Prospective DSMS Families:

Thank you for considering Desert Shadows Middle School for your child’s exceptional 7th and 8th grade educational experience. We’re proud that DSMS is a highly chosen school in North Phoenix/Scottsdale. Each year, hundreds of families outside of our boundaries choose to open enroll their students at DSMS. We hope to show you some of the reasons why through a school tour experience or in the video links below.

Open Enrollment is available to out-of-boundary families who wish to apply for enrollment at Desert Shadows Middle School. Starting this year, we are no longer accepting paper applications. All applications must be submitted electronically via the PVUSD district website. The Open Enrollment application can be found at openenrollment.pvschools.net. Please contact our registrar, Laurie McGill, at lmcgill@pvschools.net with any questions. 

Below are the links through which you can become better acquainted with our amazing school. If some videos are missing, check back at a later time. Click here to visit our DSMS Academies page. Call the main office if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Derek Hummert
