About Desert View Schools

Desert View Schools are continuously listed among the best charter schools in Yuma County based upon academics, culture and diversity, family surveys, health and safety and many other important indicators. We believe character always counts, integrity always matters, and positive relationships with everyone are important. 

Founded in 2000, Desert View Schools has expanded in campus, increased in culture and continues to promote positive, healthy and caring relationships.

Non-profit public charter schools receive state funding, but unlike district schools, they operate independently under a contract (or “charter”) and don’t receive the same funding opportunities (e.g. no property taxes). They operate as a non-profit community organization uniquely committed to serving their community of learners and meeting the needs of their families and employees in special ways.
