Peaceful, Eco-literate, Empowered Students

We are a FREE public charter school for grades K-8

High Desert provides a safe, nurturing school environment that fosters independence, problem solving, and great works in our students. We offer tools to explore the universe through Montessori’s Cosmic Curriculum: the purpose to link all areas of human knowledge. We encourage all of our students to be participating members of a socially-conscious and green community by inspiring them to be critical thinkers and capable of reflection, communication, and action.
