This school has an excellent group of teachers. I love that they work to balance the diversity in a postive way and do not make an issue of thr racial differences of the students.


Posted April 10, 2005

Ethnic ratios are unbalanced. Test scores are below national averages. Language barriers consume valuable class time & hinder progress for many students. This school is in need of serious academic intervention & new leadership.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 20, 2005

Students were offered a tutoring program, at no cost to the students. Because not enough students signed up, the program was cancelled. Even one student signing up was a call for help that did not get answered. No other alternatives were offered or provided to the students that did sign up. Does this mean these students will be left behind?

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.
