  • Dear Desert Springs Preparatory Families,
       It is with great honor that I begin the 2016-2017 school year as the new principal at DSpES. I am excitedRaquel Scott, principal for the opportunity to serve the students, families, staff and community in continuing our path of student success while also fostering a love for learning.  
       I am a native to Arizona and grew up in both Phoenix and Cave Creek.  I received my undergraduate degree from Arizona State University in Elementary Education and later, a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership and in Human Relations from Northern Arizona University.  
       At Desert Springs Preparatory we are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for our students, along with a quality education where we celebrate students’ successes. We pride ourselves in high expectations for student learning with a focus on Core Knowledge, technology integration, and instructional strategies that support the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards. As your Principal, I am committed to building strong relationships with our students, families, staff, and community partners.  
      I believe it is important for us to work together and I value your support and involvement here at DSpES.  Please do not hesitate to come speak with me regarding any concerns or suggestions.
