You Can Make a Difference!
Desert Jr/Sr High School, in order to provide ample opportunities for our students, has always relied on generous donations from our community. Enrichment opportunities that have been made available to our students include sports, field trips, STEM, arts, and items for academic enrichment, and we are extremely grateful for past support from parents, alumni, and friends of the School.
Funding per pupil in California continues to lag behind most other states, so until this improves, small schools like DHS must operate on an extremely limited budget, and so we must continue to rely on the generosity of the community to provide our students with all the elements of a rich, well-rounded education. If you feel moved to provide support for the students of Desert Jr/Sr High School, please refer to the following list of items that are particularly needed:
Donate Your Used Toner/Inkjet Printer Cartridges
– We earn money for used cartridges. Money raised will help purchase a 3D printer for the Math Department. Please drop off empty name-brand toner and inkjet printer cartridges to the Desert High School’s main office, room 22, or room 17.

Funds Needed for New Desks
– Ms Dooley (CTE Graphic Design Teacher) currently has desks that are falling apart and they are fixed against the wall so she doesn’t have the ability to arrange the room for optimum learning. She wants to make sure her students have the materials they need to succeed, so she has created a classroom project request through DonorsChoose.org, an award-winning charity. She is seeking donations for some Ergonomic Stand Up Desks that will improve the layout of the room and improve the students’ focus and fitness while they are learning.

- Cash/check donations are always welcome and can be dropped off at the School’s main office.
Since 1954, Desert Jr/Sr High School has been preparing young men and women to be confident scholars and leaders. Your gift makes a difference in ensuring the excellence of a Desert Jr/Sr High School education.
