA applications. Another thing, I love is how they congratulated us by giving the students Coachella festival bracelets for having good grades. Although it does have its fun and unfunny days, many students and I have complained about the food we are given. All the we serve all the everyday food burgers, burritos, nachos cheese, etc these are everyday reheated. For example, the cheese isn’t a pleasant taste and the burgers are nasty that many aren’t “cooked” well. We would like to have a change in the food to better food.
Most of my teachers I thought were great and helpful that really love to help their students. The school spirit is immaculate since we're usually the loudest when it comes to cheering for our teams and showing class colors. The Dance team and the Band group are extremely talented and passionate in what they do; therefore, that love for what they do is expressed in their performances which is beautiful. The school does lack improvements in infrastructure, maintenance and internet connectivity. I especially love the Day of the Dead festival and how everybody in the school collaborates in some way to make it a success. I wish there were more clubs and programs one can join as I believe there is a necessity for more available resources and opportunities that students can participate in.
My experience here was poor. I will be speaking specifically about Coachella Valley High School as alumni. Teachers and academics are poor because some teachers will barely care about the class and are only here for the money the district pays them. BARE MINIMUM TEACHERS, but there are few gems especially in AP classes. One thing that is true is that sports are great especially football. The facilities are ugly, no effort made, we still have trailers as classrooms for most of them. Also, the district doesn't care much about schools since every school in the valley has been rebuilt and we still have cruddy classrooms and facilities.
