Posted February 23, 2004

My child has attended this school for five years. If it was not for four wonderful teachers I would have pulled him out. The staff in general has been rude and seem almost lacking the basic skills to do thier jobs. My hat is off to all the teachers who have been so good during his time as a student. I feel sorry for them having to deal with such a poor administrative staff. There is much change needed here.

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.
