The faculty and staff of Desert Ridge Junior High School welcomes our students and parents to another exciting school year.
The 2014/2015 school year marks our fourteenth year of academic excellence. We encourage our ‘Rattler Families’ to become involved in all aspects of our school community. Desert Ridge Junior prides itself on offering our students a well-rounded combination of outstanding academics, arts, and athletics. To that end, 2014/2015 promises to be another great year for our Rattlers!
At Desert Ridge Junior High School, students, parents, and educators share responsibility for quality education, academic excellence, and character. Desert Ridge Junior High School provides a positive and accepting environment, which empowers all students in their academic, social, and physical pursuits as well-rounded life long learners. "Rattlers Go the Distance" as they demonstrate trustworthiness, responsibility, respect, fairness, citizenship, and caring.
