Two of my kids attended this school and as an educator myself, I knew it was a great school. My thoughts were further confirmed when I moved away from the state and my children started attending a different school. Their new school, even though it is considered a top ranking school, pails in comparison. The teachers at Jesse Hall always challenged my kids and met their individual needs perfectly. Staff and Principal are great. In my book, it's the best school around!

Jesse Hall is an amazing school with wonderful teachers who truly teach our children; not only academically but teach our children respect, self worth, and encourage them to be better children. I feel my children are safe at this school and are getting a wonderful education for being a public school!

There are so many reasons why I love Jesse Hall Elementary. From the minute you walk in the front doors, you feel like you are at home with a family of staff. The teachers are amazing, the administration is amazing, with open arms and minds to hear all that we have parents have as concerns for the benefit and welfare of our children's academic progress. I am very involved,and love a school that encourages parental involvement all across the board. They are very organized and structured and I love that. These are just a few reasons why I think this school should be voted as the best!

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.
