I can't say enough great things about Odyssey Charter Schools. We tried the schools we were zoned for, but our children just were not doing well. We decided to give Odyssey a shot after hearing some wonderful things about them from a friend. We are amazed at the one-on-one attention my kids have received from their teachers at Odyssey. We get regular calls home from teachers when our students are not doing well and we are able to log in daily to track how they are doing. Our kids actually enjoy school now and are eager to learn. The administrators and staff are top notch. We get quick responses whenever we call. The technology department at Odyssey is amazing! They helped us fix both of our computers for free when the Geek Squad at Best Buy was trying to charge us hundreds. They have also helped us for hours on the phone with any questions we have had with Moodle or any of the other course material. Great school, great staff, great teachers! Changing to Odyssey was the best decision we made for our kids.

This is place is just amazing. all the others schools are horrible no matter what ever they say. the teachers are very kind and respectful. if your having hard times with any of your courses they always help you in the nicest and simplest ways. and unlike other schools where teachers would yell at you for not doing work, they would ask why haven't you been doing your work and that they're here to helpful. other peers are very kind and respectful and its pretty calm in the school

This school has been great for my daughter. She went from a D/F student with very low self confidence, to an A/B student who loves to learn. It is a great school for students who work better at their own pace and own schedule. It is also a great school for students (like my daughter) who simply struggle in a traditional environment.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the High School Proficiency Examination (HSPE) to assess high school students in reading, writing, math and science. The HSPE is a high school graduation requirement. The HSPE 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.
