My daughters have attended this school since Kindergarden and they haven't had major issues. The school offers GATE and many activities, however I was very disappointed that it didn't pass the no child left behind category for two years in a row. I am planning to change schools. The teachers are not up to standards, some of the teachers have visible tatoos all over their bodies and don't dress appropriately. We would like to thank Ms. Montisano, Ms. Streck, Ms. Dreyfus, Ms. Copper, Ms Foster and Ms. C.

My son goes to this school and when he first started there it was a good school. In the last year the class size has doubled and most of the teachers are new. The kids at the school have alot of behavior problems. The teachers don't have enough experience, to be able to deal with the children.

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.
