Desert Trails Preparatory Academy District


Desert Trails Preparatory Academy is the sole elementary charter school serving grades K-8 in the Desert Trails Preparatory Academy District. This diverse school has a majority Hispanic student population, with significant representation from African American and multiracial students.

While Desert Trails Preparatory Academy has faced academic challenges, with overall test scores below the state average, there are some bright spots. Notably, 8th-grade students outperformed the state in both English Language Arts and Science. However, the school's statewide ranking has fluctuated, suggesting inconsistent academic performance that requires further investigation. Additionally, the school serves a high-need population, with 80.46% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch and a chronic absenteeism rate of 24.8%, which likely contribute to the school's academic struggles.

Despite these challenges, Desert Trails Preparatory Academy's diverse student population is a strength that the school should leverage to provide a culturally responsive education. With targeted interventions and a focus on the school's bright spots, such as the strong performance of 8th-grade students, the school has the potential to improve its overall academic outcomes and better serve the needs of its community.
