    "We are new to the community. Our kids come from TOP schools in the country. They have always been in honor roll (A+). I was hesitant to send them to the schools in Maricopa, but so far it has been good. Teachers listen and react in a timely manner to our concerns. The material covered until this point has not been challenging for my kids so we are still waiting for more material to come to them. The school has great potential and I cannot wait for my kids to contribute to the goals of the school to make it the best in the district. Parents do need to get involved in order to make this happen. Support the teacher and the school goals."

    "I think the school has potential to be a great school, but the classes were huge, organization is lacking, you cant reach the staff except the health office."

    "School is decent for the area. Office staff is absolutly horrid to deal with if you can get a hold of them. My child has been there 6-8 now & I can call them all day hit redial over & over...never get the secretary. I have to call every extention until somebody (hopefully) answers. The attendence is usually the one I speak to because she always answers :) The Teachers are awesome! Great school overall."

    "From my experience with other schools in the Maricopa community Desert Wind provides one of the best educations available. The teachers are highly qualified and caring. As a whole they willing give of their time and energy to help each student achieve their best. They are aware of each students needs and ably modifies their lesson to meet these needs. The principal is perhaps one of the best principals I have met. He is willing to listen and is proactive in the community and school. There has never been a time that he does not have a listening ear and willing to work out a solution that is best for the student and teacher. As a whole the school is progressive and willing to embrace each opportunity and a new chance to learn."

    "The school is focused on becoming a great school. As with all schools there are things you love and things you would like changed. What works for this school is that the teachers and principal are willing to listen. Good things are happening there."
