Dear Candidate,

Thank you for considering Desert View Academy (DVA). I’m certain that this is an exciting time for you, as you ponder the right place to make your impact on young lives.

If you are looking to join a team of highly effective educators, who believe that character counts, then you would love our DVA team. I cannot speak highly enough about the people who dedicate themselves to the students in our school community.

Desert View Academy (DVA) is a K-5 public charter school located in sunny Yuma, Arizona. We have the honor of being in the Guinness World Record book as the Sunniest Place on Earth! 

We recently received the honor of being named a National Blue Ribbon School for 2021 in the category of Exemplary Highly Performing Schools. DVA was one of five schools in Arizona to receive this distinguished award.

We also earned the distinction of being an Arizona A-Rated school in 2022. In spite of the recent pandemic, our Eagles continue to soar!

Our home is a beautiful, secure campus, constructed in 2015. DVA is a top-rated school, focusing not only on success in academics but also raising up students of strong moral character. We have state-of-the-art technology integrated into every classroom to equip students with the skills necessary to succeed in today’s world. Each new teacher is assigned a mentor to assist with the transition to DVA. Class sizes are limited to 28 students, and when full, students are put on a waiting list.
