Academy for individualized study is a wonderful school , i was able to catch up on every credit and learn to overcome that fear of tests because at ais you test on the home work at the assigned site . Depending on the subject the tests and homework will vary on the hardness scale, some are very difficult others are easier. It has taught me so much more then a regular school ever could . At a public school there isnt that much homework, there are a largeee amount of kids in every one of your classes, and the teachers skip over important things that you could be learning at ais for those exact reasons . They haven't the time nor patience and some are very disrespectful to you , yes they are the teacher but they dont need to treat you poorly.. At ais you can have an online campus where the teachers help you personally there or you can get tutoring at the actual campus and everyone is very kind. Not one of them judge you no matter what it makes me feel really happy and lucky i was able to attend their school.

I started going to AIS in March of 09. When I walked in the building to enroll I was already feeling defeated like I would never graduate because I am supposed to graduate in 2010 and only had 5.5 credits. I was suprised when I talked to the counselor, The counselor gave me hope and made me see a light at the end of the tunnel. She was really nice and did not in any way judge me for my past. I really am thankful I went to AIS because I now have a plan and thanks to them, I am now studying hard to graduate. Thanks AIS! If you want a school that is nonjudgmental and cares about your future go to AIS. The work is sometimes easy then hard but its so worth it! I love AIS!

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.
