I just moved to Las Vegas back in Oct, and my 7 yr is enrolled here, She loves it, she has a wonderful teacher, Mr M, who is excellent with her. Mr M is very caring, and she loves how he teaches, my daughter has ADHD, and it is very hard for her to focus, Mr M works with her, and she has excelled.

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.
