Desert Hills High School Begins Classes on August 5, 2013
GILBERT – Desert Hills High School, a small, safe, challenging and tuition-free public school located at 1515 South Val Vista Drive in Gilbert, will start classes for the 2013 – 2014 school year on Monday, August 5th.
With less than 400 students in grades 9 – 12, DHHS offers its students personalized one-on-one attention and concentrated instruction with the goal of making sure every student is fully prepared for college and for life. Desert Hills is also proud to offer students the very same kinds of high school experiences they’d find in a bigger, more crowded school. Campus activities include:
· No-cut championship sports for girls and boys
· Cheer and dance
· National Honor Society
· Student Council
· Journalism and Yearbook
· Advanced study and college credit
· Clubs like Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and Future Farmers of America (FFA)
· College planning and career prep
· And an award-winning agriculture program.
DHHS, a member of The Leona Group, operates on an innovative four-day block schedule that runs Monday through Thursday, with Fridays devoted to one-on-one help, class make-ups, and advanced work.
“Our expectations are high – we believe these students, after they graduate from Desert Hills, will attend community colleges or universities,” said school leader Art Madden. “With such a small school, our teachers give every student the time and attention they need. Any student who works hard will succeed.”
The enrollment application is available online. Parents and students are also invited to tour the campus, call the office at 480-813-1131 or visit online at www.deserthillshs.com.
