It’s Been About Family

Some of the things we love about Desert Prep is pretty much from day one they have been polite, courteous, they bring us in, they welcome us with open arms. It’s never been just about the student, it’s been about family. So not only is the student learning, we’re learning as well. The staff is very professional and teamwork is number one to them so they just create this environment that empowers every student to really dive into learning and embrace it. We can tell after every day at school, it works. Our daughter enjoys it, too, so she’s always excited to go to school the next day.

Small School Environment

The things I love about Desert Prep is the small school environment – I’m really enjoying the one-on-one my daughter is receiving with the teachers. I’m enjoying watching my daughter grow from a baby to a young lady, learning how to read and watching her develop, as well as sharing the skill – the life skills – leadership and honesty and integrity.

Enhancing Their Intelligence

What I love about Desert Preparatory Academy is that it continues to enhance the things that I value in my home, which is to have a good attitude, perseverance, and the value of education – enhancing their intelligence. My children are thriving as they go there and they come home with great attitudes about the things they are experiencing.
