After exploring several charter and traditional schools, we found an amazing home in our local, neighborhood school. Our principal is outstanding. It truly was the best decision for our children, when looking at them as a whole person. Couldn't be happier.
Our experience at DCES has been stellar!!!! Every single teacher we have had at DCES has treated my children and my family with the utmost respect. Both of my children have thrived and excelled.

I've had two kids in this school for the past 6 years and both my kids have had demonstrated academic, social and mental growth. The teachers are dedicated and knowledgeable and have been a blessing to my children. I also love the family and community support this school receives.

We love Desert Canyon Elementary. We have a 5th grader and 3rd grader who have been there since Kindergarten. The teachers, administration, staff, and PTO are wonderful. They focus on building character as well as academics. Great community! Great school!
