Open Quote We have been with Desert Heights Schools for 5 years. Each year I am impressed by the efforts of the staff, the overwhelming family feeling of the community, and most important the level of academics my child receives.

I am grateful to have my child in a school where she is in a safe learning environment that continues to grow. We cannot wait for the future, as we continue up through the grades.

Thank you Desert Heights! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
