New Desert Sun Academy Principal is from D-Rated School

According to Mary Beth Faller from the Arizona Republic, the new Desert Sun Academy principal is from Supai Middle School in Scottsdale Unified.


Supai Middle School is a D-Rated middle school located in south Scottsdale. Yes, that is a D you see below…


Its test scores are abominable and on the decline with 58% of its students failing AIMS Math in 2014.


Not sure why the district hired an assistant, from a middle school, from a low SES area to be the full principal, at an elementary school, in a high SES area. Desert Sun Academy truly needs some quality leadership as the school’s enrollment and achievement is in a tail spin. What do you think of the new hire for Desert Sun Academy?  Do you think this was a smart move by Dr. Burdick and the current governing board?  Do you think that this hire will play into the Cave Creek Unified Governing Board election in the fall of 2014

We will reach out to the Desert Sun Academy PTO and see if they have any thoughts.

Update:  Here is what we wrote about Desert Sun Academy in 2010.  Looks like we were right on the money…
