The Desert Hills chapter of the National Business Honor Society will be
partnering with Gilbert Arts Academy in the upcoming school year, in order to
assist elementary students in a variety of subjects.
Desert Hills High School students began their partnership with Gilbert Arts
Academy in the 2011-2012 school year, by visiting classes in grades kindergarten
through 6th and helping students with reading and spelling assignments, along
with hands-on crafts and activities. This year, the DHHS students will be
working with their elementary partners on a monthly basis.
“This serves as a great benefit to both the high-schoolers and the elementary
students,” says National Business Honor Society Advisor Jaci Jones. “The Desert
Hills students really enjoyed mentoring the younger kids.”
Last year, Desert Hills High School was granted a charter to the National
Business Honor Society, the first high school in Arizona to receive such a
Desert Hills High School is located in Gilbert, at 1515 S. Val Vista Drive.
