Desert Hills Middle school is a very interesting place to go to school. Most of the teachers are great along with most of the other staff but its more a place to learn and not to have fun. Some of the principles are very strict so sometimes rules that are ridiculous are put to test.

What I like about desert hills middle school was the creativity you got to have in classes. What I would like to see changed is the amount of clubs offered to the students.
Good have teachers who would help the children out who have learning disabilities.
