The original sites for George Washington and Abraham Lincoln schools was in Indio with the Lincoln site became the Indio community school in the 1960s and now Our Lady of Perpeutal Help Catholic school in the 1990s. William McKinley School was closed in the 1960s when Indio Public Schools had to integrate its schools for Black-American students.
