    "Desert Vista School and staff are great!!!! I have been involved with this school and staff for the last few years and have not been disappointed!!! The person who posted that the nurse is insensitive must be talking about someone else because the current nurse is wonderful!!! She treats all the children the same and always communicates with parents. The entire staff put the children first and that is what makes them so special. Keep up the great job Desert Vista!!!!!"

    "As principal of Desert Vista Elementary, I always appreciate feedback both to celebrate accomplishments and to improve so we can be better tomorrow than we are today. My school nurse does not attend assemblies as her responsibility is to look after our students who may go to the nurse's office during that time. She truly cares about every student just like all the staff members at DVES. Thank you for your feedback."

    "Although I rated this school 4 stars, I must say the nurse has got to go. She is the most insensitive person I have ever met! The is out right hateful to the children and even pulled my 5 year olds hair at an assembly as she was looking for a place to sit in order to direct her."

    "Well first of all the staff that we had contact with seem very confused and stressed out. Very high lack of communication. After being told by several people that our children will be going to Desert Vista, so we purchased uniforms and school supplies to prepare to start school.. Let me say We were not prepared when we got a call from the principal (Nice Lady). she informed us that our kids were at the wrong school according to our address. Why is there so much chaos and B.S. within the school/school district? Is there a lack of understanding and comprehension of how a school should be ran. But like I told my wife this might all be a blessing in disguise, Maybe they weren meant to go tro that school. by how rundown it is I dont think it should even be open..........."
