This is by far the best school my son has attended! The classrooom atmosphere is AWESOME...the classroom students per class is smaller than most! Giving the teachers to tend to students better and one on one basis! The staff is amazing!! And the school over all is excellent!

My daughter has been going to this school for three years, my son for one (he is in first grade this year). I am extremely impressed by the small class sizes, attention to individual student needs, and high expectations set for the students at this school. Everyone is friendly, my kids love their teachers, and the activities this school puts together for the students reminds me of my time in elementary school many years ago. There is literally nothing I've been able to find lacking at this school, and I feel very fortunate that my kids get to start their education in such a wonderful place. A big thank you to the teachers and staff at Hugh Gallagher!

I have two daughters at this school. Although I did not grow up here in Nevada, this community has made our family feel most welcome. The entire faculty and staff at Hugh Gallagher Elementary is dedicated to helping our children learn and succeed in the world. Kudos for a job well done!

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.
