Principal Hogan is the biggest issue of this school. He doesn't really care when the teachers are doing wrong, he over stresses the good teachers. When you talk to him about a concern it goes in one ear and out another. For some reason he seems set on keeping people out of the school, even student teachers. Get rid of the principal and the school would likely do much better all around. We however, are taking our children out of this school.

The PTO here at this school is in serious help. They have no communication with parents. Nor have any clue how a fundraiser should be ran. If your doing a fundraiser and have an estimated date of delivery TELL THE PARENTS. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE DAY IT COMES IN AND HAVE STUDENTS CALL TO TELL US WE HAVE TO PICK EVERYTHING UP 30 MINUTES BEFORE SCHOOL IS OUT. Also they blame parents for not helping out but they do not call parents that have offered their help. Office personnel are nit very friendly either..

We have a lot of wonderful teachers that care very much about the kids.

I think that the teachers need to quit trying to be the students parents and worry more about teaching. In this school the teachers are more worried about trying to tell the parents how to discipline their children and raise them instead of letting the parents know what the children need help with in the classroom. The principal is not even a principal he is more worried about talking on the phone and wondering outside to talk and visit than really care what the students and teachers are doing. I personnally have tried to talk to him about my concerns with the way the teachers are with children and he doesn't care about any of it. I think that this school needs to have someone come in to be a good principal and not worry about trying to be the students parents they already have parents.

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.
