We are moving to Winnemucca shortly, have one daughter that will be at this school, but after the reviews, am seriously considering homeschool or K-12. Why isn't something done if is is really this bad? Will a nice kid survive here? I had to rate to comment although I know nothing of the school.

My children had a very hard time being educated at this school. The attitude here is very poor. the staff makes the students and parents feel as if they should be honored they are there at all.

this school is very losey there are several parents i know that have pulled there kids out of this school and put in home school because they have no choose.(they get a better education and it might hurt them socially but schooling is more important) the high school is a much better and the staff is much nicer. the jr high staff is rude and lazy not to menchin non-cooperative with students or parents. giving the kids 3 mins to get to one side of the school to the other is impossible something needs to be done about this. the kids are there to learn not to be stressed about getting to one class to another they should be givin twice the time they are given. higean in this school is taribble the teachers wont even let the kids go to the bathroom. if they let them go they complain about it

Unorganized - Lack of coordination - Most of the eductors on site seem to think they are above all - Not willing to work above and beyond with students - Terrible website - Lack of communication with the parents - Rude Adminstrative Staff - Kids still have to stand outside even if it is 10 - 17* - and snowing and raining - until the proper time of 8 am - then the students have 5 minutes to get to lockers, and get to class - they have a total of 3 minutes to get from one class to another - some teachers will not let students use the facilities during their class. This school is not recommended, however, its the only one in Winnemucca

I do not care for this school. My children are always being harrassed by others. My one son comes home with bruises everyday - from trying to get through the halls. This place is totally unorganized - They do not have a good learning environment.

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.
