I think that the teacher quality is fantastic. The school overall is great. I was worried at first when we moved into the area but after seeing other schools there is no doubt that this is the best place to be.

Teachers are great but principal and atmosphere are very intimidating for parents to visit the school.

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.
