This school has taught me to be kind and respectful to people around me that I don't even know. In the beginning of fourth grade I have learned in 3 months a bunch of wonderful things. This school is amazing and spectacular to be taught at this school.

Hayes is an example of how public education should function. The teachers encourage the students, (most) parents are supportive, and the students enjoy going there. Mr. Ligon, the Principal, cares about the students and is directly involved with them.

I was a student there a couple of years ago I loved. All the teachers are nice and care if you're learning or not. The office staff is nice and do a lot of things for the school they really care. Unlike the other school I used to go to.

My son is being going to this school since kindergarten. He just completed 4th grade. I love this school, the teachers, the office staff...it's a GREAT school!

We just started attending this school after moving here from another state. The front office staff is dismissive and rude, and the principal is never around. The teachers seem to care but are hampered by overcrowded classrooms and curriculims that are focused too much on passing state test and not teaching the kids. It's a common theme here in Las Vegas schools and is very dissappointing.

I've had a child in Hayes since the year it opened. My 2nd child is in 2nd grade now. I love the school. A lot of the teachers have been there awhile, so you know them and they acknowledge you in the hallway. All of the doors past the office are locked, so nobody could get in without signing in at the office. In the last 8 years that my children have been at Hayes, I've had no issues. My 2nd grader now is behind in reading,and they quickly enrolled him in a special reading program to help him out. My only wish is that it will convert to a 9 month school. I'll have to keep my fingers crossed on that one. Gina

all three of our kids have gone to Hayes and we have been very pleased with the care and education they have obtained over the past 7 years. the GATE program has been wonderful as well.

Great School, great staff and positive environment for students! The only concern I have would be the inappropriate attire of some of the female teachers. They need to remember that they are helping to sculpt young minds and I ask the administration to hold the staff to a more professional standard of dress. No more tight / short clothes or bellys showing. It's time to act your age! Thanks!

My daughter started here in 2004 in 1st grade and I always see both the principal and asst principal in the hallways. Her teacher is fabulous and goes above and beyond. They have PE, music, art and library. I had a concern and the principal returned my call that day. Good School.

Our child has attended Hayes since Kindergarten, and is now in the fourth grade. We have had no problems with the school or the teachers there, and think that they do a wonderful job in helping to educate our child.

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.
