I am very happy with Desert View Academy. My children are safe. My children are receiving the best education. My children are very happy at DVA. I am confident that this school and what it offers is what's best for my children. Thank you DVA.

Academics are great! Teachers are wonderful! Everything else is the best! HOWEVER...admistration is the worst I have EVER seen! Lack of knowledge, understanding, organization, and competency is more than enough to think about restructuring this entire administration. Beginning with the principal who treats her staff like third class citizens! I wouldn't comment at all if I weren't involved and didn't see this type of nonsense continue on a daily basis. Wake up Yuma Board of Education and re-evaluated this school's administration!!!
