I've had both my daughter and son attend this school. The teachers, staff and all the office staff are outstanding. They communicate extremely well with students and parents. My kids have excellent grades and have really learned a lot from this school and have gotten a great education and outstanding foundation for their future. The school really goes out of their way to make the kids feel important, special and helps them look forward to a great future. I highly recommend this school.

Jack Dailey rocks because during I was in pre k,1,2,3 grade I learned a lot of things like adding , subtracting , multiplying ,and fractions.Now this year in accelerated 4 grade I am learning how to multiply two and three digits times two digits ,and I'm also learning how to factor out numbers it's kind of hard but I figure them out. The last thing I am learning are exponents they're kind of difficult but I'll get the hang of it.

So far my son has gone for 2 years, Miss. Kandle and Mrs. Edwards for K and 1st grade were both excellent teachers. Our son had gone to private pre K and i was not happy. We feel school is second to none as it has excellent teachers and administration. All it needs is a little parental support.

Mrs. Tharp is a rare breed in teaching... She is great, articulate, understanding, patient and all around the best one I've seen in a long time. The school has great programs and they're clean.

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.
