This is hands-down the best school in the Coachella Valley! My children are thriving here and we just started this year. The Head of School is warm and friendly, and all the teachers are incredible. We could not be more satisfied!

Palm Valley School is "home." I attended Marywood and Marywood-Palm Valley before during and after the merge. I have witnessed the school go through many changes, but the teachers, values, and community stayed consistent throughout. I know I would not have the work ethic I do today if I had not attended such a wonderful school with an emphasis on college preparedness. Students are taught to be stand-up members of society through community service, ethics, and kindness. At present, the school is moving onward and upward with the integration of technology, PBL, college counseling and more. I cannot wait to follow along as alumni.
As a student at Palm Valley School ,
I believe that it is the best school in the Coachella Valley. Although it costs a pretty penny to go here your paying for the experience and outcome. We have the best technology sports teams and opportunity
to help you glide through those 12 years of school like a breeze. and when its time to graduate whether you are a lifer at the school, or a new comer, Palm Valley school will have prepared you for graduation, college, and beyond!
