I have two children at this school. One in 2nd and the other in Kinder. I have been blessed with being able to actively contribute my time volunteering here. I have met every teacher and I have yet to meet an unkind, hard working, dedicated soul in the entire school. My children thrive here. The administration is open, honest and dedicated to making every child's experience great. I love this school.
The ratio of teacher to student is hardly 1:19. Expectations are high yet patience is low. Fast-paced and stressful environment for teachers and students. Herd mentality with no room for individualism unless you test into GATE and get a field trip to the dump.
Nate Mack just received a 5-star rating from the state of Nevada! This is the highest rating awarded by the Nevada Department of Education and is based on student achievement and student academic growth. Teachers, students, and staff are working hard at Nate Mack!
We have had two children at this school for the last two years. We have had experience with four other schools and this is by far the very best! We absolutely love the administration and staff - everyone is amazingly friendly, caring, and fair. The principal really deserves kudos for what a great job she does - she actually cares about the students!!! Our children have never been happier, and we have seen tremendous improvements in their attitude towards school - for example, they look forward to going every morning, we have NO problems with them doing their homework, and they havenothing bad to say about anyone ther. It's a wonderful school and we are so happy to have found it.
We are so happy to be back at Nate Mack! We made the mistake of going to Coral Academy of Science last year. It was a terrible decision. My kids are so much happier at Nate Mack. We love the teachers, the staff, the parent involvement, and all the activities it's like going back home!
