Does anyone know the sign up dates? I need to sign up my son as a new student for 1st grade.

Great teachers, small classes. My kids get a lot of one-on-one attention. The teachers are very good about keeping parents informed and quickly return emails and answer questions. Great 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.
