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.
Our Food & Nutrition Department wants to hear from you and your children about their experience with the school food environment.
