I feel this school is excellent in preparing my 3 children and other children for their future education. The teachers, aides, office staff and the principal make the children and parents feel involved, and happy to attend this great school. Great Job!

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.
