Distance learning recommenced for PVSchools students on Monday, November 23.
At Desert Trails, our experienced, dedicated staff offers a wide range of opportunities for diverse learners from Pre-K through 6th grade, including self-contained gifted, as well as self-contained special needs classes. We also have staff who specialize in PE, STEM, Art, Music, Band and Strings. Our students eagerly welcome newcomers to our school community as they put into practice our school-wide Be Kind program, which is the basis of our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). Our 5th and 6th grade team is departmentalized, so students receive instruction from teachers focused on a specific subject area or two. We partner with parents and the community in many ways, including our active, supportive PTO members, who collaborate with us to provide specialized classroom materials and sponsor events enjoyed by all. The result of everyone working together – teachers, support staff, parents, students, and the surrounding community – is a positive, safe school environment where our students excel at mastering Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards, as evidenced by our school ranking 15th in the state, based on AZMerit results.
