    My kids went here last year they now go to Horn Lake and let me tell you we miss it! The school is nice clean the staff is friendly and helpful. The teachers are so enthusiastic and caring. I really wish we hadn't switched!

    We think DCPS has been fantastic. My daughter was academically behind coming from a Memphis city school and now she's thriving. She loves school & comes home talking about her day. The teachers' enthusiasm is refreshing to see! They make their students love going to school.

    This year is the 2nd year for my children to go to Desoto Central! I absolutely love the district! The teachers are all wonderful and the principal is too! I highly recommend DCPS
