Our home is zoned for this school, but I cannot in good conscience send my child there. We are US citizens, and do not speak Spanish, but for all intents and purposes, this is a Spanish-speaking only school. By the school's own stats, 64.3% of the students have limited English proficiency! This is unacceptable! This school is a shining example of why public education does not work.

My daughter attentded this school . She has a learning disablity. No attention was ever payed to her needs. She is entering junior high this year. Without the skills needed to even do a simple math problem. My 5 year old is zoned for this school, and I am scared for her. Too many kids in a class, half of them don't speak english. No books, no computers, need I say more.

This school is badly in need of some new guidelines. Too much time is spend translating for the students who do not speak English. No attention whatsoever is paid to the students who are gifted and accel in school...there is no attempt to challenge these children. Children are allowed to pass to the next grade without the basic knowledge that is necessary. Which once again is holding back the other students. Also, this school is very overcrowded...there is an endless influx of people moving into the area and this school just keeps accepting everyone. This is not good for the well being of the school as a whole and hinders the learning process. Have they never heard of Clinton Class Size Reduction?!?

Too much attention on the children who do not speak English. The children who are bright and intelligent are being extremely held back!

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.
