I really like this school! My son enrolled in the preschool and the staff is extra friendly and I am very pleased with their teaching methods. I volunteer in class quite often to see how my child interacts with the staff and I am very comforable with thier performance. Thanks Mrs. Rigor, Mrs. Anne, and Miss Carrie for making my son's first year memorable.
I am a parent of 4 children who have all graduated from Desert Knolls Elementary School and I truly miss it. It is a wonderful school with huge parental involvement, which in my opinion, says a lot about a school in itself. Desert Knolls puts a lot of emphasis on self esteem as well as academics which is important to academic success in the future. The materials and tools used are all up-to-date. They employ competent teachers who genuinely enjoy working with children. With 4 children, they went through a lot of teachers while attending this school. I cannot think of a single one that did not give 110%. I would (and do) recommend this school to anyone wondering which school is the best choice in Apple Valley. Thank you to Desert Knolls School for the many years of joy brought to my children as well as myself.
My daughter loves this school. Overall I am very impressed with the quality of education. I was surprised to see that when we changed to this school my daughter was behind, I guess her previous school (was not what it was cracked up to be.
Excellent public school. Principal is very involved and shows a great interest in the students. Lots of activities available; band, chorus, GATE on site, track.
