Excellent School! Excellent Staff! Does anyone know where the new upper campus location will be?

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. This is how schools should work!

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

Coral Academy Of Science, Las Vegas is the best school! My daughter is a first grader and this is our first year attending. my daughter loves school and she struggles to stay challenged. Coral works with her and anticipates her needs, challenging her in the areas she needs to be challenged. The staff and teachers are always willing to stop and speak with me whenever I have a question. My daughter is being prepared for college (even now), so there

Our daughter couldn't wait to get back to school from summer break! She is always so excited to go to school. She loves her teachers and tells us what she learns on a daily basis and we love the curriculum. 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 staff is the friendliest and by far the best we have ever come across!!! It shows by the way they treat our children that they value them for who they are and not just what they can accomplish. We are so blessed to have found you Coral!!!

Coral Academy has teachers that really care about their kids and they love what they do . You can see the difference in the kids that attend this school and our third grader is not only learning but enjoys school. We are so pleased with the curriculum and you know it is the right place when you pick up happy smiling kids at the end of school day. Thank you Coral Academy!!!!

Coral Academy of Las Vegas is an excellent school. The staff is wonderful and always there to assist. The teachers are amazing and go above and beyond to educate the students.

What is there not to love about Coral?! The teachers are great about communicating with us (the parents) to let us know what things are going on. They have many programs to keep our children engaged, and really encourage our kids to be their best and work their hardest. My kids are pushed and challenged to do better than I believe even they know they could do.

This is our first year there... and that is enough for me to say this is the best school my daughter has gone to . The teachers are awesome! My daughter was very unhappy at her old school. Everyday my daughter comes home now excited about what she has learned. We are sooooo happy to have made the move to Coral Academy!! Keep up the great work CASLV!!!!

Challenges the students minds and helps them to excell at their level. They go above and beyond the call of duty, very parent involved and very aware of all that needs to be done to have a successful curriculum. We are very pleased and will continue to have our children involved and enrolled at this school. CASLV is great.

Love the higher level of academics the kids get in math and science according to their abilities and not their age or grade.

The student teacher interaction. The staff care about the kids and making sure they recieve the beat possible education.

Coral Academy caters to the needs of every student. They offer accelerated classes to challenge those students who are above the learning curve, while still giving the students who are right on schedule or a little behind there grade level an equal opportunity to excel. The staff cares about each child, and they offer many after school clubs.

This is first year for my 2 kids. They love it !!! Since they started this school, I can see big improvement of time management for homework and reading. Before putting my kids in this school, I heard some negative side like lack of school supplies. small classrooms,disorganization,not proper playground and so on. But right now those thing don't worry me. We as a parent need great teachers, wonderful school staff. Coral has everything we need. Highly recommend this 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.

The different student groups are identified by the Nevada Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
