Profile Completeness

INTERMEDIATE

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Awesome school!! This elementary school has ALOT to offer both during school and after. Teachers are excellent! There is a tremendous feeling of school spirit and pride. Strong principal leadership. My oldest has been here ever since it opened and now my youngest has started, both children love it there!!

Overall this school is AVERAGE at best. Through other parents, I hear, FOR LAS VEGAS, this is supposedly a great school. My kids have been to other schools out of state -- GREAT SCHOOLS with GREAT cirriculums and this isn't a great school. I am very well educated and so is my husband and I want people to know this is not a school that you will be completely happy with. The administration will not listen to parents-- especially about cirriculum, (or the lack there of); nor does the administration (Prin./V.P) know anything about what's going on in ANY of the classes. Yes, there are definitely a few GREAT TEACHERS, actually, FANTASTIC teachers and hopefully, you will get one of them. And YES, almost every teacher at this school has a masters, which doesn't prove to me that they are better TEACHERS, it means they are paid more money, after all, that's why we get our masters. Check out a few other schools before Buying Your House in this zone, you may LOVE that house, but you will NOT love this school!!!

My kids love the school. The teachers are strong and care about the kids. The school offers lots of after-school activities like football, cheerleading, tennis, choir, student council, math olympiad, chess and science. One of the best.

The school is set up for rotating classes like in middle school or high school. Problem is the kids stand in line all DAY eating up valuable learning time. The 5th grade staff are friends & if your child has a personality it is frowned upon. The writing teacher didn't teach writing. There is very little or no contact if there is a problem with grades or any issue really. If you have to put your kid here GOODLUCK...WORST ELEMENTARY EVER!

What a caring and committed staff! My children are motivated and engaged in their learning. This is the way an elementary school should function.

My daughter has excelled at O'Roarke. The parent involvement is high, the teachers are well educated too. I have yet to see my daughter have a teacher without a masters degree.
