We moved to Las Vegas last year and learned that they had changed to a 12-month school. I told them I had another child in middle school, so I needed to be on Track 5 so they could be somewhat on the same schedule. They told me it would be hard, so I asked what my other options were. The front office lady snickered and told me "you don't have any!". Real nice first impression... I wish it had gotten better since then, but there's no communication from the school, no involvement from anyone, and it does seem that nobody on the admin side cares at all. My child's teacher is very nice and tries to help everyone, but it's not enough to overcome the lack of everything else. By the way, all 5th graders should be on Track 5... because next year in 6th grade they'll have to go to school from July to December with 2 weeks vacation in August. This reflects the forward thinking of the administrators at that school.

I do not feel that the principal is involved enough. It's not a bad school at all but I think the little things need taken care of better. I would rate this school a 6. My daughter never can finish her lunch because she says she has to listen to the lunch people and nerve has time to eat. Very weird?? Not happy at all on how they deal with lunch time she is so hungry after school!!!

This is not my favorite school. The principal seems nice, some of the teachers seem nice, the front office staff isn't that friendly. They are very strict at lunch, understandable when there are so many kids to get through lunch, however it feels like I drop my kid off at prison every morning. Thank goodness he's made friends to make it a little easier.

Principal Kalandra Sheppard is running this school into the ground. I think it is time open a federal case to expose the mismanagement of this school. Her tenure at this site is ruining our great Mountain s Edge Community. She does what is best for herself and not the students. Kalandra is rude to students, rude to parents, and rude to teachers.

I am laughing at the last post. Maybe a parent should spell principal correctly before slamming the school. No school is perfect, but my children have attended Reedom for four years and have been successful. I have volunteered in their classrooms on numerous occasions, have brought my children lunch and have had many positive interactions with the school nurse. I tend to see the parents with the most issues are the ones that want to constantly complain and who are too busy to be involved. Guarantee you will have the same problems at the next school!

I wish I could say this school is great but It's not. You must schedule a time to speak with the principle and even then it's a argumentative conversation with her getting defensive. I had to have my child removed from her class half way through the year as her teacher was completely incompetent to teach with a horrible attitude toward the kids. My child has a learning disability and wasn't given the 504 accommodations.The lunch ladies Yell at the kids and if they talk they remove them from their lunch and make them sit up onstage in front of everyone so they can get their names. They treat parents like terrorists. NOBODY is allowed in their child's class ever. You can't even eat lunch with your kids. They remove your child and make you sit at a table in the front lobby. The school nurse talks to you as if it's a imposition to help your sick child and heaven help you if you can't get there right away to pick them up. The principle has a poor attitude and so it trickles to the staff. Glad to be In The new school next year!!

Most not all....of the teachers are horrible. My son's teacher was rarely there and my daughters kindergarten teacher was very mean...too strict for kinder. Never saw the principal once and we were at the school for 4 months! I have heard the principal is bad still. Not overly impressed with thus school. I put my kids in a charter school.

The school has implemented a zero talk policy during lunch. The children are not allowed to talk during lunch until they reach level 2. At that time, they are allowed to talk. If they are caught talking during lunch, even whispering, they are given detention. Children need to interact with each other. When I phoned the school to question this new policy, they claimed the children could talk once they got their lunches and were sat down at the table. That is a lie. I have spoken to several teachers and students and they said that the new assistant principal walks around the lunch room and yells "zero talk policy!!" If the administration don't want to listen to children talk to each other, then they are in the wrong business. This is not a prison. The school used to be so good. We miss you Mr. Wilson.

My children have been attending Reedom for the past 4 years. At first the school was great... My son had an amazing Kindergarten teacher and my daughter loved her Kindergarten and first grade teachers. But for the past 2 years their teachers are just not as good. One teacher actually used to pick on one of my children continuously questioning her for being late... even saying "______ makes it to school on time, why can't you?" If the school has a question about a child being late; I feel they should speak with the parent. One of my children has also had issues with bullying/name calling... I must say I don't agree with their procedures regarding bullying. I wish there was more communication. There are many events they offer, which my children love. As for the office staff, I have never had an issue. Julie in the front office is the best... always very helpful!

School was putting wrong attendance at my child. On January 2013 they send me a letter that my child has already 6 absences, ok yes because she was sick for 4 days last year understandable. They send me a 2nd letter notice on February saying my child has 10 absences WOW !!! My child was never absent from January 2013 to February 2013 . And lastly March 25 I received the third notice saying my child has 16 absences REALLY??

I could not be happier! I have three children attending Reedom and the programs and education that they receive is excellent! My children all three love their teachers and come home from school happy and talk about their day at school and what they have learned. The music program is so great! The art and the myscilearn and so many others. The pta leader is great. The office staff is always willing to help me. My kids love the Daddy/Daughter and Mother/Son dance. Field day is great too! I am so proud that my kids go to Reedom and am so thankful everyday that my children are getting such a great education, thank you!

2nd year at Reedom and very disappointed. My son attended Kindergarten last year and the school was amazing - great communication, good teacher, etc. Now with the new principal it's gone completely downhill! My kids are in First and Kinder, the notes coming home from the teachers are unbelieveable. First it started with the teacher sending me a page and a half email that she didn't approve of my daughter's lunch (sandwich, apples & mini cupcake) and I should make better food choices for my child. Now I get a note saying that they are monitoring the kid's bathroom breaks and will *reward* children who don't use the bathroom with gifts from the Treasure Box. Are you kidding me?

The principal is horrible and lacks the skills to work with children and parents. My son is going into the 3rd grade and has been attending Reedom since Kindergarten. The 3 teachers he's had so far have been nothing short of amazing.

My son has attended this school for 2 years. He's in 5th grade. The teachers seem to yell a lot at the kids and are very strict as far as 10 year old children should be concerned. If I had a choice I would move somewhere else in Vegas to get better instruction. Math teacher is also not very structured and seems very lazy

My son is in all day kindergarten and I am amazed at the superior level of education that is given. He's challenged and encouraged and this is all a parent can ask for. Excellent teachers and support staff. Very active with the community and parents. I highly recommend this school.

My daughter has been a student at Reedom not quite one year. I would say that the front office staff can be a bit unprofessional at times, even argumentative when concerns are brought forth. First impressions are important, and theirs has more than once, left a bitter taste in my mouth. The teacher that my daughter has is awesome. I wasn't too happy to hear about my daughters interaction with substitute teachers. It truly made me wonder how much is put into the school truly hiring quality subs for these intermittent positions. On a positive note, I do absolutely love the challenging and well structured academic program offered here.

Just moved from NJ and thought it would be very difficult for my children to adjust. My daughter joined the full day kinder and my son is in 4th grade. They both love the school and their teachers. They have a structured homework program which my husband and I really like and the parent-teacher communication is done very well. I hope that this continues for more years.. Strive to be a Blue Ribbon School!

I believe that this public school offers everything if not more than any private school can. My children are getting a better education this year than all the previous years after paying thousands of dollars in tuition money. The teachers go above and beyond. I can not express my gratitude towards the teachers and the effort they put into their daily job!
