DeSoto School District Reviews

I think the administration at Desoto is very outgoing and they try to interact with every student. Our teachers are invested in the students, and they are committed to provide a challenging but helpful learning environment for everyone. The assemblies foster love between the students and encourage them to become involved. Additionally, our school has a wide variety of activities and programs to participate in. I myself am involved in several programs that are teaching me how to find a career, help my community, and help others reach their full potential.

Have 2 kids attending school in the district. The teachers are so wonderful and really go above and beyond to communicate with parents, and to help the kids. The kids love school and one is 14 yrs old! Any issues have been taken care of promptly and professionally. Love everything about the district.
I love how tight everyone is at my highschool. It is nothing like the stereotypical high school's were a bully is shoving people into lockers. At DeSoto, if a stranger drops their books on the floor, five or six people stop to help them pick their stuff up. I love the comrodory and the school spirit we have, it is an overall wonderful place to be.
