Posted December 5, 2013

We are really pleased with my daughter's teachers. Any issues we have had, have been over the over testing that is mandated by the State and Federal Governments, not the teachers. I too found that a lot of parents do not show up or involve themselves. It is sad, but it indicative of the community which is mostly middle and lower income families.

Our school community strives to encourage student, staff, family, and community involvement. We are a fantasic place to learn and grow!

My three children have or are attending this school and they are wonderful. The teachers I have had experience with have really cared for the success of my children.

I have experienced this school with my four children and can tell you they bend over backwards to help students achieve success.

I find this school to be the best in the district. The parent involvement is a little lower than I would like it to be ,but that is not the schools fault.

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.
