I love this school. We may be moving soon, and I will be sad to leave it behind. It is a little over-crowded, but the school is also fairly small in structure. Mrs. Samples has to be about the best principal I have ever seen. She truly cares for the children.

We have 4 children ranging from college to elementary school. Sutro Elementary is the best school my kids ever attended. The princapal at the school is the best I have ever seen. She is always out on the playground with the kids, in the classes, she knows most of the kids by their first name and most of all who they are as children. We were very sadden when new boundries were drawn and we had to change schools!

Sutro Elem. is a good school. I was a student there back when it first opened. The school may be over crowded but I know that the school has very good staff and the teachers are good at teaching large groups of kids. The satff I know may not be able to control everything but the school tries to do their best at helping each and every student.

This school has several problems, they are over crowed and they problem with security and they also have a problem communicating to the parents. This school is relativity new and it is a shame that it is so over crowed. My daughter is in 1st grade and she has 23 students in her class, her teacher is expected to teach 23 kids how to read. This is next to impossible if one child is having problems. No child left behind is a joke to me. Ther need to make some serious changes for this school to be a four star school in my book.

My daughter was a kindergarten student last year. Her teahcer was Ms. Kirby. This school is great. Friendly staff, safe, a couple of janitors are mean, but what do they know? Very good school cant wait to have her go there until her 5th year! And my little one starts in 2 years. They incourage parent participation and I myself volunteered a lot. Booster club does tons, and even got the kids an ice cream party for bringing in box tops. The only bad thing is it is very crowded. 28 kids in the morning class, and they even have to have two teachers share a room. some kids were transfered over to dayton elementary. But all in all 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.
