School Description

Desert Winds High School is a dynamic school committed to serving our community through transforming the learning process for students who have found themselves in need of an alternate pathway to successful completion of their high school careers.  We are redefining intelligence by allowing our students to direct their own learning pathway.  Our team works together by combining best practices with blended strategies suited for our goals!! Students work together with the staff and their Success Coaches to develop personal goals and monitor/modify those goals throughout their attendance.  We offer opportunities for increased engagement, real-time feedback, flexible use of time, and individual pacing.  Our students are transformed through the development of internal motivation and personal pride.  They gain skills that not only prepare them for life-long learning, but also can be applied to the rest of their lives; such as, time-management and self-management.  We offer a non-traditional learning environment that uses multi-purpose learning spaces to create an atmosphere of achievement.  Our goal is to actively engage students and their families into the process of learning.  At Desert Winds you are guaranteed an academic path that is suited just for you with mastery of the content as the shuttle to your future.
