    "Throughout my high school experience at Desert Mountain, I have realized that the academics are exceptional here. There are teachers who do an outstanding job in the classroom of teaching lessons and making sure it's understood. It's also rather helpful that some teachers do offer "office hours" where students can come in before and after school to get extra help one- on- one with a teacher. I think this is a good idea because sometimes it is better and more helpful to sit down just you and a teacher and ask whatever questions you have."

    "Overall, teachers at the high school I'm currently attending: Desert Mountain High School do an exceptional job. Of course there are teachers that go above and beyond making sure every single student in their classroom grasps what they are teaching, but some seem to have just lost that spark and almost have given up. When I see some of my favorite and most respectable teachers teach, I can tell their passionate and really do care, but with others, it seems they have lost that spark and the concept of what it means to be a teacher."

    "The social scene at Desert Mountain is not close- minded at all. From what I have noticed and experienced there is no discrimination or peer pressure. Of course, there are those few kids who will make a racial slur or are very outspoken about their beliefs, but the majority of students are rather accepting of each other and I think that whatever challenges people may be facing, others always are finding ways to help."

    "The teachers try very hard. Not all are perfect, but what can you expect. For how much they put up with teaching High School, they do a great job."
