Desert Trails Preparatory Academy charter school opened its doors in July 2014. Prior to this date the school was known as Desert Trails Elementary school which was part of the Adelanto school district. As an independent charter school we are excited about all of the growth the scholars have made. We are excited to see continued growth in the future years.
I was a teacher at DTPA for the 2013-2014 school year. This school is a joke. Special Education services are not provided legally and the teachers work their bums off, with little to no positive feedback. Teachers are attacked and students endure a lengthy school day that burns them out. DTPA also has teachers working for the school that are not credentialed. I would stay far away from this school.
This is a great independent charter school that accepts Transitional Kindergarten up to 6th grade.
My kids have been at Desert Trails since 2008. Up until this year my kids were never bullied. I love the new Principal Mr. Mobley. I hope he is able to turn this school around. I love all the teachers that my kids have had. I do agree that we need to get MORE parents involved that we need at this school
My sister has been going to DT for her second year. She is in fifth grade and she loves her teacher but there is ALOT of bullying. Personally you run into bad teachers like you run into bad cops. Not all of them are good, but not all of them are bad either. I personally think that the problem lays more with the students AND PARENTS. Teach your kids some respect and maybe kids won't be disrupted and actually will get the opportunity to learn something. I get tired of seeing the parent protesters talking about how it's the teachers fault. NO it's the parents fault. When did it become that the teacher had to be the parent. I see a lot of rudeness with parents at the school. It's not the teachers or the staffs fault for YOUR KIDS fighting. It's only they're job to control the situation as much as possible. I also get tired of having to wait at the intersection for a long time, it's not the wait that bothers me, it's the un supervised kids walking extra slow through the cross walk and dancing in the street.
