This is the worst high school I have ever worked. The students are disrespectful, rude and refuse to do work. They walk around with their head phones, walk into class at any time they want with no consequences. If you ever decide to teach here, I would not work here if I was desperate for a job. I lasted two days and that was enough. The worst experience of teaching in my whole career. On the good note, a couple teachers were helpful and the principle is very nice and helpful, but overall, extremely disorganized and the students are horrible!!!!!!!!!!

As a student teacher at Desert View, I am very impressed with the administration, the teachers and the students. A remarkable number of advanced and honors courses are offered, as well as a large amount of remedial time for students not passing the AIMS test.
