About Desert Foothills
Desert Foothills Junior High School has a long history of excellence. Our staff is dedicated to creating a learning environment that is challenging yet balanced with the commitment to encourage every student to develop to his or her potential. Our grade level teams build a strong sense of community while maintaining high academic standards. With our newly remodeled facilities and the support of our wonderful neighborhood community, families, and phenomenal staff, Desert Foothills is a great place for kids to grow, stretch and become lifelong learners.
The Washington Elementary School District (the WESD) is committed to a learning environment that is physically, socially and emotionally safe for all students. As a part of this commitment, the WESD affirms, supports and values all students and staff and will continue to further efforts in our schools to create a welcoming, safe and inclusive learning environment for our transgender, non-binary and all LGBTQ+ students and staff.
WESD is proud to share that breakfast and lunch meals will be provided at no cost to all students throughout the 2022-2023 school year!
