Posted October 8, 2013

I was a previous student of Von Tobel Middle School (05-08). Parents, if you have the opportunity to have your child attend at different middle school by all means take advantage. School fights are not uncommon, the teachers struggle more to control students than actually teaching. However I liked the school programs. Band, Orchestra, Mariachi, Cheer, and even Art were excellent. According to recent accounts about this school it seems to have remained the same. Overall this school definitely has room for improvement.

My son has been in the band since he started in 6th grade. He is now going into 8th and I'm hoping they still have band after the school budget problem. My son loves Band. Most teachers are good, and work with parents and the students.

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.
