    "I have nothing but great things to say about Desert Cove!! I have 3 kids attending. My oldest has been attending since Kindergarden (2007) and will be starting 5th grade next week. We have moved out of district and the kids refused to go anywhere but Desert Cove! The PTO is great with a huge parent involvement. I have spoken one on one with the principal with any concern I have, and always am very impressed with the outcome! The teachers are very involved and always available to meet after or before school. My kids and I give Desert Cove an A+."

    "My son moved to Desert Cove in December. I have been so impressed with this school! The principal communicates and cares about the students. The teachers are amazing and it truly feels like the small private school we could no longer afford. We have not missed a thing and love this school! Academics are top notch, my son is finally challenged. He says the work before was boring but now he loves the type of work he does, the way the teacher works with him, and how interesting each and every day is. This school feels like family and I am out of district. One other thing to meniton, the ladies at the front desk are so kind, friendly and helpful. This is HUGE! After years of trying to get information from the school by our house I have found them to be so comforting and easy to communicate with. It just helps make everything else that is wonderful really amazing... and the PTO is wonderful as well!"

    "Both of my kids have gone to this school a long time, one since 2nd grade who is now in middle school, and the other since kindergarten and is currently in 4th grade. I have a lot of respect and admiration for the teachers and staff that are at Desert Cove. My oldest child had some attention issues and every teacher, each year, was very willing to work with us to find ways to help her focus and stay on task, and above all get the most out of her education. I am very grateful to all of them for their hard work and attention, which is so difficult to provide in a public school setting. Both of my kids have been in the gifted/honors classes and I have to say that has been one of the BEST aspects of their education. The teacher is AMAZING! The classes are tough, but she is very fair and her focus is on making sure the kids are challenged and understand the materials. She is communicative and very proactive in discussing potential issues with parents. I don't think I could ask for a better teacher, role model, and mentor for my kids. No school or person (teacher) is perfect, but I am grateful that the staff and teachers at Desert Cove do their very best for our kids... every day."

    "Read the prior review and am sorry for that families experience. I just wanted to comment that I had an issue that needed attention from teacher and principal this school year and it was dealt with professionally and promptly. Overall, I feel teachers and administration seem very committed to their students and that's what I hear from several other parents as well."
