    "Very poor administration. Open door policy is a joke and nonexistent. Bullying is a huge problem at this school and forget having administration deal with this seriously. Unfortunately when talking to other parents with the same issues, they all say that they had to end up moving schools. What a shame that we as parents have to search out a good school for our kids instead of the school trying to work with us and find solutions for our kids. The person suffering the most from this school is my child and it breaks my heart to see it."

    "Teachers are great. Some seem to be overwhelmed at times. But overall they put the students first. Administration is poor. Landscaping around the building and playgrounds is abysmal."

    "We have been parents at Desert Hills Elementary school for 6 years, and it has been great experience. They have had great teachers every year, and thanks to them, they get high scores on their tests. My kids also enjoy school very much, which is icing on the cake. The only problem that I have are some parents who aggravate any displeasure they have and unfortunately can foster and exacerbate an environment of discontent and mistrust. Those parents should work with the admin rather than working against them."

    "When my child started Kindergarten here, her academic "scores" on the tests to see where she is, were below the average. Now in the second grade, she is above average on reading and where she needs to be in math. I credit this to the teachers and the "response to intervention" (RTI) that they use at Desert Hills. It has worked wonderfully for her. And she enjoys going to school every day on top of that!"

    "Sure it's easy to give the school a 5 star rating if your kid performs well academically. But if you have a child with special educational needs, then I absolutely cannot and will not recommend this school. We have waited for years to have my child evaluated. The teachers have been supportive and done their part to help, but the administration is completely useless. And if your child has been the victim of one of the many Desert Hills Bullies, then I wish you all the best with getting that resolved. I have had to go in personally to take care of the bullies. I'm tired of promises and complacency on the part of the Desert Hills staff in regards to my child's education and needs. I'm headed into the LCPS Superintendant's office tomorrow. And I should have done this a long long time ago!"
