Desert Mountain High School is located in an upper class town. The average Desert Mountain student are spoiled with the latest products, however; they understand that education is a major priority. The affulent environment and the number of successful locals influences the mindset of the student. To them, it is the norm to enter college thus making education more important than their passion.

I do not believe that there is a "typical" Desert Mountain Student. Our school is so large and diverse that I do not believe that a category can be made to encompass a "typical" student. Therefore, someone who should attend Desert Mountain should be prepared to encounter such a diverse student body. While some may see it as a disadvantage not being able to describe a "typical" student, I see it as a strength and a sign to the character of Desert Mountain. Personally, I would not have it any other way.

What truly makes desert mountain special is its student diversity. While desert mountain currently boasts top student athletes, it is also home to students who excel far beyond the average in academics and the arts. For example, last year, the top quarterback in the nation graduated from desert mountain receiving a division one scholarship while the marching band traveled to London in order to play music for the Queen of England. This year, four students achieved perfect scores on their ACT tests. Anyone who wants to excel in anything from sports, academics, music, art, or theatre has a place to thrive at desert mountain along side other friendly and open minded students.

Desert Mountain High School has approximately 2400 students which includes a wide range of students. I would not say there is a typical student. I am in the IB program there which has less than 60 students that will be graduating in 2015. They comprise of high achievers of all different race and ethnic backgrounds. However, I am also on the club lacrosse team where I am captain. Those students are academic as well as sporty.
