All 4 of my children attend Desert Christian Schools. They are well prepared academically, spiritually and physically for college and life beyond DCS. I cannot say enough good things about Desert Christian Schools.

Our children have been involved with this school for over 10 years and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a safe, loving and Bible-based school for any child - pre-school through high school. The staff is excellent, the tuition is reasonable and the educational opportunities are outstanding. Our children did multiple sports at the high school and the coaches put emphasis on spiritual growth and attitudes as well as physical performance, something that is sorely missing from most public, and some private, schools.
