It is no surprise to me to see that this scholl has been given a 3 out of ten.

My child has attended for 3 years. I am not all impressed with the school. I have met the teachers who seem frustrated. My child is bored at school and I do not feel it is challenging enough. Then to top it all off. The lack of money for books and equipment is ridiculous.

I had my son at Desert Garden from kindergarten to 4th grade. The teachers showing me and telling me my son was doing very well. Finding out later and probably to late that he has a reading disability. There teaching skills are terrible!
