Academies at Desert Shadows Middle School help create an environment in which students can feel invested and engaged in a program that suits their interests. When students have a talent and passion in a specific area, are surrounded by others who share that same talent and passion, and are mentored by a teacher who is equally as talented and passionate, the outcomes are exceptional.
The Academies become a "home base" for students. Our teachers are exceptional. The curriculum is exciting. Students leave these programs truly prepared for success in high school and beyond.
