ECTA is a great school if you are interested about technology, but they also have Culinary for you to choose. My brother is currently a 10th grader attending, and he loves it! I'm thinking about going there myself (since it's my senior year of middle school), but I also have my eyes set on other magnet schools too. So, if you're interested in IT, cooking, and other technical stuff, go here!

I'm a ninth grader at ECTA and I absolutely love it! I couldn't think of anything better about it! The programs are great and the school is so innovative and new! The project based learning is definitely a new concept, and I'm all open for it. Text books can only say so much, but when you learn hands on, you're actually learning rather than just seeing what the book wants you to see. I would recommend this school for anyone going into high school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the High School Proficiency Examination (HSPE) to assess high school students in reading, writing, math and science. The HSPE is a high school graduation requirement. The HSPE 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.
