Posted September 1, 2003

My over all dealings with the administrative staff have been less than cordial. It was more like dealing with the staff of a detention facility. Garside considers a 'D average' as passing, it would appear. Then, when your child gets out of school, they are at the immediate mercy of the school bullies, which the staff seems blissfully unaware of. On a positive note, there ARE some good teachers here, if few and far between.

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.
