WELCOME!

On behalf of the administration, faculty, staff and amazing coaches and advisers of Desert Hills High School, I’d like to welcome you to our THUNDER family. Desert Hill’s tradition of excellence athletically as well as academically is unprecedented. Since opening its doors in 2008, we have won over forty one State Titles in Thunder Athletics!  

Desert Hills is currently a member of Region 9 in the 4A classification along with Dixie, Snow Canyon, Pine View, Hurricane, Cedar, Crimson Cliffs and Canyon View high schools. It is one of the most competitive regions in Utah. As a member of the Utah High School Activities Association, the Thunder participates in the following sports: Volleyball, Girls and Boys Cross Country, Girls and Boys Golf, Girls and Boys Soccer, Football, Girls and Boys Tennis, Girls and Boys Wrestling, Girls and Boys Swim, Girls and Boys Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Drill, and Girls and Boys Track and Field. We also participate in Music and our Theater programs. We provide a competitive Cheer squad, Tempest Line Drill Team and many other clubs and activities.

We are excited for your interest in our school. Please come out and support our amazing student athletes.

Good luck to all of our students,  teachers and coaches!
