Uniform & Dress Code

Desert Heights has a uniform and dress code policy to allow students to focus on professionalism and academic excellence while promoting a feeling of unity among all students. The uniform serves to unify our students as one community of learners, irrespective of our diverse backgrounds. It is created to allow families the freedom to purchase uniforms from any source convenient to their local and financial circumstances. Finally, the uniform frees our students to pursue their intellectual and moral development as individuals, without the distractions of fad and fashion. These are uniform style clothes that are available at all major clothing stores to assist with parents and families. 

Desert Heights has Daily and Formal (7th-12th) uniform days along with Spirit and College Awareness Days!
