    "After looking at many of the schools around town, we easily made the decision to open enroll our children at Desert Sun Academy. From the small class sizes that utilize Core Knowledge to the Science Lab & amazing staff, Desert Sun has been nothing short of an an amazing experience. This year, the addition of Dr. Korb has also been a welcome & positive change for the school, as has the new A+ rating! We can't say enough positive things about this school!"

    "Desert Sun Academy is awesome especially with our new principal Dr. Micah Korb. He is so open to new ideas, students, parents and staff all working together! He is really creating a sense of community at the school and always available to parents to discuss any matters. We are enjoying the wonderful learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom. I now have all 3 of my children attending this school and can't say enough positive things about our wonderful secretaries, teachers, staff, students and principal."

    "Desert Sun is a gem. The teachers and supportive staff are highly qualified and educated on current teaching strategies, using dozens of technology techniques in their instruction and grouping through documented data that they collect daily. They drive their instruction through the results they see daily in the students and challenge them exactly where they need to be. Students are excited and involved. They have many opportunities for leadership. I'm disappointed in those who would slam a school that has a staff variety that has such professionalism and who works hours that none would accept in their own jobs. They do it for the love of these children. There is always something to complain about, if you don't stop and really see the true beauty in front of you. Avoid the gossip and you will be greatly pleased! My two children have grown immensely at Desert Sun Academy. One has been there K-6. They learn through changes and hard times and love challenging themselves and being creative individuals. I am thrilled about the energy in the new principal this year and the growth that will be seen in years to come at DSA!"

    "Desert Sun Academy is an amazing school. I am a parent and have had children at this school since 2008. From the new principal, Dr. Korb, to the entire staff and the families at Desert Sun I couldn't be happier with my 3 kids experience at the school. It is a smaller school with uniforms and we love it! Everyone on campus knows each other and the sense of community is amazing!"

    "I've been very happy with Desert Sun. The school has terrific parent involvement. All of the teachers that my children have had have been great. The teachers incorporate technology into the classroom. The science lab is wonderful. I love that the kids were uniforms. Spanish, chorus, band, student council, video club... What else can I say?"
