School Official Point of View

Candil Hall Academy has recently reprimanded and, subsequently, terminated an employee (who was also “a parent”) for cause. Since the employee termination, Candil Hall has been hit with a social media vendetta that in today’s world seems hopeless to contest. However, Candil Hall does not intend to silently accept questionable reviews or comments from anonymous or fake users. Candil Hall Academy is a small family-owned private pre-school and elementary school. It has been open since 2001 and, since Candil Hall does not advertise, all of its clients come from social media, but mostly through word of mouth. Candil Hall has always been open to criticism and strives to make thoughtful and smart improvements when needed. Candil Hall stresses that parents thoroughly research their choice of a private school. There is an open-door policy for tours of Candil Hall. Please call (702 656 3370) for a tour. Candil Hall will gladly address any concerns or questions parents might have. Who knows? You may decide to come learn, grow, and play with the Gazelles!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

The low teacher to student ratio and the actual experience of the teachers is great to ensure the teachers can focus on what your individual son or daughter may need.


Amount of homework: Agree

For my kindergartener, it was good. My third grader, was a bit high for the first few months. After having her new, as well as experienced, teacher join Candil Hall, the homework was dialed in to the perfect amount.

Develops character: Strongly agree

With small class size, you don't have to worry about a teacher being too busy to properly engage students or allow inappropriate behaviors to fester. This also means you have regular face time with the teachers so you know what is happening at school and in the classroom.

I have never been to a school that has such a strong sense of family. Parents are welcomed in as friends and invited to participate as much as they can. I have experienced other private schools, but not one this warm. Small class sizes really allowed my children to not get lost in to the background and have a connection to their teachers.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Not really homework to reinforce concepts. Busy work. Like having adept readers "code" words. Juvenile!

Develops character: Strongly agree

All of the staff are very freindly and know every students name. They are fantastic.

Candil Hall is a greeat school. My daughter has come along so much in her first year. She could not read when she left puplic school. Now she is reading really well. Her teacher Ms. Dillar is a wonderful teacher who cares for every student. My daughter loves her. Principle Dillar welcomed my family with open arms. I cannot say enough about the staff and family atmosphere at Candil Hall. My daughter loves going to school now thanks to this wonderful school.

Candil Hall is a phenomenal school. My son attends preschool there, and I am thrilled with the atmosphere, the learning and the kindness of all the teachers and the staff. The curriculum they teach ensures readiness for Kindergarten. The teachers are kind, information and very professional. All of the people that work at Candil Hall treat the students and parents with respect - it's like a big family. My son loves going to preschool every day because he has built relationships with the teachers and the other students. He is an active little boy, and his classroom offers a variety of centers and engaging activities. At four years old, he knows all of his letter, letter sounds, and is learning to blend sounds and read. I just can't say enough great things about our experiences with Candil Hall - it's a fabulous school!

We have had a wonderful experience at Candil Hall. My son started there in the preschool program and is now in first grade. He is reading far above his grade level and his math skills are amazing for first grade!! The teachers and staff really do make you feel like family. Class sizes are smaller so the teachers are able to give individualized attention to each student. I have absolutely loved my experience with Candil Hall! My son is comfortable there and thriving. I was very nervous with the stigma that has attached itself to Las Vegas and education, but Candil Hall has taken all of that away for me.
