My child entered the school when it opened in our neighborhood. He enjoyed all aspects of the school experience and participated in a wide-range of activites chorus and the GATE program. The educational program he received was tailored to meet his individualized needs. Before and afterschool programs were offered that he participated in. The school has a high level of parental involvement and from the moment you enter the school your are welcomed and treated in a courteous manner. The school sponsors a variety of events and activities and has a very active PTA. I would highly recommend this school to other parents.

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.
