preschool Developmental Preschool Is Seeking Peers!

Children who are 4 years old are eligible for tuition-based enrollment in the Desert Mountain Developmental Preschool Classroom as a peer role model. We are seeking peers who display excellent language and behavior skills to attend our classes.

Peers are included in our preschool program to provide role models for the students who have special needs. Our hope is that each group of children will learn from the other.

The parents of preschool peers pay tuition. Tuition is $145 per month. It is due the first school day of each month.

Peers attend preschool four days per week, Monday through Thursdays. Morning session runs from 8:45-11:15 and the afternoon session runs 12:30-3:00. If you are interested in your child attending as a peer please contact the teachers by email.

Welcome

Welcome to Desert Mountain School! 

Welcome to our Desert Mountain website. Desert Mountain School is the proud home to Preschool through Eighth Grade. Our Sonoran Desert Studies Academy is thriving at Desert Mountain.   Each grade level will complete a unit of studies related to the Sonoran Desert.  These units are project - based and integrate the different content areas.  We have a Habitat, Cactus Garden, Nature Walk, Outdoor Classroom, Outdoor Reading Area, and Reptile Habitat. Third grade has made a rock garden.  The fourth grade operates our weather station. 

This year, we are excited to offer SAGE classes for Gifted and Talented and Advanced Classes in all content areas for 7th and 8th grades. We have an excellent Band and 3 Chorus groups.

At Desert Mountain we are proud of our HAWK program.  This is our school wide positive behavior program.  HAWK stands for Honorable, Accountable, Willing Attitude and Kind.  Children get HAWK cards for demonstrating they are meeting a school expectation in any one of these areas.  For every 5 HAWK cards, they get a HAWK.  They go in to drawings for incentives. As part of our program, we focus on the anti-bullying component.  Your students may talk about Stop, Walk, and Talk.
