Download Campus Report
- The main school campus is located at 72-261 Highway 111, Suites 121-B, 121-C, 201 and 203, Palm Desert, CA. in the Los Sombras Village Center; a commercial office-type building, occupying less than a combined total of 4000 sq. ft.
- the Center is in a very low crime area of the City of Palm Desert, and
- the other occupants of the center are primarily family-type restaurants, and
- the student body and staff number under 115 people, and
- the students are not at the campus building after 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday
- the school is closed on Sunday and Monday
- the parking lot in front of the campus building is patrolled by a professional
security agency provided by the property owner
Therefore, based upon the lack of any significant incidents of reported crime in the immediate area of the campus (which includes the parking area directly in front of the building where the campus occupies a portion, and the public restaurants located to the left and right of the building and the parking in front of those businesses, the above described location and small occupancy of the campus, there has been no need for separate Campus Security Personnel.
The instructional and administrative staff have been, and will remain to be, responsible for assisting any student who may have an emergency or security concern. Upon any emergency involving a life-threatening injury, 911 is to be summoned immediately. An adequate supply of first-aid supplies is kept on campus to treat minor injuries. In incidences involving a potential crime (theft, vandalism, etc.) the police will be called to document the incident. In no incident shall a staff member be expected to put his/her life in danger, however, all reasonable measures must be taken to ensure the safety of the student.
The Police, Fire Department and Emergency Medical Response telephone numbers are posted in the reception desk, the administration desk, and the business office.
A binder will be kept in the administration office where a record of any incidences involving students, staff or clients will be logged, by an administrative staff member from information gleaned from any written Incident Report turned in for the day. Any incident will be reported immediately to the administrator or designee for immediate follow-up, if necessary.

The Campus Security Report is distributed annually to all students and employees and is included with other Consumer Disclosure Information that is made available to prospective students or any interested party, upon request.
