This school and district are bot supportive of children with special needs. My son is on a 504 plan and has failed the standardized testing every year. They claim there is nothing wrong and offer no suggestions or support to assist him. They just pass him though each grade. The district is basically the same. If you have a special needs child do not go to a school in the Deer Valley district. They do not care about your issues.
