I constantly have trouble with most of the teachers, they never listen to parents concerns nor communicate. They set-up parents as well as children. In addition, the teachers have no control over their students. The curriculum is very poorly and do not teach children the difference between bully or abuse. The students are very gossipi and the teachers begin to accuse certain children.

Do whatever you can to stay away from this school. The teachers don't care, the Principal has no idea that her teachers are incompetent. I would have put my child in a different school if it wasn't his last year at Hummel.

The teacher seemed very disorganized and overworked. The office staff is the rudest I have ever encountered. My child still managed to get good grades and do well. Unfortunately, I was not able to move to an area that has better schools, we will tough it out again this year and pray for better.

This is my sons last year of elementary school at John R Hummel I have faith that this is the best choice of school for him because it was the best choice of school for my daughter who is now in middle school excelling academically. SHe is in the Junior Honors Society and doing well in all of her classes so far and that is because she got a really good headstart at John R Hummel. This school has a great curriculum which gives the students the ability to learn well and excel in everything they do in school, at home and in their social surroundings. They incorporate a safe and healthy environment for their students to come to and learn. Their events are so well organized and makes it a memorable for every students that come and go. I highly recommend John R Hummel for every parent to enroll their students to.

My experience with Hummel has been nothing but positive. The principal is friendly, approachable and fair. I like the teachers too. I'm not crazy about the year-round calendar but that's not the school's fault. Overall, I think Hummel is an excellent school.

I am very impressed with Hummel. The prinicpal is very visible, greeting all students every morning when they enter the building and outside every day at dismissal time. The teachers are very professional. Student discipline is fair and equitable. I'm not sure what school those other people are talking about, but it's not the Hummel that I know. Great school!

I have two kids who go to this school. Overall its an ok school. I don't like that they do not give my kids homework, and they call you at work for any little distrurbance. It gets very annoying, and noticed once your kid gets in trouble they are pinpointed from the bunch even when they are on the A/B Honor Roll. I don't like the teaching staff.

I Love this school. I have 2 children attending this year, and they love it. Teachers are great, helpful and available. Administrative staff is also great. Looking forward to next year.

I recently moved my children to this school from another clark county school district. I am very happy with the teachers here. I also like that the 5th graders have 5 different classes to prepare them for middle school. It woild be great if Kindergarden could be all day.

I have 2 children at this school. We have had nothing but trouble from the teachers and the principle! I can't wait to pull my kids out of this terrible school.

Posted November 24, 2006

My child went to this school for one year and by the second month I was trying to get her out. This is the absolute worst school I have ever seen. There is no classroom structure and the teachers and admin have little to no communication skills.

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.
