Des Arc School District Reviews

I love Des arc but I would like to see the Food and some of the older teachers to move on. Des arc is an awesome school super fun pep rally’s when you’re involved as a cheerleader and the parents and most stundents are very involved. I feel as if I’m very ready for college after meeting with our awesome councilor and I’m so very thankful for how this school has formed me into the person I am today.

I would like to see more funding go into building repairs and additional educational resources. It would be nice to see a pay raise in the teachers and staff to demonstrate the appreciation we have for them and to minimize the shuffling of new staff year after year.
I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone, honestly. I feel like a student could learn much better somewhere else. The teachers try their hardest to help students learn, but they're not to good at keeping a classroom under control.
