I truly believe that Desert Sky makes decisions and implements curriculum based on what is best for students. I wish that Vail wasn't so focused on testing, but I do realize that testing is necessary in order to assess how well students are learning the curriculum. I am proud to say that all three of my children went through DSMS and all three are doing very well today in part because of the strong teachers and support they had through those troubling middle school years. My hat is off to you, DSMS!! Keep up the great work!
I'm currently in desert sky and I'm in 7th grade and all i want to say is most of the teachers are very ignorant and don't know how to teach properly, plus they don't treat the students with respect.

My daughter is a seventh grader at Desert Sky, and I couldn't have asked for a better school. I love that this school has challenging classes, kind staff members, and lots of extra-curricular activities after school. Thanks DS!

I have seen a significant decline in both quality of teachers hired and overall quality of the school. Teachers and monitors raise voices and yell at kids all the time. Very few teachers actually seem to be involved and interested in quality of provided and taught material. Sad, used to be a great school.
