This school use to be good and teachers cared about their students. Now the staff seems like your bothering. Teachers don't care you can tell by how they dress. Most of the teachers are overweight and smell. Don't bother with this school. Your child will not be challenged just another low/mid class statistic.

This school used to be great. Now, not so much. If Lori Andrews in the principal, please choose another school. She is miserable. She's uninviting, has not gained the respect of students OR her staff, and has forced out VETERAN (15+ years) teachers with her poor management skills.

The staff and administration at this school is very lacking in what it takes to run an efficient educational program. They don't listen to the parents, communication is a foreign concept to them and there's no sense of welcoming or community to be found anywhere on campus. And the quality of most of the teachers leaves one wondering how they even got their teaching degrees at all. Try to avoid this school at all costs!

E.W. Griffith is a fabulous elementary school. The teachers are good, the resource teacher, Ms. Snow, is FANTABULOUS, and the principal is what a real principal should be - she is out for the kids interests ONLY.

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.
