My child loved this school, he transferred from another nearby "not so great school." At this school he felt very welcomed, he thought his teacher was awesome. They are always doing fun activities. The staff here is very friendly and informative, the principle genuinely cares about the school and students. The students receive certificates, awards and recognition for their achievements. Very positive environment, there's a perfect amount of parental involvement. My only regret is not sending him here sooner.

I have a 5 year old son going there & he just loves going to school there. He comes home & tells me the things they do in class & the lessons that he's learning. I noticed that the teachers really care about my son's education as well as safety & well-being.

This school has gone thru many changes. During the past year, the principal, vice principal and office personnel have retired or resigned. There are now new personnel and new ideas, which are great...but gives us a little time to adjust to the changes, please. This was a great school and is now becoming a better school. The only thing that really bothers me...whenever I ask a question to any staff, whether office or teaching, they are rude and act as if you are bothering them. I wonder if they treat the kids this way as well? Good Luck Tigers!

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.
