Desert shadows is a great school with rigorous curriculum. The teachers challenge and encourage the students to be the best that they can be. The teachers there are dedicated and caring. The Honors programs is exceptional, the sports program is exemplary, and the music program is incredible. The discipline is great and students are expected to be responsible and follow the rules. I as a parent am thrilled about my children attending this school. The only thing I would complain about is the white or purple sweater rule.

Desert Shadows is a well-organized school and clean, but i doubt it has the standards to help chidren reach their highest potencial. Desert Shadows treats kids that just because their young and the majority think they are the most powerful and outstanding thing. They do not have enough discipline like Nogales middle school Wade Carpenter. This school is a good school but it could use some enhancing.

I have been very impressed with the high level of accountability the teachers have established for the students. At the same time, they have made themselves readily available for student query and parent concerns. Thus far, this has been a great experience.
