    "I really liked the IB Program that Desert Mountain offers. Although this program is not specific to DMHS, there are not many schools in Arizona that offer this rigor. In addition, I love the small classes that the program offers, and the IB Coordinator, Miss Kamka is very helpful in organizing schedules and helping all students meet the requirements."

    "I liked the diverse curriculum. I was able to take pre-IB classes then switch to just AP and honors classes my junior and senior year."

    "Desert Mountain holds a lot of opportunity for a lot of people. There's a vast array of courses for different skill levels and a lot of clubs/sports to get involved in. Most teachers are very thoughtful and make an impact while others don't have the same effect. There have also been changes in certain policies over the past couple of years that simply should not be in place."

    "Surrounded by mountains encircling the campus, Desert Mountain provides an excellent education with numerous amounts of AP, IB, and Honors classes to prepare students for college. Even though it is a fairly large school, the environment is always friendly and energetic, filled with many clubs and sports suitable for everyone! Teachers try their best to work one-on-one with students and make sure he/she thoroughly understands the concept."

    "Desert mountain's teachers excellently educate, but the requirements for education are ineffective or require too much for one class. There also seems to be a student councillor problem. My personal one is encouraging, clear and kind. Multiple of the other ones don't seem to be clear. The most common complain is towards Mrs. Engle. They feel she is confusing, discouraging, and with make you only do what you are safe to "A" in or requires less work for her."
