After removing my child from what we thought was an accelerated learning program at Somerset Academy, it was hard to learn that my "above average" performer was pretty far behind the public school system. And that with a dual language immersion program??? Wish we would have moved him sooner. Everyone has been very friendly so far and my kid is back to being a normal happy child.

The 5th grade teachers here are very rude, and have no idea how to motivate children. My son has been insulted many times by his reading teacher and has been called slow, a bump on a log, lazy and not very smart by the man who is supposed to teach, motivate and inspire these children. Very dissapointed in the way my child has been treated by this teacher....!!!

I think that this school has no structure or consequences for bad behavior my son has been hit pushed called names . and the teachers responses to this is" sorry that happened to you" no phone calls home to parents just a kid with a black eye...

This school has amazing staff with a great principal. The dual language is top notch at this school.Great job teachers and staff!


Posted July 29, 2010

This school is not even close to keeping up with the Jones'. It is more of a daycare without ammenities. Lack of structure and a very dissapointing dual language program that takes away from other learning opportunities.

I do not agree with a dual language immersion program in a zoned school where parents have no choice but to get a hard to obtain variance, but my daughter is enjoying it so far. She is only in kindergarden though.

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.
