Sheila Tarr is a great school that continues to get better. The staff takes pride in their school and are very professional and cooperative. My children--now in 3rd and 2nd grades--have thrived. Their teachers have across the board been talented, up to date, and loving. In particular, the PE teacher is charismatic and organizes a number of popular extracurricular sports and dance activities. There is lots of parental support. All around, it is a wonderful community to be a part of, and a wonderful place for our children to grow socially and academically.
Great!! School, my son will be in fourth grade this year and I have another going into 1st. Grade. Only wish I had lived on this side of town when my daughter was in elementary . The teachers are so dedicated to their students and are there for the parents if you ask for for their help. Love the dedication from the staff.
My grandson has been at Sheila Tarr since K, now in 2nd grade. He is doing marvelously well. The teachers are among the best in Las Vegas and the staff across the board is great. Thank you all for helping one little boy be the best and brightest he can be!
Mr. Bishop and Mr. H. The best leaders that I've seen in a long time. They both truely care, their is no drama it's a very family friendly school. Coming from Conners it's a breathe of fresh air. I just wish we would of never had to go to Conners . Our children are so happy at Tarr. Thank you Shiela Tarr
Best school in Las vegas !!! I have two children that go to Tarr. My son has autism and is in Ms. Kellies class she is a outstanding autism teacher . I feel my chidren are very safe and loved at this school. The staff are very kind and understanding . It is the best feeling when you know that your children are getting the best education and that the teachers really do care about the kids. Thank you , All Tarr ES Teachers !!!
Very good school!! Very good school for Kindergarten. They work very well with them to have fun and learn at the same time. My daughter had Mrs. Borgos but the other teacher is just as good. They are both very much involved with the children and the school also has many outing for the kids and parents to connect. This school is unlike any other elementary I have seen especially with Vegas having really bad schools. Im glad I was able to put my child in this school because someone I knew lived in the area. I have since moved so that she can continue to go there.
Sheila Tarr ES has been a great school for my daughter. When she entered second grade she was testing as a first grade beginner reading level. Thanks to their Lexia Lab reading program and she is exactly where she is supposed to be. They worked very closely with her as well as very close with my husband and I to help her in the most effective way. The school keeps parents highly involved with their children's learning and has an amazing friendly staff of teachers and personnel.
I have two children who attend this school. They attended a different school prior to this one and I have to say that the other school was better in several ways. I think that the teachers are nice, but the school does not have a lot going on in the way of extracurricular opportunities or clubs. The other school was also more challenging academically. I have only had one brush with the principal and I found him to be unrealistic in his expectations of behavior. I get the feeling that the school is a bit too rigid.
