As a parent I rate Ober Elementary School as Excellent. I have my daughter in 1st grade and my son in Kindergarten. They both love their classes and friends, especially the teachers and staff. Wonderful school..!!

Both my boys adore their teachers. :) The office staff is so sweet and cheery! They offer great programs for parents and students. So many parent volunteers. Would highly recommend this school!

Teachers are actively involved in the development of the students. It is evident that the principal's priority is the students. I feel blessed to entrust my child to such a group of professionals.

Ober Elementary school has been such a pleasure to be at this past year. We have 2 sons here and one in 4th grade with special needs and IEP. They have been very helpful for him, especially seeing we came from out of town, and really helped him fit into his class without too many distractions like pulling him out of class too much. We've used this website before and it has been very helpful, and I hope this is helpful for others. Bottom line, if you're looking for a great school, you found it.

Awesome school especialy for children for learning disabilities. They strongly believe in and encourage the inclusion model and have been very successful. We rave about this school to everyone. Our children have gone there since Day 1. Not only is the principal, Mr Ober, wonderful but the teachers, office staff, lunchroom staff, etc - haven't met anyone there that didn't care for each and every child.

My daughters went there for a couple years before we moved out of state, and is the best school they've been ever, it's clean, secure and caring. Specially Mr. Fleming, he is God sent, best teacher ever. Office staff are so helpful and kind, and Mr. Ober is very involved with everything going on.

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.
