This school is the heart of the community...yes there are some problems but the staff and administration gives 250% to their children. They GO Over and BEYOND the call of duty to provide these children and families with love, quality education, structure and self esteem. They believe in their children and I belive in them!!!

I give this school a rating of four because even though this school is in a terrible neighborhood it has survised almost 2 decades. The school staff this year is excellent. With this year I have noticed that my son has grown tremendously with academics within special ed SLD classroom. Koodoos to the teacher who is teaching 4th grade SLD

I had the great opportunity to work at Matt Kelly and very much enjoyed it. I give it a rating of a 3 not because staff, students, administration, and parents are a problem. I think the problem with the school is the learning environment. The building is in very tough shape as well as the sometimes outdated materials. I want to commend the person who decided to drop SFA from their curriculum. I am also proud that they are known not as a Pharoah, but a mountain lion. I learned more in my 3 years at Matt Kelly about dealing with the toughest of life problems and would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a Grand challenge. I feel fortunate to have worked there.

I used to work for Matt Kelly Elementary School. I am surprised it has not been shut down yet. The school is poorly run and is in the most dangerous neighborhood in Las Vegas. The classrooms are generally out of control and way below standards.

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.
