I had two of my kids enrolled in this school. I have to complement both the teachers and the staff for being as wonderful as they are. This is a great school. It has been great for my kids. They are so helpful with any problems. On a scale of 1 to 10 ,I would give this school 10 +.

My sons have been attending J. W. Jeffers since it opened nearly three years ago and I have nothing but positive things to say about this school. My oldest son had some behavioral problems and the previous school just dismissed him as being a 'bad' child. My sons caring third grade teacher decided to have him tested to see if he had any learning disabilities and he did. My son is now thriving thanks to her.

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.
