Squires is a combination of dedicated teachers and a caring community. It's a gem of a school.

I feel that they have great after school programs for the children to be involved in. The teachers spend lots of time teaching the children in ways that they can understand and appreciate.

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.
