In collaboration with our community and all other stakeholders, Desert Heights Charter Schools will provide a rigorous, standards based academic environment through a balance of intensive, compassionate teaching. We are dedicated to the development of vibrant, socially-responsible individuals who possess the essential life skills necessary for success.


As well as offering a high quality of teaching and extra-curricular activities to our students, we also have a commitment to ensure that our students receive the best guidance and support to insure they feel happy and safe here and are therefore able to thrive and achieve academically.

Meet our President: Mark Jiles
In order to sustain these core values, our community must work together to create the optimum conditions for our student’s success. Collaboration, communication and a common purpose will be absolutely essential to maintaining the high standards we have all come to expect from Desert Heights Schools. An old African Proverb states that “It takes a whole village to raise a child.” As we strive to reiterate our expectations for Academic Excellence, Integrity of Character and Social Awareness, as we strive to encourage our elementary aged students to be great HOWLERS, as we strive to lay the foundation for college, career and life readiness, we will need your help and continued support. Our Desert Heights community will be our village!   Sincerely, Mark Jiles
Our students wear uniforms…
Except in this picture.  They are not wearing uniforms.  They will probably have detention because they are not wearing their uniform.
We like when students study.
But these kids will probably have detention too.  They are not wearing their uniforms either.
