    This is a great school with wonderful teachers and principal. This school is very child centered and academics are very important. There are always exciting programs for the kids and families. My daughter loves her teacher and can't wait to go to school every morning. Excellent school!

    This school has change too much. The previous principe has retired and the new principe looks like he is not fitting in very well From what I have gathered it sounds like he does not trust his teachers and is more worried about enrollment then the academics. The school is still a great school but I feel the teachers are holding the school together if they were to leave it would be bad for the school. I feel the great reputation of the school is being destroyed by way too many changes. The current principle Is very disorganized and feels like everything is last minute . I feel the new principle was a bad choice for Desert Adventist Academy. -submitted by a parent

    I absolutely love this school and I am so thankful to have found it. The teachers are fantastic. They are so good with the children and very helpful in all aspects of the childrens' development; educational spiritual social etc. The small class size is very nice. The children are kind to one another. The school is expanding into another building soon and we are excited about the new gym and library. I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone.
