This school has an unstable administration. Favoritism does not support teachers or other staff members. Inconsistent leadership, priorities and consequences. There is a cat living in administrators office. Unhealthy and filthy environment
—Submitted by a teacher

—Submitted by a parent

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.
