    "my son has been a student at desert sands middle school for the past two years.as a parent I have watched him grow and blossom as well as excel in advanced classes and making the honor roll as well. I thank the staff for thier support and effort and words of encouragement for making sure my son is right on pace to where he needs to be academicly and providing me with information on the status of my son thru out the years he has been attending desert sands.. a big thumbs up to the highly supportive staff at desert sands :) .... a proud father indeed!"

    "The teachers are excellent, but the administration is lacking in judgement on what is good for the kids. In my experience with them it seems all they care about is impressing and nothing about my child or other children (this is true for the distict). I would take my child out of there if I didn t think it would interfere with my child s education. I worry everyday about the bullying my child gets on a daily basis with no help from the administration. The technology is lacking compared to my younger child s school, with the only bright point is a computer lab in the library which my child raves about. They preach parent involvement, but have never followed through with contacting parents."

    "Desert Sands is overall a good school.The teachers make sure every child understands the subjects they are learning at the present time.The staff and teachers also take time to get to know the students on a personal level ,if a child sees you as a teacher and a friend they will be more willing to learn.There are plenty of extracurricular activites for ,they are many sports to play and they have choir and band.The parent involvement is also satisfactory."

    "This school is a good school. It is struggling to get a handle on the administration level, but it is making a good attempt and in a few years it will be great. The teachers are good and the sports teams are great. I would recommend this school!"
