I love this school. This is the best school I have ever been to and the teachers and students are well respected from what I see.

I think the school is over crowded but that's not Canarellis fault. Other than the lack of teachers (some, not all) not caring about all the students it's a good 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.
