The secretary is consistently rude, partially becauce the principal is too proud to admit the problem. Therefore she continues to be rude to many parents. Unbelieveable!

Honestly I couldnt say anything bad about this school. This is my sons first year in school. He absoultly loves his class and his teacher she is great. She has a great personality and is very patient with the kids. So far so good for us!

My child needs extra help with certain things, and is frequently a target of bullies due to this. The principal and WCSD only intervened after my child completely lost his temper with the other children. The teacher that he was placed with is terribly negative and only puts my child down. The principal was too proud to admit that he placed my child in a terrible environment and switch teachers, to everyone's detriment. People like him are one of the biggest problems with our school system.

this was my daughters first year in school, and unfortunately she was matched with a teacher with a really bad attitude. this teacher always complains about how many kids she has and loses patience with the kids over minor things like taking to long on a project, and will proceed to take away their recess for these minor things. my daughter hates school now, when once she use to be so excited.

This school is great! I love the staff, and their experience with education, and children. I have 4 kids that attend there, and they love it.

The principle Mr. Bert is great, he is very involved with the kids and he incurages them to read instead of watch tv. You will also see him out helping the crossing gaurds before and after school, and even out on the playground sometimes at recess laying with the kids. Both my daughters love thier teachers and the teachers love having me in the classroom whenever I have time to help out.

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.
