If you care about your child's education at all run while you still have the chance. Before moving to Laughlin my daughter had straight A's and loved school. Since moving here she now has C's and one D. The students are bullies and the staff does nothing about it. My daughter constantly comes home crying because the students were throwing things at her, calling her vulgar names, and threatening her. Twice she has sought help from the guidance counselor only to be told "suck it up and go back to class". This school is so horrible that we are breaking our lease 6 months early to move to Bullhead where she can hopefully get a proper education.

Do not walk away from this school...RUN!!! My daughter has a 4.0 that she works hard for, thank goodness her previous school gave her the skills and knowledge to do so! This is the worst school any of my children have ever attended. We are currently looking to move specifically because of this school. That is a sad thing to say since the class sizes are so small. If just half of the teachers, and the principal cared more, the student would as well and it could be top notch. Eliminating our sports one by one doesn't help at all, as all there is for these kids is drugs, alcohol, sex and gambling in this town.Clark County is of no help here either, as we are the least of their concerns compared to the Vegas/Henderson area. The graduation rate looks wonderful on paper, but that's only after they kick out, or run off the children they could care less about.

Because my children enjoyed attending Bennett Elementary so much, we have tried to stay in Laughlin until they graduate from High School. They seem to like Laughlin Jr./Sr. High so far. However, the Principal, "Dr. Whatever," is rude and arrogant and doesn't seem to care enough to work with or help the students and their families.

I have had the privilege of teaching in many fine schools. I have had the privilege of working with excellent principals, however; Laughlin is by far, the best experience I've had in teaching. The school is well managed and teachers are treated as professionals here. My colleagues and I care deeply for the success of all of our students and work diligently towards that end. Decisions in the school are made with the best interest of students as center. The school is a very safe, and caring place in which to work or attend classes. If I wanted a change, I have the opportunity to move and teach anywhere I choose at this point in my life and career. I choose to teach in Laughlin at this combination Middle School and High School. I truly enjoy the interaction with my students and with my colleagues. This is a wonderful school.

I have raised my children, but now my granddaughter, who lives with me, will be in her senior year coming . I was impressed with the special attention when I enrolled her this past school year. Everyone was very helpfull making the transaction easy for her as well as myself. Two of my other grandchildren graduated from this school and I never had any complaints on their schooling.

Laughlin is a great school. in the 7 years i attended (6-12th) there were about 5 fights (half of them you could barely even call that), we were a 3 time high acheiving school in the No Child Left Behind initiative, and now i attend a 4 year university thanks to the excellence of my teahcers.

This is the worst school. Besides poorer educational levels, these children seem to be more aggressive than normal. My child has had a few incidents that were above normal. Not wanting me to interfere she went to the office personnel herself. Three different personnel literally blew her off. We are moving specifically because of this school.

I agree with what the other parents wrote. Our son had a horrible two years there, with no help from teacher or principal. We moved just so our son can attend a different school. That is really sad because they don't have many students the school could be so much more if there were people who cared about our kids futures. I would never move back to laughlin because of this school.

The level of parent involvement would be higher if the parents could get in touch with the teachers. They have a great tool for communication, Intouch online, but unfortunately many of the teachers do not use it. One teacher took his grades off, another hasn't updated grades since November. It is a wonderful tool for communicating grades to parents, please use it. Science classes are all worksheet based, there are almost no labs. The school does not work to help students be successful.

This schools lack of education is horrific. The average child that attends this school will graduate well below the avereage of any kid in the district. The lack of leadership through our principal and others that lead the school are horrible. Testing scores at Laughlin High School are always below the average which shows in itself that there is not enough time being spent in academics and that teachers do not strive to push there students to there full capability! Actions taken towards the students for there behavior is way over rated also, it is if they would rather put children trhough boot camp rather then teach them what they are supposed to. Many teachers demoralize the students from what many of the kids have told me. If you are looking for a good school for your child to attend then Laughlin High School is not the one!!!
