Message From Principal Gretchen Hann

  • Dear Desert Edge Community:

    I am excited for the opportunity to serve our community as the Principal at Desert Edge High School. I have worked in the Agua Fria High School District for the past 15 years in many roles, most recently as an Assistant Principal at Verrado High School. I have enjoyed my Interim time at DEHS and quickly fell in love with the students, staff, and campus. I am honored that I have been chosen and gladly accept this role.

    I am passionate about building on the successes at Desert Edge and narrowing our focus on high-quality instruction, impacting student achievement, connecting our students to their community in positive ways, and providing them with opportunities to find their path. I look forward to partnering with our families and community to engage students.

    It is vital to students’ successes that we work closely with our families and community. I want to hear from you. Please join me on Thursday, March 24, 2022, at 8:15 AM for Pastries with the Principal in our library. This meet and greet will enable me to hear your thoughts for the future of DE and what you as parents/guardians want for your children.

    It is our shared goal that the rigor, relevance, and relationships at Desert Edge High School remain strong. I firmly believe in the philosophy of leading by doing what is best for students. I am committed to your child’s success and am excited to be a part of the Scorpion family.

    Gretchen Hann
