This school is awesome and offers a lot of assistance for families. They have classes for parents to help them help their children. They have programs for families in need. The are big on parent evolvement and volunteering. They are a S.T.E.M. academy. 4 of my 5 children have attended Veteran's and I am very satisfied academically!

Outstanding school! They emphasize STEM education, teachers and principals are out and visible, they care about the students and are friendly to the parents. Expectations are high, awards assemblies, special events, emphasize common core standards - this is a top notch school and I wouldn't want my daughter going to any other school!

I went to this school from 2000 to 2006. I personally dislike this school, for the time that I was there. It was just the way how they didn't improve anything, until I was in my final year there. I do not know how the school is now, or how it has improved. All I know is that they invested in soccer goals and new playground equipment (for the smaller kids); rather then tabbles for outside, where I (and many others) had to sit in the dirt to eat most of the school year. And how they took out the theatre and only gave privlages to anyone below 3rd grade for music. The staff is really nice, the rooms are clean and sanitary. Its good for an average kid. I just know its gotten better since 2006.

The staff at Veterans is first rate. I have three children who have finished or are currently attending Veterans. They are doing extremely well and their high test scores prove it.

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.
