I used to be another teen mom that everyone wrote off as a no one. I went to this school for six months and met the best teacher in my life. He challenged us to be more than who we are, not just in science but in life. I acted in a play for the school and I never did anything like that in my life! Now I am in my last year of college and I still have to say without schools like this, I would not had the opportunity to excel in a conventional high school.

um!! theses post are very interesting and are probably true.While I nor my daughter are African american she often tell me stories when we discuss the events of her day and some of what those post below say ring true to what I've heard.Some of the parents should get together and do some sort of investigation and start a letter writing campaign.

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.
