Turning Talents Into Possibilities: Project Y.E.S.
Since the start of the academic year, Desert Star has led a new vision with Project Y.E.S. - turning talents into possibilities.
The program develops students to believe in themselves, work towards goals and take dreams off the shelf. Hard work is the key, but everything’s possible.
Starting with kindergartners through middle school, all students will participate in talent development and building thinking and problem-solving skills within their daily curriculum. The curriculum involved has been awarded for six consecutive years by the National Association for Gifted Children.

Arizona Service Project: Building A Future Together

We envision a community without substandard housing, where multiple generations live in safe, sustainable homes.
