This is one of the best schools I've sent any of my children to. My son loves it! The staff and faculty are all about the kids and their safety and education while still making the school experience fun. We are entering the 3rd year my son is a student and we look forward to it!

If you can find a better elementary school in washoe county, go for it! I believe that this school is awesome. The teachers, staff and parents make this a place where my children want to go and learn and have fun at the same time.

This school is outstanding. The buildings are old but well maintained. Newer buildings don't make the school, the faculity and staff do and they are top-notch. My children love it there and we as parents are very pleased with their development. Rock-on Peavine.

I graduated from Peavine Elementary school the year of 2004. I can not speak for how it is now, but I do not think that I could have been more prepared for middle and high school. I am currently a sophomore at Reno High, with a ranking of #1 in my entire class. I owe it all to Peavine.

This is an amazing school! I was lucky enough to complete my internship in this small school community. The staff are very dedicated and really work hard during and after school to keep things running smoothly. wonderful administration. I have nothing but compliments! Keep it up!

My son went to another elementary before Peavine and I was so surprised by how much we loved Peavine in comparison. The teachers were amazing, the kids and other parents were awesome. They've got a ton of extracurricular activities for the kids. We are now moving to another school in town and I'm very very sad to leave Peavine.

This School is way better than the school my children went to before. The teachers actually make sure the children are learning and if they have any problems with my children the do call me and inform me of the problems, which I greatly appreciate!

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.
