  • Mountainside Middle School and Desert Mountain High School have been accepted as the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme World Schools. In preparation for authorization, Mountainside and Desert Mountain have sent administrators and educators to IB MYP training workshops as well as creating the school schedule and course catalog to reflect the changes that the IB Middle Years Programme requires.  All sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students at Mountainside are learners in the IB MYP program. Students entering Desert Mountain in grades 9 and 10 may apply to the IB MYP Program. Desert Mountain will offer this program as a school within a school.
