Reconstruction[edit]

Palm Desert High School was reconstructed as part of the District's $100 million bond used for PDHS, Lincoln, Kennedy, and Eisenhower schools. The new campus has been built to the north of the old campus using the former sports fields for land. The project was completely finished by the beginning of the 2011-12 school year. The new fields opened by the following year.. The new classrooms have state-of-the-art facilities. Classrooms have a capacity for 10 or more computers. A new gymnasium has been built to seat approximately 2000 students.
