There are no gangs at Desert Oasis High School, so, that's a ridiculous claim. It's not the best school, but it certainly isn't the worst. The teachers are outstanding, and they really do care. The people with the problem would be the students. If they're blaming teachers, they should be blaming themselves ...  Read more

This is the worst school ever, lots of drugs, gangs, bullying, I had to pull my child out, because the principle would not do anything about the gang activity in this school.

Very disappointed in this school, very poorly ran, no communication with the parents, Deans are on a power trip with the parents. My child will no longer be in the CCSD, my child will be in home school so he will get the education that this school is so lacking.

I agree whole heartedly ! The teachers have for the most part communicated well when asked via email. THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL has an ego that doesnt allow him to be contacted, return calls, or make appointments.

Amazing school with amazing people. Filled with intelligence, talent, and teamwork. I couldnt possibly dream of going to any other school. I wanted to go to LVA for singing, but then i saw D.O's choir and definitely knew i wanted to go there. . I love this school so much. Go diamondbacks!

Im returning to this school for my senior year, and if you want a good high school but dont want to go to the magnet level, I recommend this one whole-heartedly. I went to Western for 2 years before going here, and the difference was exponential. The staff is extremely kind and helpful, teachers know ...  Read more

Quite scary when a freshman cannot spell his own class name. I was a student here for one and a half years and served as a member of Student Council. I can say that the teachers here are great, devoted and love doing what they do. On the other hand, the principal, while great towards students, never ...  Read more
