Describe the type of student who should attend Desert Mountain High School. Why?


Anonymous, Student, Desert Mountain High School, Class of 2017

Any student can attend Desert Mountain High School. A huge reason why I love this school is that anyone, whether someone is an athlete, an artist, a dancer, a leader, or a scholar, can find their niche. This school offers so many opportunities, and has a full staff of teachers that mold students into successful, responsible adults. Living in Arizona, where the public school teachers are some of the lowest paid in the nation, it is sometimes difficult to find schools that give everyone an equal opportunity for success, no matter their current educational standpoint. At Desert Mountain, however, the teachers, coaches, even security guards and secretaries, are genuinely concerned for the students' well-being. Anyone can find a place at Desert Mountain. I personally believe this also, partially, has to do with the sheer size of the school. With an average of 2,300 students each year over the past twenty-one years, Desert Mountain welcomes students of all types, and because of this, everyone can find a group of people where they can belong. The school also offers an amazing amount of clubs and sports, and really encourages students to get involved. Honestly, I could not be more pleased when I see how welcoming Desert Mountain truly is.!

A student that would take advantage of the dual enrollment process. I started taking college level classes in my sophomore year and continued with it thru to my senior year. Knowing I don't have to take a few of those classes once I graduate from High School makes me feel good. I also joined DECA and that helped me with public speaking and fast thinking while problem solving too. I think a student that goes to DMHS should want to join groups and clubs.
