I am so privileged and proud to work with an amazing group of people. Our staff is phenomenal and our students are the cream of the crop.

My son loves this school and his teachers,and all dealings I have had with the school are polite and courteous, the principal is wonderful. As for the curriculum I feel they are challenging my son which is good and what I think is needed. The student to teacher racio is very good, and my son has never complained about this school or the teachers.

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.
