this is a great school.i love this school.i think it is one of the best schools ever.


Posted September 15, 2012

Our home is zoned for this school, but I cannot in good conscience send my child there. We are US citizens, and do not speak Spanish, but for all intents and purposes, this is a Spanish-speaking only school. By the school's own stats, 85.7% of the students have limited English proficiency! This is unacceptable! This school is a shining example of why public education does not work.

One of the most well-run schools in the system. The principal is industrious and creative. The teachers are likewise. The children are well-taught and well-behaved. The office staff are helpful. A beautiful building and an excellent learning environment.

Very poor office communications and not taking responsibilities for their actions blaming some one else for their faults and not themselves to handle the situation, the teachers are excellent but the office staff and Vice principle poor.

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.
