    "I like Desert Mountain High School teachers that care about getting a good grade by offering before school homework help if you need it. I also enjoy the photography class that teaches how to use a dark room along with instruction on photography since so many people only use digital photos today. One change I would like to see in the school is more focus on the use of technology like iPads for everyday work. This is how my generation works and this should be embraced in our everyday school work."

    "What sets Desert Mountain apart from all other high schools in the area is the IB and AP/Honors program. The Highschool's flexible schedule and diverse range of classes allow you to make the most of your high school career. You get to choose how easy or difficult you want high school to be. If I was a parent in the Scottsdale Unified School District; I would absolutely send my kid to this school."

    "Desert Mountain High School is an excellent publicly funded school. The school boasts advanced and honors programs for students as well as strong arts, athletics and career development programs. I can personally say that I participated in as many of programs sponsored by the school as possible (Sports, Clubs, Academic Societies, etc.) and as a result, I received an incredible amount of attention from colleges who all found the diversified portfolio of interests a promising and positive aspect. Desert Mountain provides every possible means for success, regardless of academic proficiency or subject interest."

    "Very good teachers who care. Admin can be a little crazy with rules. The school provides many academic opportunities, but has very little lee way if you are not at the top of your class. Class rank is weighted but since we have the IB program it can be harder than other schools to be in the top 25%"

    "I went to all four years of high school at Desert Mountain. There were a ton of clubs that were extremely diverse, the teachers were top-notch, and the culture was very diversified. If I ever have kids, I'll send them there."
