The majority of the population in Coachella are Hispanics. Personally my city encounters the people are friendly and respectful. The events held in Coachella include Day of the child fair, Easter hunts, Christmas parades, health fairs, etc. The local library has recently been remodeled. It has been years since the community has been asking for the high school to be remodeled. The high school doesn’t have a very good reputation in providing college readiness. However, The businesses and stores are old. Not to add the streets need remodeling. In the old town center it’s quite dangerous at night. I think the high school has to be remodeled. The middle schools should have better disciplinary rules because students get into fights a lot. Schools should provide kids with healthier options for breakfast and lunch.

The most amazing thing about Coachella is their festivities and their famous "Coachella Fest" celebration, the ranches are also nice and peaceful. However, the public schools need to change, they really need to fix their education system, and have teachers who are skilled in their academic subject, there should also be an incorporation of new programs and activities as schools. Besides the schools, another change should be adding more stores, as there is not that many stores here and usually one would have to travel far to Indio or La Quinta to purchase desired items.
Coachella is a good town for someone who wants to escape a big city and get a taste if real Mexican culture over the holidays. The schools are okay but the community always gets together to celebrate events. Also, the famous Coachella festival is located here, however, tickets are so expensive it should be a discount for residents!
