Moved here from north Las Vegas 4 years ago. Such a tremendous difference in the school here! All three of my girls have attended mpk and all have loved it! It's great to have teachers that care! We love Martha P. King!!!

I just had to get out of my way to mention that Mrs Rogers is a wonderful 3rd grade teacher. She once told me that she wishes she had more time in the day to dedicate to each one of the kids in her class just so that she could help them learn the subjects better. Her heart is in the right place and it shows. Wish there were more teachers like her.

The teachers, along with the curriculum, were everything I hoped for my children to experience, and more. They really cared about the students, succeeded in maintaining great discipline, and also encouraged patriotism, which many schools these days sadly lack. It really deserves the great ratings it receives.

I have had 2 children in this school.Overall I believe it to be a below average school.I am a firm believer of honesty and discipline,which this school has very little of.The school district has changed tremendously and I realize there is only so much a school can and cannot do.However,if I had more children of this age,they would not go this school.Both of my children cried off and on for three years that they did not want to go to school ever again.I now have two children who absolutely hate school who came out of this school.I a firm believer of home schooling as children cannot get the education they deserve through a public school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
