    "My son attended Desert Ridge for one semester and could no longer tolerate the racism, so we transferred him. He now attends a school that is more diverse and teachers are more involved and sincerely care about their students."

    "This was a great school for my son who graduated in 2010 with honors. It is the only high school in the district that has an engineering track , and that was exactly the field that my son wanted to pursue. The instructors were always there encouraging and inspiring the students to pursue their dream. Administration was helpful and the sport coaches were very dedicated and inspired the students to achieve their best. I highly recommend this school!"

    "I have attended Desert Ridge for the past two years and have enjoyed every minute of it! I have received plenty of help from teachers (except for one) and in a lot of sports and clubs. This school is bully free with plenty of opportunities! Go jags!"

    "I am very happy with this school. I have a son that graduated in 2008, and another that is a senior this year and also a freshman. I have a gifted son, one with learning disability, and a typical student. This school worked hard to meet all of their needs. They have top rate teachers and the athletics programs are doing better every year. Mr. Coombs is a great principal and a strong leader. The same is true of Ms. Henry, Mr. Stroud, and Ms. Murphy. Great leadership team!"

    "FYI: this a bully friendly school. I am very disappointed how the administrative faculty handle bullying. In my experience so far, the teachers have been great, what a shame, I will make sure my other children do not attend this high school."
