I disagree with the last review. The lunch now is just as bad as the last.. Anyway that's just a minor issue of this school.. They need more teachers that speak English. Cleaner bathrooms, and stop getting greedy with making money. I don't know how this school stays open. I pulled my kids out. DON'T LET YOUR KIDS GO TO THIS DUMP...

Imagine receiving a private school education... for free. That is what Coral Academy offers. The class sizes are a fraction of what they typically are in public schools. Coral nurtures the children's natural abilities and talent. They also just started a new lunch program. Yes, it's pricier than typical school lunches, but then again, processed food is cheap and that's not what they're offering. Overall, it's a great school and really pushing our son every way and he's enjoying it every step of the way.

My son and daughter have been at the different campus for the last 5 years. And the last 3 they have been buying their lunch everyday. I am so sorry to say never again. They had such a great lunch program and now it's the worst. We are now bringing our lunch and I would suggest you do the same.

To the person commenting on PE requirements: In CCSD, students are only required to take one semester in 6th grade and 8th grade. At Coral Academy, Students take a full year of PE in 6th and 7th grade. Also, it is available as an elective in 8th grade if students want to take it. They may not be required to take it in 8th grade, but middle school students at Coral Academy are still getting double the amount of PE than they normally would in the district, and probably most other middle schools in Vegas for that matter.

Coral is not for everyone, but our family has been extremely pleased with our son's education. He had an inspirational 1st grade teacher who exposed him to history, economics, social studies, & science. Her approach to math helped him learn the "number sense" emphasized by the new common core. His teacher promoted independent reading and encouraged him to ask questions. The parents, students, & teachers who comprise the Coral Family at Tamarus also make the community a special place. It takes a huge commitment to attend a charter school that may not be housed in the fanciest structure, or closest to your neighborhood. I like the diversity and parent involvement with each student's scholastic achievements.

Am I the only parent that is bewildered that they do not REQUIRE Physical Education for 8th grade students? Yes, education is a priority, but it is equal with the overall health of the students, and with all of the news coverage regarding overweight children, to not even require 1 day of PE for 8th graders is unacceptable!

This school is not someplace that I would ever want my child to go to again! The school is not cleaned daily. The restrooms can be smelled down the hall which is disgusting. The classrooms are too small for the amount of children put in them. The kids seem to get sick all the time because the school is so unclean and illness seems to continuously be passed. The administration has no idea what some of the teachers are doing in their classrooms. It seems that there is no accountability for the teachers at all and it is pretty much a free for all. I have not been impressed with the school curriculum or lack there of. Outside where the children play there is no grass for them to play in, it is all dirt. The school is very unorganized which I believe is caused by poor administration. My child in second grade has had four different teachers this year and I don't understand how a child is supposed to learn with this high of a turnover rate of teachers. From what I ve seen year to year many teachers leave within a year or two and they seem to have to hire many new teachers each year. This should be a huge red flag for both parents and the administration.This place is horrible!

This school is fantastic !! the principal and office support staff are friendly and efficient . The campus is clean and well appointed. But its really the teachers here that shine the brightest . The teachers here go above and beyond for their students. They have given my son the extra time , attention ,and tutoring when needed , to help him excel and succeed . They are always communicating with me , so we can work together to make my sons school experience positive and successful . I am so grateful to have the opportunity to send my son to such a fine school. I would like to express my gratitude to two exceptional teachers at this school, math teacher Annette Martin and reading teacher Danielle Swords . If you are fortunate enough to have these teachers for your child , I am sure I will be reading your positive review here soon

To start about this school...1. Education wise is ok but Teachers lack communication with parents. We request over and over to communicate with us about the kid but they don't seems to be doing it. 2. There are many areas that this school lacks behind. For instance, in Sanitation and discipline. After school care is very poor with no maintenance of the playground and leaving the kids outside for hours and hours of play in dirt irrespective of weather conditions. Kids are getting up on Allergies, coughing etc because of this. Poor Kids get a small chips pack snack in the after school care and get an additional one for those who picks up the trash in the playground. This treatment towards the kids is not right... Kids are not Janitors to do this kind of stuff - clean someone else trash etc. we are paying fees to learn stuff. They play a movie every day in the after school care after hours and hours of play. I believe education is very important but at the same time proper health is also important. I feel this part of the treatment towards kids is not right and we are thinking to pull out my kid out of that school.

I really expected this school to be great. They were very disorganized. I had no contact info for the teachers and did not know what my children were supposed to be completing at home. The teachers skill level was average at best and would regularly yell at the children. When meeting with the teachers to discuss the issues we were having one of the teachers could not even pick her head up off of the desk for our meeting. I thought the curriculum it's self was good but the delivery was not.

This school is very disorganize at the beginning of the year. Days and weeks of time are wasted at this time. The Sandy Ridge school principal needs to be more visible and accessible every day. Some teachers need to improve their English skills. I don t have a problem with an accent of any kind but poor basic English grammar and writing skills are unforgivable. They crowd too many kids into one campus. The high school campus is not suitable for high school age students. It was built as a middle school. The PowerSchool is not updated regularly It should be done at least weekly, during each quarter. Not all on the last day of a quarter; the science department is particularly bad at this. Some teachers don t return work and test sheets to kids after they have been graded so they and parents can see strong and week areas. Again the science department is particularly bad at this. They wast time giving endless detentions for ridiculous rule infractions the Dean can never keep up with. Rules are rules but they need a better system. Teachers and staff direct traffic every day? What a wast of their time and it s depressing to see. I have never seen such a thing at any school before.

I have four children attending this school, and couldn't be happier with the quality of the education they are receiving . We enjoy small class sizes and very high academic standards. The teachers are of a superior caliber, and many have their master's degree in in the subject they are teaching. This makes such a difference in their knowledge and enthusiasm in the classroom. As our school has grown are getting better and better with each passing year!

Coral is the best school and it is a fact. Because for 7th grade i went to Sig Rough and it say s it is 10 state school but it is not. Coral is a competitive school Rough is not. If you are a competitive person coral is the place. like i said i went to Rough for 7th grade it was bad the math teachers cant teach but coral have great teachers.

My daughter is a 7th grader and new student at Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas (CASLV). I am very excited that she is here. I had various reasons for applying even though I really liked the middle school we are zoned for in the CCSD school district that she attended for 6th grade. When I got the acceptance notice, I gave her the choice and after thinking it over for a few days she decided to accept. When she completed the 6th grade I was very concerned by what I saw in her Math grade Final Exam and researched further to find out that she was missing several foundational tools to progress, yet her final grade was a "C"... It concerned me that the reports I received all year showed that she was fine... I was excited to learn of CASLV's standards for learning and promotion. My daughter was hesitant over the summer when learning of CASLV's academic expectations and uniform policy, but when I picked her up on the first day, she was very excited and told me how happy she is to be attending Coral Academy and understands the foundation she is receiving to prepare her for High School. I appreciate the administration's focus to prepare the students for success in school and life.

This school is a great school. I do see some of the parents/students bashing the school and I don't understand why. Many of the student that do this come from Public School. Where they are familiar with how Public School is ran, not a Charter School. I've been apart of CASLV for 5 years now. When I first came to the school it wasn't a very pleasant school for me to be attending because I can from a Public School and didn't understand how the school worked. But as time went on the school really started to shine into an academic BOSS that it is today. It's not as bad as some people make it out to be. The Campus is clean, the teachers are getting better and better very year, and the activity's that the school is having, Home-coming and ect, is also improving. This school has classes for everyone. From smart to below average. ( and as for one of the comments talking about how the 10th graders of 2012-2013 school year failed is because of their own attitude towards that test, most of them didn't care or are too lazy to even attempt that test, yet not all of the 10th graders are that lazy )

Well,the new school year has begun in a very smooth way. The schedule was ready, school was very clean, everything/everybody was very organized. Shortly, everything was ready for the students for their education. Hope, it will continue in this way and this 2013-2014 school year will be very productive and successful for CASLV. If you are a parent and looking for a very good school, CORAL Las Vegas is exactly for you.

If you want a great education go to this school. Before I was going to a public school and the teachers treated me like I was stupid. I came to this school in 4th grade and they really advanced me. I'm learning 8th grade science and pre-algebra in 6th grade! This school is knows for their math and science programs but, the do advance you in language art, though not as much. However this school does not have a proper nurse. Most people say that they want to leave this school when the make it to high school because this school doesn't have homecoming or prom. The reason for this is because my school supports diversity. I am bummed out about this however, I care more about my education than school parties. Also, if you graduate from coral, a school that wins math and science competitions all over this United States, it will look really good on your college resume. If you look more forward to the American school dream, go to a public school. If you care about you education, career, and future, this is the school for you.

Yesterday, I was at Coral to see the campus. When I got inside I thought that the floor was wet. But later on, I realized that there was no water on the floor. The cleaning company cleaned the school very well. People who say the school is not clean should go to the campus and see it. It was great. ( Just a suggestion to the people who think about the campus is clean or not. :) )

Hi . Online here I noticed that lots of parents are discussing how much they love coral. But the students don't really talk but when they do they really don't like this school. Ive only found one here that says they liked the school and they attend it . Well anyways i left coral after attending it last year. Within the first few weeks I left . Once I left the school I went to liberty and all the ciriculum is WAY harder. Lucky I managed to get all the help I needed from tutoring and now I have a 4.0 . So yeah . Coral just wasnt challenging . Lucky i left before I got even more dumber . BTW , my friend is a softimore and she said that more than half of the 10th graders FAILED the proficiencies . Sorry coral . But i loved the campus . BEAUTIFUL . And the people were super nice and outgoing. Just wish they had a better education. :(

Coral Academy has a pretty good middle school criteria but the high school is utterly ridiculous. I could go on and on about how unorganized the school is and how the students don't care about the schools environment but I will just tell you about the education. There are two main qualities the teachers have at coral academy, they're too easy for the students OR they don't even know how to teach. My english teacher was my favorite in 9th grade due to his great teaching skills and his willingness to help. My biology teacher didn't ever follow up with her word and caused the majority of my honors biology to fail the final. Don't even get me started with my geometry teacher. The guy didn't care. I went to tutoring almost everyday, I went over every question I got wrong on every test,quiz, or homework and you know what he says to me everytime I fail? YOU DONT TRY HARD IT VERY EASY. Thanks sir thats really helpful. If you miss any quizess in that class he just places it as a zero. So much of a college prep school . WE HAVE RECESS ! Dear coral academy, please hire people that speak english and have the willingness to help students day in and day out. DON'T SEND HIGHSCHOOLERS HERE.

Don't believe the hype. It's a good school and will really look good on your college aps and I really am overall satisfied that I sent my child there. The majority of the teachers do make themselves available but be forewarned that you and your child will have to do the majority of the heavy lifting. If you are not prepared to be a highly involved parent or have a child who is not driven to excel in school then I would recommend you look elsewhere. Overall, Coral is a great small school. It's focus is (surprise) math, science and engineering - so, don't go here if you don't enjoy those topics. Social Studies is pretty good for a science school; the quality of the English courses is good not great. The kids are smart, friendly and nice. Unlike other specialized High Schools, there is not a drug or a cheating culture. It's not very cliquish either. The teachers really know my child and are available for extra help when needed. Even though it is a pretty new school it already has an outstanding reputation and collage acceptance list.There is great communication with the administration if a parent or student have an issue. I highly recommend this school.

Our campus may not be the prettiest (Sandy Ridge). It may be a little rough around the edges. But what the building is lacking is made up 10 fold inside with caring staff and teachers. My daughter is in the advanced Math and Science program in 6th grade and has excelled this year with a 4.0. We tried the private schools of Las Vegas and found them to be overcrowded and behind in Math and Science. I am proud to display the Coral Academy Magnet on my car and I am proud to tell other parents where my daughter goes to school. They are truly a college prep school and care about my child's future!

My son attended the Tamarus campus for Kindergarden. This campus is over crowded, not well maintained, no library, no art room (art is done on the playground), no school nurse, no science lab (as promised at the beginning of the year) and a very high teacher turn over. I see NOTHING to support the "math and science" attached to the schools name. Please do your research before sending your child to this school.

CASLV has many problems: high turn-over of staff, teachers with poor English skills, disorganization within the administration and overcrowding. There was not a lot of willingness by the administration to address concerns of the parents when these concerns were brought to their attention. The attraction of the smaller size was a draw, but failed to live up to its initial draw. Overall, the problems overwhelm the positives.

I started at CASLV in 6th grade and am now in 7th. Its a good school with a great cultural diversity, in a even better area.Note that the school has alot of Turkish staff and students and they speak Turkish to eachother alot which can kind of leave you feeling left out, unless you take turkish class.Last year 11th and 12th grade was added.This year they took away lockersfor a cleaner space and I have to admit its cleaner.They also added new touch computers !!! They have many clubs for middle school but most is only fo 8th grade.For high school they only have a couple.They no longer give student store to 6 and 7th graders but a table with snacks to buy.Somedays we are given Panda express day for $5 or cici's pizza . Because my school osnt funded by the stay we are constantly raising money like every first friday is Cici's night. Overall its a good school although I wouldnt stay for high school due to limited dances and kaki colored pants to worry about of your a girl.

We love Coral Academy. Our first child started at this school in 3rd grade and our youngest entered as a 1st grader. The class sizes are small, the teachers are dedicated, and it is nice to belong to a school community that has families that value education so much. The children are grouped by ability, so the students can be taught at a level appropriate to their abilities and talents. My children are both in the advanced group, and they are challenged far more than they ever were in public school. Because the parents who choose Coral Academy for their children tend to be very educated and concerned about their child's education themselves, the students who attend the school tend to be very bright and motivated. And there is nothing better than the synergy that happens in a classroom where creative and intelligent children work together to learn, guided by a dedicated teacher. I highly recommend this school!

Great school!!! Last year were my kids first year there but it was such a big improvement. My kids are learning a lot of things. Math and Science classes are so far beyond what they are teaching them in the public schools. Class sizes are right around 22 even for middle school and high school. When my oldest son was going to a public school, his 5th grade class were 35 kids. This school may not be tuition free but for $125 per semester and a total of $250 for the whole year, it might as well be free. They actually spend the bulk of their money on the rent on the building. Despite the limited funding they get, Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas actually do far more than the quality of education your kids will receive at any charter schools and public schools in the valley.Teachers are very caring and they really challenge the kids.

I have two children in this school. Both are now in the upper campus. I originally moved my oldest child because he was getting bullied in public school and he is now happy and has a great set of friends from families who value intelligence and education. My younger child moved last year and entered from public reading in the 47% percentile. By the end of the year she was reading in the 80% percentile. I attritube this to the dedication of the staff, the free tutoring she got afterschool, and the dedication of our family to help her catch up. As with everything school related...it takes a team. If you are from a family who is willing to put in the effort, the Coral Academy Team is willing to work with you and help your child reach her fullest potential. Don't get worried about the mild disorganization at the begining of the school year... this is what happens when a school invests money in the students and not in massive overhead and administration like CCSD does. By the end of the second week everything falls into place. Overall, I love this school!

I switched my children to this school because I believed public was failing them. This is the best thing I've ever done for my children. Unlike many parents who switched to this school I switched because my one child was struggling at public. I fought for intervention at everyone kept saying he was fine even though his grades continued to slip. At Coral his grades have improved dramatically and more importantly I feel like he is learning and progressing again. The teachers intervene if they see trouble. The homework load is very challenging. This school is much more work if you have a child who is not an academic achiever. With that, my kids are both happy and thriving. This is the best thing I've ever done for my children.

I was a student here for about two weeks until i transferd to odyssey charter school. Coral was a HORRIBLE school for me. I was in 6th grade and i had a misreable time. The teachers were not nice. They yelled. Alot. If your thinking about going to this school, Dont! It was by far one of the most bad experiences for me ever.

My eldest daughter attended a private kindergarten, and then a magnet school all through elementary and now attends Coral Academy. I was happy with Kindergarten and hugely disappointed in the magnet school, but have been deeply satisfied by the staff at Coral Academy and the commitment they have for the students. I've seen first hand how important each and every child is to the staff. My son has just started as Kindergartener...I see the same care at his campus as well! There are clubs and tutoring available for the kids, and the curriculum is excellent. I have nothing but praise for CASLV!!!

I think Coral Academy is a wonderful school. The classes are smaller and they really care about the kids. The top science winners have come from this school and competed with others across the nation. They test the children and teach according to their abilities. They communicate with the parents so they know what is going on in the school and with their child at all times. Everyone collaborates and works together to benefit the children.

My son in in his first year at Coral Academy of Science. He has been attending Del Webb Middle School but he did not feel that he was being challenged enough. He now feels that he is and he enjoys going to school much more than before. Last year he never had homework but that is not the case now. My wife and I are very pleased with the curriculum he has now and have seen vast improvement in his schoolwork.

I had to remove my son from this school mid-year. He was failing three classes and suffered some very egregious and inappropriate treatment from some of his teachers. A few months later, at his new school, he has just joined the National Honor Society and is on the honor roll. Same boy, same parents - different teachers. We tried and tried to work with them - the Principal and Vice were more committed to their own philosophy rather than the child's best interest. Their loss- he's better off now.

This my son's first year at Coral. We were lucky enough to start with Kindergarten. I cannot say enough good things! The teacher's and the staff are so caring. It's all about the KIDS and it shows. My son is working above grade level, is challenged and loves school! Each child is treated as an individual, not a number! The parent involvement is great! Teacher's and Parents have worked very hard to make the school a success! I recommend this school to anyone that wants a challenging but warm environment for their child.

My son loves school now and looks forward to going everyday! This is our first year with CASLV. He is challenged based on his abilities not his grade level and is truly challenged for the first time. I love the fact that when I conference all the fourth grade teachers come together to meet with me at the same time so I do not have to have individual conferences. The teachers are also always will to take time to discuss my child and help him be successful. In addition to this I have noticed that the whole staff works together and there is not conflict between teachers or grade levels as there was in the district school. This school is truly the best and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants their child to have a solid college prep education

Staff challenge students to be and do their best at school and at home.The staff is respectable and helpful when it comes to parents with concerns.

Coral Academy has the best curriculum out of all the schools my kids have attended (two prior private schools) and this is a public school. The teachers care, they are interactive, professional, and the kids love the curriculum, the teachers, the school, everything. They teach in a very interactive way and really get the kids involved every step of the way. For the first time, my kids are excited every morning about going to school. My little one couldn't even sleep the first week of school because she was so excited and this was a new school for her. I tell everyone about how great the school is and several kids have moved to this school and their parents have come up to me and said thank you for letting them know about it. Highly recommend this school.

Coral academy has come along way since 2008. It has expanded and has minimal issues at this point other than its parking lot. Academically, it has been an excellent challenging year with small class sizes and caring teachers who tutor for free after school. It offers cultural clubs and languages, sports, arts, science, math and so much more. Parent participation is encouraged, as is student participation in every aspect. Coral is a structured, disciplined facility with encouraging student to perform at their highest levels. Minimal fees and uniforms are required, but for anyone who cannot afford a private school, this is the place for your child to get a great education and cultural experience.

Although I remained after the first year of operation, I withdrew my child shortly after the second year began. Disorganization is a recurring theme and the phone system has trouble linking parents with a live person at the school. There is no intercom system that links the entire school and no play equipment for students other than a sport court. The teachers care deeply but are stretched thin and asked to head up clubs in the afternoon. Hopefully, the administration will communicate more effectively with families to help alleviate some of the anxiety that comes with a campus split. The school has potential but because it has been adding additional grade levels each year, things never seem to really resolve. With the school beginning it's third year there is little hope that things will calm down this year with the addition of K-2 and 11th to an existing 3-10th grades.

My daughter is currently in 5th at Coral Academy,and I think it's a great school! The actually size of the classroom is a little small for the number of students, but that is easily overlooked. The teachers are awesome, the only reason I have not enrolled my son is because I do find them somewhat lacking in special education. I think it would be great if they offered more in regards to special ed. As for disorganization, it's the first year for the k-5 in the new building. They are just settling in and I think they are getting it under control. I haven't experienced the 6-12 building yet, but I am kind of weary with county building down the street and the West Hills next door, it just doesn't seem to be an appropriate place for a school. Overall this is a great school.

The school does have some disorganization due to the rapid growth it is experiencing. However; that growth is due to the fact that it offers an excellent alternative to the parents who want to get out of the CCSD budget deprived schools, but cannot afford the tuition at a private school. Coral offers excellent academics, class size, and student teacher interaction. I am happy to have my two children enrolled.

this school has far to go. Disorganization abounds and there are no firm answers from the administration regarding a split of campuses which seems inevitable if they are adding grades K,1,2, and 11 to their existing 3-10 grades. They need some time to get their act together before they will be a school of excellence.

Coral Academy of Science has gone through a huge interest surge and is doubled in school size for yr 2008-09. I transferred my 4th grader in this year and like the curriculum and staff. Uniforms are a plus. The school uses Saxon Math, which is not the best for experiential learning, but the educators are listening to parents. The facility (which housed a daycare/preschool) will need to be upgraded over time, and other capital improvements will enhance the learning experience. Overall a good choice for those parents looking to enroll their child in a private-school environment focused on math, science and growing the well-rounded student. Non-tuition based, but annual fee of $400 and uniform costs.
