Desert Sky Community School Ratings & Reviews

December 12, 2018 Submitted by a parent
The primary purpose of Desert Sky Community School is to educate children through experiential learning, including the arts and storytelling. With a developmental approach to the whole child, our school will address the different needs of different children. Our school strives to be an aesthetically rich environment as well as a safe space for development as a whole person.Community is a central value that extends beyond the classroom in our school: it is how we feel and act toward one another. Desert Sky shares a value of connection as a school community, and connection to the larger community of friends, neighbors and colleagues. We value the family attention to children which is evident to teachers. We also value the inner growth of all of the members of our community: students, parents, teachers and volunteers. Shared responsibility, especially among faculty and in Board meetings and Parent Council, allow decisions to be made in clarity, with calm and equanimity.We invite families and friends to join us in celebrating our seasonal festivities as a community such as our Festival of Strength and Courage, The Lantern Walk, The Spiral Garden of Light, Fasching, and our May Festival.At Desert Sky, we strive to be environmentally responsible. We choose to garden without the use of pesticides or other toxins, to use environmentally safe cleaning products, to use low-impact, renewable construction materials whenever possible, to compost and recycle and to conserve energy and water.As much as possible, we encourage healthy organic whole foods and lunches. We recognize the impact on the environment of transporting our children long distances to school and actively support carpooling efforts. Our goal is to create an environment that encourages everyone to become more conscious of the need to make choices that support a future where all living things share in a world of abundance. We welcome students, parents, faculty, and staff of all races, sexual orientations, faiths and creeds.

Forced prayer, and zero academic merit. This school should absolutely not be able to operate.

Poor. The administration at this school seemed uninterested in helping a student struggling with anger issues. They did whatever they could to remove the student from the school without attempting to understand and correct the behavior. My partners children were pushed out of the school without any real attempt to help solve the problem.

I had researched Waldorf education and was very excited by this concept. The faults In th school don't lie in this but in the fact that many to the teachers have not actually been trained formally in the Waldorf method. Additionally they are trying to increase their numbers to fund and expand the school but then children are not being properly guided in their activities which creates an Unsafe environment. I was told in. I sorus occasions about othe todos bars behavior by a teacher in front of the kids and witnessed witch hunts take place against these kids. The kids would be scolded then the teacher would roll her eyes and the. comment to me in front of the kids about th child. The Kids were not directed at all which does allow for imagination but again the to her just reacted and scolded, never trying to guide the Kids. The environment is unsafe across the board and Numerous parents have withdrawn their kids due to the toxic environment. 6 kids in one class so far this year alone that so am aware of.

"I don't think the administration or the staff are trying to hurt kids. However, some of the kids will certainly not be helped by their policies. If you have a boy born after April 15th then expect them to keep him in kindergarten for an extra year. Unfortunately, this ""policy"" is not brought up until your first parent teacher conference after you are enrolled and have attended a few months. The next problem is that they don't ""teach"" in kindergarten but they expect your kid to reach a certain level of competency through sing alongs, etc. As a result they may keep your child in kindergarten for years. The front desk lady boasted that her child repeated kindergarten 3 times. They view it as a ""staging"" area. However, in this waiting room your child will not be taught to read. What they are actually doing is ""academic red shirting"". If you are going to go to this school it would help you to research this topic. 60 Minutes has done a great piece on it as well as many reputable journals and academics. What it does accomplish is that it inflates their testing grades because they have so much older kids being tested in lower grades. This helps the school get their numbers but it does not help a child to delay learning to read for years past their peers in public schools. This practice of holding back around 40% of the kindergarten class every year seems like they are robbing money from the state. If you want a visual on this see how many kids are allowed into kindergarten vs how many kids can fit into the 1st grade classroom. So, they are using the kindergarten classroom as a kind of revenue generating machine where the physical layout of the school dictates that they have to fail enough kids to have a reasonable 1st grade class to fit into the 1st grade classroom. What they are doing is wrong and possibly illegal. However, if you want to academically red shirt your child already then this is the school for you. The staff is friendly and they are clearly trying really hard and really believe in what they are doing. However, what they are doing is not based in science and probably not healthy for your child."
