Desert Moon School Ratings & Reviews

January 11, 2013 Submitted by a parent
I am so disappointed with this school. I think the teachers are goodt but the principal has weak leadership and turns her eyes from the problems in her school.My son has been bullied and assaulted several times with no action from the principal. This is not a safe place for your kids. The behavior on several buses are so dangerous that I wont let my children ride them any longer. Even with great teachers there is only so much they can do.

In light of the meeting regarding adding "TROUBLED" high school students to Desert Moon, WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO OUR LITTLE ONES? There is bulling at the school now, can you imagine having (already marked) DELINQUENT high school students added to the mix? OH MY Goodness! Time to review other school options. What is wrong with the Board of Education? Put the delinquents in jail, they can have great structure behind bars.

I have to respond the "only speak up when complaining" comment... yes, that is true; not many give praise as easily as they complain; but believe me, other than my son's teacher this year (and his 2nd grade teacher) I have not had much to praise about. I AM involved; at least used to be - I voluteered, I was at Movie Night every Friday, back then the teachers, staff and faculty knew who I was when I walked on campus; now I don't even get acknowledged. Another parent and I made the same comment, "it doesn't even feel like our school anymore." Where is the new "friendly" staff? PTSA is filled with the most unfriendly, unwelcoming group of people I have come across yet. What happened to the fundraisers and the Santa Shop for the kids, this year? The previous staff were friendlier and welcoming. I will say, I am proud of the "B" rating and am hopeful with the Common Core Standards, we'll be able to keep it! And I am very happy with the Arts Academy; because of the Academy, I did not move my son to another school; I am hopeful it gets better each year. And in light of recent events, security needs to be tightened, I have walked through the front doors unnoticed many times!!

I want to say something to all parents reading these reviews and trying to make a deicsion about which school to enroll their children in. Please remember that people are much more likely to complain than to praise! Desert Moon School has had it's share of problems, and like every school it also has many wonderful things about it. The principal has worked very hard to bring the school rating up to a B, has brought in a new team of teachers that are very committed to the kids, and is implementing the new Arts Academy. This school has great families, there isn't any pressure to 'keep up with the Jones', and you always feel welcome on the campus. You will always find a school to meet your expectations if you are involved, form a relationship with the teachers, and let everyone know that you have high expectations of your child, their teacher, and the school. Many parents only show their face for teacher conferences or if their child get in trouble. They aren't aware of the discipline structure or homeowrk policy, and they only speak up when they want to complain. I'm here to say that Desert Moon is a good school...spend a day on the campus, sit in on a class, you'll see!

I just have to say I am very disappointed to see that Desert Moon has such poor ratings! We moved in to this schools zoning and decided not to have our son attend because of the rating and the unfriendly and unhelpful from office staff. The Dysart district just received special accreditation from AdvanceED AND have implemented the Arts Academy at Desert Moon...I sure hope this helps this school because it is very frustrating that our child cannot go to a school because it is so poorly ranked. I HOPE Dysart administration gets it together to figure what is going on at Desert Moon. Signed a VERY disappointed parent.
