My children love this school and I have found that the teachers that interact with me do care about the kids. The principal is great and very aware of all his students.

If your child is physically or mentally challenged, don't come here. The administration is only interested in test scores and looking good on paper. Exceptional children, gifted or otherwise, are overlooked. The staff is inflexible and unaccomodating. They do what is merely required by law and nothing more and are expert at justifying their limitations by quoting the law and their understaffing and overwork. Bottom line, your child will suffer educationally if he attends this school.

This school is nice. The best teacher by far at that school is Mrs. Chandler. It is very sad that she is leaving. I wish that she wouldn't leave.

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.
