    "For having such a strong religious influence in the Desert Ridge Community, we are a pretty diverse school. It's definitely gotten better, too. For example, my big sister attended DR as well and has told me she didn't know of anyone who was openly gay. I can name a handful. People feel safe to come out at our school now. That's a big change in a short amount of time- especially considering how conservative Mesa is."

    "There are a few teachers who seem to hate teaching. They dont want to be there, and neither do te students. However there are also somw teachers who are always emgaged, their students are engaged, and class time isnt dreaded. There are middle ground teachers, but in my experience I've only had the outliers of either very good or very bad."

    "Most teachers are great at communicating with students, teaching, grading consistently, and respectful, as well as responsible. Yet, I cannot speak for all the teachers here because half of them are new or I haven't had them yet."
