I'm going into my 2nd year here, and it's amazing! Teacher's care about you, and they always want to help. Teams become families and they bring you closer! Go BOSS!!

My son goes to school here adn it seems great the teachers and staff. My son has learning issues and grade issues and they do help. I was a little concern the first day a older child kept runniong into him and never said "Excuse me", I told my son maybe it was an accident. Staff is great though for sure.

I go here currently and I love it! The teachers are fun, and not biased towards certain students. They teach us fun stuff and I LOVE our team cheer assemblies! They don't tolerate bullying or harrasment, and their main goal is to help us learn in a safe and fun enviroment. Go neon thunder!

I went here for both years. The teachers and principal are great. The classes are fun, and you learn tons. Everyone is supportive, bullying hardly ever goes on, and is not tolerated at all. Theres an advanced placement team if you do well in elementary. Only the language department and the dances could be improved. I loved it there. (Dynasty rocks!)

This is not that great of a school at all, it's terrible. I went there and the teachers and the bullying are a huge problem there. I would not reccomend it to anyone.

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.
