Desert Sands's Portrait of a Graduate

Portrait of a Graduate

Created by students, families, staff, and community members and adopted in 2023, the Desert Sands Unified School District’s Portrait of a Graduate represents a collective vision that articulates our aspirations for every student in our district. Our Portrait of a Graduate serves as a North Star for all of our schools - guiding our efforts and actions in each classroom across DSUSD.

The Portrait of a Graduate examines:

  • The hopes, dreams, and aspirations that our community has for our young people.
  • The skills and mindsets that our children need for success in this rapidly changing and complex world.
  • The implications for the design of the learning experiences—and equitable access to those experiences—we provide in our school systems.

We are committed to supporting each student in reaching the six competencies of the DSUSD Portrait of a Graduate!
