    "Desert Ridge High School is a place I have been very involved with. From freshman to senior year, I've really developed a great understanding for the people and the place that many people call home for 4 years of their life. Being involved with the cheer team and National Honors Society is something I am very proud of, and I know that it has helped me connect with several people that I wouldn't have reached out to before. Desert Ridge has expanded my horizons and shaped me into the person that I am going to be, moving forward into the real world. I will miss the friendly and arm-opening environment that Desert Ridge supplied for me everyday for four years of my life."

    "The school could improve the current curriculum set into place. Not a single teacher had the same course outline as the next so it caused various difficulties for the students who had to switch classes and assimilate into another. I would suggest that the field of academics be more organized throughout the entirety of the district not just the school."

    "My experience at desert ridge was a very good one. The school itself was great and almost all the teachers were loving and caring, but most of the time it felt as though the district couldn't help the school as much as it needed. Without proper funds and help it affected many teachers causing many to leave or get fired. Overall it was a great school"

    "Desert ridge high school is a great school acedemic wise and athletic wise. The thing I would like to change is how the administration takes care of the students issues in some cases they may be very helpful but in others not so much. Overall the school is great and full of opportunity"

    "Overall a very excellent school for athletics. A beautiful campus with a friendly staff. Unfortunately the arts are under appreciated and the system for attendance is awful. Most of the counselors do not know what they are doing. Do not rely on them to make sure you are on track for college."
