Incredibly caring for it's students. This is a title one school, and has a lot of low income individuals. What does that mean you ask? Well people use it as a means to make judgment upon others. Not everyone can afford some rich private school. I will tell you that they get grants because they are title one and they use them to assist the students. My child goes to this school and I couldn't be happier. For the two years she has attended they have made sure her needs are met in all areas, educationally, mentally, and socially. I was astonished at their assistance and how much they went out of their way to help. So, please do not judge this school flip it to a positive and be willing to see that this school sees the potential of each one of it's students and makes adjustments for their education. I think that is a win.

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.
