Welcome to the Desert Shadows Middle School

Diamondbacks Demand Deeper Comprehension 

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.
