Greetings DTPA family!  This school year is off to a wonderful start!  We are so excited to be starting a new year.  Our goal at Desert Trails Preparatory Academy has always been to promote academic achievement.  In addition, we strive to provide students with opportunities for personal growth and prepare them for a bright and successful future.  It is truly an honor to be in our fourth year, continuing to provide excellence to our community.

To our families returning, thank you for choosing DTPA as the place to educate your children.  To our new families, welcome!  There is so much to look forward to this year.  We will be continuing with our enrichment classes, expanding our school staff, and welcoming our first class of 8th graders!!!

This is going to be a very exciting year.  Each day brings with it the promise of new knowledge, wisdom, and growth. I am looking forward to many days of learning ahead!!

~Mrs. Sutton, Principal


We would like to thank all of the DTPA families for understanding and helping us ensure the safety of every scholar.  It is our top priority to keep every scholar safe; therefore, it is important that parents and guardians use their placards to pick up their child.  Placards have been issued to each scholar and additional ones may be purchased in the office for $2.00.

Please remember to bring your placard every day. You may also take a picture of your placard and show it from your phone as well. Your child’s first and last name with their grade level should be written on the placard.  You may write multiple names on one placard.

Also, we would like to ask that you please instill caution in our school parking lot.  Please drive 5 mph or less in the parking when scholars are present.  This would particularly be during drop-off and dismissal. We ask that you also respect each other during these crowded times of day as well.  We greatly appreciate it.

Again, thank you for helping us make Desert Trails Preparatory Academy a safe place for all scholars.

    The Desert Trails Preparatory Academy cheer team are victorious again!  This year’s cheer team ranged from 3rd to 6th graders who realized that cheer is a fun, but serious sport. Our girls learned quickly that cheer is not easy. With the help of Ms. Jazmyn, Ms. Angel, and Mrs. Vance, the girls practiced their sharp, rhythmic movements twice a week, no matter the weather. As competition day approached, the girls did not falter in their confidence and on March 17, 2018 they proved what their coaches already knew and performed their little hearts out. They were on sharp with their movements, in sync with each other, and hit all of their stunts. The girls gave full effort to get the win. Desert Trails was the ONLY elementary school competing against six other experienced dance/cheer teams and All-Star teams. So, when the SHARP officials called Desert Trails Preparatory Academy as SHARP Champions we knew we slayed the performance! Desert Trails Preparatory Academy Cheer team is a team of mighty stars shining extremely bright. Fear our bows!
