    "My child has been attending since kindergarden. She loves her school, her teachers and is always ready to go and be with her BFF's as she says. I believe with all the improvements that has been made the classes are smaller and the teacher with their helpers and everyone you see helps each other out is nice. A lot different from where we come from although it was in the USA. I believe my daughter has more potential to grow here and not just become a number in the classroom. She is succeeding more than we ever imagined. Maybe it had something to do with the preschool we sent her to as well. Because if we hadn't sent her on our own $$$ we wouldn't have never even known about DK. We immediately went and transfered her into DK rather than the school she was suppose to go to. No regrets. Good to see the security is so good and put into action here. Very Happy also to see she started Algebra in the 1st grade which was like ugh ok! We know it's for her though to be ahead of the game when she graduates. Thank You Desert Knolls. We are glad we found you."

    "My child has attended DKE for 4 yrs., and continues to grow both socially and academically. I have a younger child who will be starting Kindergarten next year and she can't wait! We have always stressed the importance of education, but have never pushed our children to fulfill some need of our own. The entire staff knows our family and treats us with respect and love, as we treat them. I choose to ignore parent's gossip about their experience with this school, as I am perfectly capable of making that choice myself. My children will finish their elementary education here at DKE and will have the skills and values needed to further their educational goals."

    "My child has been at DK for 4 years and he LOVES it! He is a happy, well-rounded child - of course as parents that's what WE encouraged and expected. Too many parents bring in their own educational baggage when they bash a school, they look at their own kids with rose-colored glasses and everyone else is under the microscope. The new staff is caring and supportive and my pre-schooler can't wait to start next year!"

    "I have been very happy with this school. It is unfortunate that classes sizes can't change due to budget, but in my opinion that just means we need to do our part and help out! My son started 1st grade last year and has been given many opportunites to be eduacated at his level. I would recommend this school ! The new principal has brought a much needed excitment and structure to this school."
