  • My children attended there for several years. Once we moved out of the area we realized how bad Desert Harbor was. One teacher even said my daughter would not amount to anything. A math teacher. It's funny how she's taking college honor classes in high school. My son wasn't given the extra tutoring he needed. Was told he could work on his assignments on the picnic table on his recess if he's not able to complete during class. I would not recommend this school. Even when dropping off my kids each morning you can see how unhappy the staff is there. No one ever says "good morning".

  • I love this school! The staff and students are amazing! We were at Country Meadows 2 years ago and it was miserable! I am so glad that we moved out of that school! My children are getting the education they need with the teaches having faith in them. Whereas at Country Meadows, the staff just don't seem to care, have no ambition.Country Meadows is a sorry school. But we love Desert Harbor!
