Desert Winds really cares about their students. They always go the extra mile to help where they can. I have not had a negative interaction with anyone there. They encourage parent involvement, feedback and really show a "can do" attitude. I pulled my children from another MUSD school that was much more convenient for them to attend, and now commute to Desert Winds which is at least a 15 minute drive for me. I can't say enough positive things about this school.
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!
