Administration is extremely rude. My daughter was bullied by other kids and no one took my complaints seriously. Former principal was good solid educator.

School needs a lot of improvement. Teachers are good but administration is horrible. Assistant principal (Ms. Ramirez) is rude and disrespectful. I do not like that they do not allow parents in school and when release kids there is not enough supervision.

I love teaching at this school. The atmosphere is very positive and the students and parents are great. The administration really cares about it's students and staff. I have taught from Fl. Worth to San Antonio, and Desertaire is ahead by leaps and bounds.

Desertaire has such a great atmoshphere for learning. The administrators and teachers definitely go out of their way to make sure each child gets the best in academics with the latest technology. I know my children are safe, comfortable, and willing learners-what more can a parent ask for?
