This school is horrible with communication. There is no supervision during lunch. They put my child, a kindergartener, on a daycare van and she doesn't go to daycare. She was supposed to be on the bus and dropped off at home but when the bus arrived I had no idea where she was. I had to call the school ...  Read more

In regards to my previous post, 5 stars for the quality of life but only 2 on education standards at Desertaire. Hopefully in due time the education standards at Desertaire will rise up to meet the demands because when that happens it will be a much sought after school. The school has a lot of potential ...  Read more

This school does not act like most schools in Texas. They do not respect parents and still have a huge problem with bullying. The staff is extremely rude and the teachers need to retake their certification exams. English is the second language at this school. That should not be allowed in the United ...  Read more

Children are packed into tiny messy ...  Read more

My daughter attended this school last year, and not much seems to have changed. I pulled her out as soon as I was able to. The staff was very rude and disrespectful, communication with the parents was horrid, and the safety of the children was always an issue. Good luck, and be as involved as you can ...  Read more

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.

The class rooms are messy and unorganized. This school has so much to improve and they need to update the teachers with better education for the students.

This school has a bad way in communicating back with parent and keeping control of the children when parents drop them off. There is no supervision at the time parents drop them off which caused an incident where my child of kindergarden got choked by four 5th and 6th graders. This was reported to the ...  Read more
