I've witnessed Booker change from one of the worse in the district to one of the best schools. Dr. Mathis has not only improved the quality of education that is given, but she has provided a safe and secure place as well. I don' worry when my kids steps into Booker. PLUS- the new school is beautiful!

Booker is a great school. My children began attending back in 2001. One of my boys were behind because he didn't receive a proper education from the pre-school he attended. I enrolled him in Booker and now he's excelling. He's tops in his class. Thanks Dr. Mathis!

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.
