Desert Canyon Middle School Reviews

By a Parent on

The Scottsdale Unified School District comes with a high national rating. I have found most teachers to be extremely focused on helping students in academically in anyway possible. However, despite the high recommendations of this school system, disappointment can't be helped in the fact that bullying is still happening here. Publicity to parents and the community proclaim there is zero tolerance, but this is not true. Very sad when bullying is extremely detrimental to victims, yet staff members either don't believe it is common, or don't take it seriously enough.
