I attended this school when I was young, now i'm in high school in Oklahoma, and people out here are surprised I speak proper this school is truly a remarkable experience the teachers are loving and caring and the things they teach you stick with you.I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to give their child a better education.

I have two children attending Katz E.S. The teachers truly care about each of their students. Katz has a strong focus on literacy and writing skills, essential components of a successful student.

My child attended Katz from K-1st grades. Although her time there was short, she had an excellent education while there! Both her Kindgergarten and her First grade teachers went above and beyond and I can only hope she continues to have the same wonderful experience throughout the rest of her education!! Unfortunately, the Kindergarten teacher has moved to another Clark County school however, her first grade teacher still teaches there....Way to Go, Mr. Gusmerotti! :)

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.
