For our family, becoming part of Desert Academy happened by accident. This IB school was not on our radar and turned out to be much different from the vague ideas we had about the school.
My daughter Iza and I love Desert Academy for its happy and safe environment, the wonderful social atmosphere amongst its students, the creative and exceptional level of academics, the personal interaction with teachers and staff, its small class sizes, and the true care that’s always present.
I feel very confident that the education my daughter receives at Desert will be her best possible preparation for a happy and effective college education.
Desert Academy is a rigorously academic school, but that doesn’t mean I sacrifice anything. Teachers are supportive and understanding, and Desert has allowed me to develop passions in and out of the classroom.
