Three of my children have attended this school over the last few years and the quality of education has really gone downhill. My youngest starts kindergarten next year and we plan on having him go to another school. They have had quite a few cut backs in the past two years and it really shows. As far ...  Read more

I am very in touch with this school. I currently attend "Desert Harbor" this school is ridiculous. They treat the Jr . high classes like kindergarteners. We should be treated like young adults not babies. And the kids that attend this school are the biggest bullies, and are rude as heck to the teachers. ...  Read more

Desert harbor elementary...horrible rude staff. It's like its split in half . You get the younger grades that have very sweet teachers and the junior high teachers are scary. The other staff are very rude and talk down to you. I see staff constantly talking down to parents. Not a friendly place at all. ...  Read more

I moved my daughter to Desert Harbor for the integrated arts program and have not regretted it! The teachers have been outstanding and caring and the Principal and VP are always present and involved. The PTA is also strong and creative. The atmosphere is fun I am so pleased to be part of DH.

They take the easy way just to end the day and get a paycheck. Lots of substitute teachers. Please change ...  Read more

I too moved here because of the school system it looked promising 10 years ago. Over those ten years I felt that the school has worked hard to put a band-aid on the obvious problems - too much training that is just common sense and teachers spend too much time away from their students leaving them to ...  Read more

My children have attended DH since Kindergartner. One graduated from DH the other in 5th grade. I must say we loved DH when our oldest attended. My now 5th grader had a HUGE issue with his 3rd grade teacher to the point my husband and I had MANY meetings with the principal to make her aware of the situation. ...  Read more
