FIND A DIFFERENT CHARTER. The teachers in this school are wonderful, especially the kindergarten teachers. As of the principal and other administrative they are just cruel and horrible. The Principal embezzled $15K, took the school credit cards and fundings and bought personal things and christmas presents such as kindles, DVDs, video games, etc. There has been harsh environment in the school. They have proof of all these allegations. I do not want my child in this environment no longer. The staff and the principal try to bribe you to be on there side. This school is all over the news if you want to read further.

My son has been with this school since they were with Imagine. The teachers have always been great. The school has been great up until now. The principal (Connie Jordan) has been found by the state to have broken laws and embezzled money from the school with the board leader's (Christina Fuentes) help. Those that have spoken up against the principal have been fired, forced to quit or put on leave. The state has recommend that Connie Jordan and Christina Fuentes resign or the school will most likely lose it's charter.

When I reviewed this school last year, I gave it 5 out of 5. Not so this year. The teachers are still wonderful, but the administration has ruined the school. They opened the new high school and all of the focus is there. The teachers are under so much pressure from administration and are afraid for their jobs most of the time. The principal fired a teacher in my son's classroom in front of the entire class, during class, for turning in her two week notice. The principal has gone into classrooms and interrogated students, including my son, demanding answers in writing, as to what other teachers have 'said about her'. Discipline, which used to be swift and fair, is none existant. When the teachers try to discipline certain students, the principal blocks them from doing so and revokes the discipline that was placed. I am heartbroken that the school my son loved has been destroyed.

The teachers in this school are so dedicated and caring. The communication between myself and my child's teacher was unlike any other! I always felt comfortable and knew that my child was not an unknown face in the crowded halls of the public school system. This school is its own little community, where my child, and all students are well known members. I love it.

Small class size and caring teachers and staff is what makes this school top notch ! My Son has had the best school year here. Cant wait for the new Quest Prep High School.

My child attended when the school was Imagine in the Valle. Now that they have broken away from Imagine, I'm sure it's even better. Extremely caring principal, teachers and school board. Unfortunately, there is a great deal of time spent on CRT prep that, I feel, should be spent on educating the children, instead. I feel the language arts curriculum could be more interesting & educational than sample test materials. That being said, I understand there is great pressure for a public charter school to perform well on the CRT's. The teachers are GREAT teachers and dedicated to the school's success and the well-being of all children. Bullying is not tolerated and immediately addressed at the highest level. The school board is very dedicated and deserves a huge amount of respect for standing up to Imagine Scools Inc and having the bravery to go out on their own. Obviously, what's best for the children is their priority. I hope they now take this freedom to be more innovative in their choices of curriculum. My child loved everything about this school and every staff member. I'm sorry we left for a school closer to home.

My son went from HATING school to LOVING school when he changed to Imagine Valle. The teachers care, the atmosphere is positive, and I am thankful every single day that we found this school!

I Love to see my kids smiles when I drop them off. They no longer drag their feet to go to school. Teachers make learning fun & I love the idea of my kids loving school! Imagine Valle, keep up the work!!

A physical structure/building does not make a school great. Its excellent teachers, strong leadership of the principal, and challenging academic programs create a school's foundation and are what make a school great. Imagine School In The Valle is more than just a GREAT educational institution. We are a family. The teachers love, nurture and educate my child as if he were theirs. They are constantly challenging my son and piquing his interests and intelligence. I would not send my child to any other school!

We feel very fortunate to be a part of this school. The principal, staff, and parents are all very committed. Communication is excellent between staff and families. Art, language, computer lab, library and other classes have been included in the curriculum this year. The school works with children that exceed grade level work as well as with those who need a little extra help. Imagine Valle offers a wonderful, safe, and positive environment for the children.

I love the family atmosphere this school provides. My child gets individual attention and is challenged with additional work despite the large classroom sizes.

Wasn't bad when my child started, but they have yet to do all the things that would make them a better school than the rest. 2 years have gone by and still no school of their own. Needless to say ... not what I expected. I just hope that when I do put my child back into the public system, he is not behind.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the High School Proficiency Examination (HSPE) to assess high school students in reading, writing, math and science. The HSPE is a high school graduation requirement. The HSPE 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.

The different student groups are identified by the Nevada Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
