The curriculum centers on providing techniques and strategies to help students control their own educational future or be prepared to join the workforce upon graduation.
Desert Rose Academy Charter School offers not only the skills required to graduate high school, but provides the skills for students to be ready for the transition to college as well as explore various career choices. In order to graduate from high school in the state of Arizona all students must complete the state credit requirements as well as pass the series of AIMS test in writing, math, and reading.
