    "My daughter has been at Desert View since kindergarten. She's done extremely well because of both the administration and the teachers. We will be moving next year and I have been looking at schools. I am extremely worried that the new schools will not measure up. This year both the principal and the assistant principal helped establish goals for my daughter. I have never heard of such support. I cannot rate this school high enough. The teachers and administrators are wonderful."

    "We recently moved to Yuma and I am thrilled to have our two children at Desert View Academy. They began the year by setting goals with MAPs, and the teachers continually challenge them to reach those goals. My first grader is already writing stories and we are amazed at how much she has learned! The principal goes into the classrooms and knows the students by name, rather than just sitting in her office like the principal at our old school. We also really like Mission Monday, and look forward to the call on Sunday evening to hear what the Mission for the week will be. We are glad to be a part of DVA, and would highly recommend it to other families."

    "We have been pleased with the quality of teaching. My student struggled at the beginning of the year to meet the high expectations but eventually understood the requirements. HOWEVER- the administration is horrible. The only amicable front office member is Margot and the leadership is completely jaded. Sometimes it seems like they are running a concentration camp instead of an elementary school."

    "Desert View is an awesome alternative to traditional under performing public schools. I enrolled my 3 children at DVA and they flourished there. They went from falling far below to meets or exceeds in all core subject areas in the first 2 quarters of the school year. For the parents that want to see how well educators do when left to their own teaching devices and merits, our public charters are the way to go. They do far more with less funding and without all the bureaucratic red tape and teachers unions our traditional public schools use. These educators aren't teaching to test they are actually teaching core subjects along with good character traits. Be respectable, be responsible and be safe!"

    "I just finished going to DVA I have been there kinder through 5th Grade. Through all these years I have learned so much. Not just about math, social studies, and other subjects. I also learned how to be a better friend and learned lots of character. And got lots of friends. Sometime the teachers go hard on you but some of them are really nice and fun. My favorite activities were the pennies for patients fundraiser and pool day. I really enjoyed my 6 years at DVA. Sometimes they will push you hard to do something. But trust me if you go there you will like it. Have Fun :)"
