Excellent school! They are always willing to go the extra mile for a student. The extra programs are great and the brag tags are a fun way to reward students. We started in another district (in tucson) and they didn't even compare. If you are considering desert winds then give it a try and you won't look back!

This is an excellent school. I have had my daughter taken out of other schools in Tucson and Eloy, neither one of those schools even come close or compare to Desert Winds Elementary. I could not ask for a better choice of schools.

If you are looking for a mediocre education, it may be for you, I am very dissatisfied with this school, it is barely performing, my child is the gifted program, however it is only in words, I am not sure if he is doing anything different than the regular curriculum..It is a very week school.

My grandaughter attends Desert Winds as a Kindergartener. Her teacher and aids are awesome plus all the staff are always caring and willing to give information and help. They are quick to give recognition and build esteem when a child does something even small. Thank you for caring!

I have 2 grandchildren who live with me, we have had a very difficult time, The staff at Desert Winds have been very supportive and caring of all our needs and have been very prompt at getting information needed to help us in this difficult time. This is the best school I have had the pleasure dealing with.
