    "Over the last several years I have worked in multiple schools, and have found Desert View Academy to be one of the most student- centered educational facilities in the area. DVA has high standards for both their students and their staff. Many feel as though this is equates to a single-minded focus on testing. However, as with many professions, we use testing to collect information about our students so that we can best meet their educational needs. If you want your son/daughter to enjoy an above average education in the city of Yuma, then this is the school to attend."

    "I am a first grade teacher at Desert View Academy and could not be happier where I teach. It is so great to work at a school with so much support, parent involvement and sense of community. As a teacher it is nice to know that your classroom size will never be above 26 students. Also that each grade level has one interventionist ( aid ) per grade level. We focus a lot on small group instruction which can help us target all ranges of students. We do not just help one, but set our schedules, classrooms and mind on helping all of those who walk into our classroom. It is also a plus that we have so much technology in our classrooms. It is amazing how much my students have learned this year in technology class, and how they are applying it in the classroom. I think others need to know how fantastic this school is, and how hard the teachers and staff work to keep this schools amazing reputation going as an A plus performing school."

    "Desert View Academy is truly an extraordinary school. Our students educational achievements are forged on the most influential and long lasting foundation there is... CHARACTER. Not only do we teach the six traits of character but it is our school's culture. Most recently our "Because we care" motto helped raise $14,000 for Pennies for Patients. Our students are being taught to live out Caring, Fairness, Citizenship, being Trustworthy, Responsible, and Respect. What an amazing community these children will one day make as they live out their character. Additionally, DVA's personalized teaching simply rocks. Students of all levels receive interventions. Whether it's to close some gaps to achieve benchmark or to thrust them yet to a greater level by raising the bar and challenging those that have already exceeded. Both my kids have been recipients of this personalized attention. Their foundation at DVA greatly influenced their success in the years that followed. My 16 yr old daughter has recently been invited to apply for the Flinn Foundation Scholarship. This foundation not only looks at academic success but a student's influence and character in their community. THANK YOU DVA!"

    "Desert View Academy (DVA) is where I work, where I send my kids, and where my heart is. As a military spouse I take my kids' educations seriously and look for excellent schools so that when we move my kids aren't far behind, but rather ahead of the curve. DVA provides quality education with heart and character. I'm sure there are many schools that educate Yuma youth and do so well, but DVA does it best. I am proud to work at DVA and strive, like all of our staff, to provide our students with knowledge and skills to prepare them for the future. DVA is leaps and bounds ahead of schools with technology integration programs nationally recognized by the Department of Defense and has state ratings of excellence. My kids are well prepared because of the staff at DVA, and I proudly speak of the positive things that DVA is doing for Yuma youth and the Yuma community. -Parent and teacher"
