Great! Don't listen to the bad reviews. "Overall, students...are mislead to believe that the electives are available to all students. Very disappointing." Someone had said. Actually, all electives ARE available, but at the end of the year, the teacher chooses who will be in that certain elective for the next year. for instance, I am in Intermediate Art, but you don't have to have skill to be in any of the art levels. It goes by responsibility and behavior. If your child is messing aground all the time, don't complain if he or she, don't receive that elective the following year. However, I only have one issue with my school. All the music related electives. They seem to be the main focus of the school! So if you are planning on being an art student, don't expect the spotlight. The art teacher is wonderful though, he even won "The Best Teacher Award" once! (I am a student.)

I go to this school... and it is okay but it really needs improvements. School lunch, especially. The aides that work behind the counter are terrible (some of them). For example, I saw one of them put more food on one plate for another person just because the knew them. The kids at this school use foul language everywhere I go. The older ones, especially. I thought the older ones were supposed to be role models for the younger kids.... but I guess I thought wrong? But... I do like how Schofield has the electives and how eh teachers try to help the students with work as much as they could.

I have personally witnessed the Dean's aides and other assistants having meltdowns when students misbehave or make a mistake. They scream, yell and even use foul language. Great role models. Some of the teachers are just as bad. No wonder so many kids hate going to school.

i go to this school now and i guess its okay but the deans and stuff are really strict on the rules that they dont follow themselves. there always chewing gum or eating. and the principle acts like he doesnt even care. honestly the only reason i go is to be with the other students.

i went to this school and i loved the teachers. but thats just about the only thing. everything else was terrible. the administration was completly undermining of everystudent that needed special help with any sort of disabillaties. so if you have a child with any problems wat-so-ever, dont take them here. the principal is......sub-par to say the least.


Posted April 18, 2008

Schofield is an excellent school with a xero tollerance policy to violence and verbal abuse. I have two sons who go there and they like it (as much as a kid can like a school). The staff and teachers work very hard and keep us informed of the students' progress.

Well I am a 8th grader at this school, I think it is a ok school. They are very strict on dress code which makes it horrible in the beginning of summer. But other wise it is a ok school.

I am an 8th grader at this school. I have been here since 6th grade, and it is a great school. There is not a lot of violence or anything like that. The teachers are really good, especially the choir teacher, and the principal is wonderful!

I am a parent of 2 children that have gone to or are currently attending Schofield. They have a great teaching staff, and the administration is fantastic. Schofield is a wonderful middle school.

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.
