Las Vegas High School is wonderful! The principal, Debbie Brockett supports all programs. You will often see her sitting on the bleachers with parents cheering the football team on...she also attends fine art functions like the choir concerts. Janet Tyler is the best choir teacher in Vegas as far as we are concerned. She taught three of our children and was their favorite teacher! She has a great impact on her students!

I am a student here and the academic quality of this school sucks. I do like some of the teachers who teach well but the majority of the teachers don't care about the students. The teachers here are like "Oh that kid is sleeping? It's their problem now. or That kid just insulted me...better let him stay here and continue disrupting the class. I am a freshman, but now going to be a sophmore and I can't stress out enough about how your grade will get you bullied. Most of the seniors look down on the lower classman, but I have friends at ECTA who say everyone is treated as if they were the same age. This a sports-oriented school, they use more money for equipment rather than hiring better teachers. The student council is also rigged, since the principal's daughter always gets the title of President, no matter how many people vote for someone different. Like in one of the reviews here, they are biased to the whites. I am probably the only one who cares about my education in most of my classes. I have straight A's all throughout freshman year. The classes are easy, and we don't have to take semester exams if we have good grades. I wish we did because I need to study for something!

As an alumni from Las Vegas High School, I can merit the tremendous amount of effort, energy and intellect that the school is a part of. There is no dout that the 'Great Schools Rating' is based off of test results. However, we do need to take into account the enrollment of students. There are many latins, non-english speakers, who unfortunately, despite their admiring efforts, will have low test scores. This is not taken into account in the 'Great Schools' rating. Nonetheless, the actual fact is that Las Vegas High School has been, and is still considered by the community, and the District, a superior secondary education option. My suggestion that anyone concerned or interested in the actual status of this school, get aquainted with the faculty and staff. Its beyond a doubt that there you will find what Las Vegas High School is truly about. Spirit, Effort, and Excellence

Las Vegas High School is a pretty good school. There's a large amount of school spirit, and for the most part students there tend to be friendly (albeit there are cliques like in most other schools). Teachers are usually helpful and do the best to assist kids. The counselors are especially good at making sure each student gets the attention they need. The sports and extracurricular programs are pretty wonderful as well. As a senior this year, I've really enjoyed my time at LVHS.

I am a student and I know first hand of what goes down there. The staff do not care about the black students. They attend to the white students but when a black student needs desperate help in a situation they say they are quote 'busy!'. Las Vegas High is the worst school. 4 years I have been bullied and justice was never served.

Las Vegas High School is one of the best in the district. They have an administration that displays incredible leadership, teachers that are knowledgeable and caring, and a staff that is friendly and helpful. The wildcat school spirit is infectious and celebrated by the whole community as they support the many award-winning extra-curricular activities. I would highly recommend Las Vegas High School.

Las Vegas High School provided my four children with a well-rounded education. The teachers, counselors, and administrators really care about the students. Their Advanced Placement teachers are top notch. LVHS has outstanding sports teams often taking State titles in Football, Boys and Girls Volleyball, and Wrestling. Their music and theater programs are some of the best in the city. Their Jazz band has taken top honors in several regional competitions over the past two or three years. It isn't a perfect school, but the opportunities for students to be successful are readily available.

Las Vegas High School is not Las Vegas Academy which is a grammy award winning and Blue Ribbon magnet high school located in Las Vegas. Yes, the address is 315 So. 3rd, LV for the LVA, but Las Vegas High School is a different high school and is not the Academy. LVA is tops in the nation. Las Vegas High School, located at a different address now, is not the high caliber that LVA is. The historic building LVA occupies was once Las Vegas High School, prior to 1992, when the Academy opened with fewer than 1500 students. LVA is the top of the top schools in the nation, offering the best education anywhere that prepares our future leaders of the world with the tools necessary to exceed all expectations. (From a parent of a former LVA grad)

The teachers act as if they really care about the students. The school is new and the classrooms are very nice. Overall we are very happy with this school. The only problem we have is the bussing into our area from other areas.
