Desert Hills High School Reviews

Desert Hills is and Amazing place.. And if you don't think so, I hope you have a good reason. Many people complain about the staff. Very few teachers that come to our school intend to come off "mean" or "unfair". Personally, I come to find that if you sit down, shut up, BE RESPECTFUL, and do what you're there to do then the teachers can be so cool to you! And then there is the obvious drug concerns... ALL SCHOOLS have this! Just because we have a smaller campus doesn't mean that we don't have the same drug to drug free ratio! Desert hills is no different then a normal high school. If you don't like the land or the labor or the capital. Then please, keep looking..

I cannot believe this school is allowed to be open. I bet if the state really knew what happens on this campus, that they would shut this school down ASAP !

Desert Hills High School is a Charter school for mostly those "difficult-to-deal-with" high school students. Drop outs from the close public schools come and go from here often. It offers classes that help students in grades 9-12 get closer to graduation. Unfortunetly it doesn't offer a cafeteria at lunch,so students must bring their own,order junk food from the student store,buy pricey mexican borritos at ralph's (a van that comes by selling drinks and food) or get food from what is ordered variously through out the monday through thursday weekdays (for example on mondays dominos pizza and breaksticks are available for $3 each). MANY students are under the influence of drugs and have trouble concintrating on their school work but this school is atleast a possitive influence.
