Welcome to the Desert Shadows Middle School website, proud home of the Diamondbacks. We are one of 10 schools in the Nogales Unified School District located in Nogales, Arizona. You’ll find us about an hour south of Tucson.

Our school serves students in the 6th through 8th grades. Our teachers are dedicated to the students in their care and set high standards for continued growth. We are proud to offer many activities for students here on campus and can boast small class sizes. We feel that everyone succeeds in an environment where each student receives individual attention.
Dear Desert Shadows families,

Welcome to Desert Shadows Middle School.  On behalf of the staff, I am glad to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year! We are looking forward to a productive year.  

Our goal this year is to become an “A” school. We, as the administration and staff, are committed to working together as educators and parents to ensure our students fully achieve their potential 
Please review your child’s planner for important information about the school’s policies. In addition, newsletters and calendars, will be mailed monthly to keep you informed as to what is happening at Desert Shadows. As a parent or guardian you have access to your child’s academic performance through PowerSchool.

Throughout the school year you will have several opportunities to meet with your student’s teachers. On Thursday, August 22 our Open House will be held from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. All parents and students are invited. We look forward to this meet and greet opportunity. 

As the new principal at Desert Shadows I welcome all. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (520) 377-2646. I thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.


Christopher Miranda,
