  • i have been attending Desert Edge since my freshman yea, and i can say from experiance, IT IS AMAZING!!! with outstanding staff, great courses added often, and many teachers have won awards for "outstanding teacher of the month," for me, it is the place to be. i am an active member and captain of the swim and dive team (during my senior year), i have come to see how much the school has blossemed to help accept all students for who they are and also accept students for who they want to be. the pride that our school has for our team and the outpour of help offered when needed, i believe that DESERT EDGE HIGH SCHOOL, is the school of the (resent) past, the present, and the future!
