My kids enjoy this school very much, but they don't like standard student attire. The staff is very good about dealing with bullying and the kids are very friendly. The PTA is very well established and they do a lot of fund raising including a FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT which my kids love.

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.
