this school is fantastic. the teachers and students are very well behaved. it offers a jazz band, orchestra, band, and guitar. there is also choir for everybody. the schools assemblies are very fun to watch. there is also fun places you could go if you have been good for the whole year. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYBODY IN THE UNIVERSE!!!!!!!!!!

The school is full of less than desireables. Therefore the grades are awful. My child had much better schooling in another state. I do not recommend this school!

There are aspects of Charles Arthur Middle School that I love. The principal and Dean are very good at what they do, anything that I have had questions or concerns the have been very helpful. All the teachers are qualified. However some are better than others. The main thing that I am concerned about is that there is not any transition among Elementary and middle school. For lack of better terms Charles Arthur Middle is Junior High School. I would like to see more teachers and also more communication among the teachers and parents in regards to homework and other concerns. The fact that the school is rural inhibits that funding and staff that is necessary to operate the school. I do like the school otherwise.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT 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.
