Palm Desert Charter Middle School Reviews

1 review
My experience at P.D.C.M.S. was quite an adventure. In 6th grade, my teachers were very kind and cared about my education and the grade I got. The students were very friendly and didn't mind making a new friend or two. Throughout the years I got to get to know my teachers and try new things. The color guard program is very cool because they start from workshop and eventually they give you tryouts to become varsity and winter guard. There is also a dance program. The dance program, improves your dancing, gets you into shape and helps you if you're shy, to come out of your shell, experience new things, meet new people, and helps work on your performance skills. The marching band program is very fun, even though I wasn't in it myself, I have a few friends who were in it and they enjoyed. The marching band associates with color guard and works with them to create amazing routines and perform all around. There is also regular P.E. which keeps you very active. Make sure to dress out or you lose major points. These are all examples of the P.E. programs that P.D.C.M.S. has. The electives go from a variety of either a language, (French or Spanish), Robotics, which competes in a game of Botball, Art, and many other electives that help to better the school and the students. The required classes such as Math and Science and English, provide fun activities and I enjoyed.

If you are applying for this school, for your child, I really recommend it.
