Desert Heights had been a better than average school until this year. With the implementation of the Common Core State Standards the school has become mediocre at best. Teachers, fearful of students not meeting the benchmarks in tough subjects (i.e. mathematics), have begun teaching to the lowest performing ...  Read more

I love DHCS and DHPA. I have three children that attend the school, and I have never been at a school before where the teachers go above and beyond. Both principals at both campuses have great communication with the parents, and I can tell that the teachers truly care about the students.

DHCS cares about the community and it's families that attend. This is our third year. We couldn't be happier with the staff and teachers. It's like being part of a big family. If any issues are to arise they are taken care of immediately.

CAUTION! The principal states in her bio that there is no problem we can't solve if we work together...this is a fabrication. This was not our experience. She uses words callously in describing behavior issues. And ultimately she was ill prepared to aid in our son's development. Long story short, our ...  Read more

I am a parent of DHCS student who excels in all of the classes. I believe this is because of her positive experiences with her teacher and aftercare staff. I am also a parent who is involved with her education and with some staff members. I donate my time out of my schedule to make sure my child and ...  Read more

Desert Heights has been an awesome school for my grandson. I wouldn't ever even consider putting him in the public school he would go to. He is going on his 3rd year and although their may have been a couple bumps in the road they were taken care of. The teachers keep me posted both in his academics ...  Read more
