Desert Canyon Elementary School

Desert Canyon School - McDowell Mountain Ranch
Sitting in the heart of McDowell Mountain Ranch is Desert Canyon Elementary School. This is an A-rated school with 19 teachers with a Master’s degree.

Mandarin Dual Immersion Program gives students the ability to learn a second language while being immersed in it for 50% of their school day. Desert Canyon Elementary offers Toddlers-5th grade students the opportunity to be exposed to the Mandarin language and Chinese culture. Students receive 30 minutes of Mandarin instruction once a week exposing them to the culture, language songs and dance, Chinese characters, and how it ties into our Social Studies standards.

One of the fun extracurricular clubs Desert Canyon Elementary has is The Garden Club.
This exciting new venture at DCES has had kids building three raised beds outside the 3rd-grade cove and starting an after-school garden club. The kids planted beets, kale, onions, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, and many herbs such as rosemary, mint, and thyme. Gardening in the desert is a challenging, but rewarding endeavor. The spring gardening group was able to harvest kale and carrots, enough to share and eat!
The spring group has planted cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, and zucchini. Flowers have been planted as well to brighten the area and attract pollinators like bees and hummingbirds.  
Next year the garden club may add a pollinator garden around the side of the garden on the north wall.

Desert Canyon Elementary School is a treasured asset for the community of McDowell Mountain Ranch.
