I have been very pleased with Y.E.S. My daughter attended this school for four years. Every teacher brought their all to educating our community. Demographically, Y.E.S. faces language obstacles that often render their achievements null when on paper. Yet at every test-time period, the administration and teachers rallied our troops to new heights. My daughter, even though she was among adversity, she rose to what I thought was her highest level. It may sound trite, no child is left behind at Y.E.S. The teachers are just that remarkable.

Y.E.S. Has very dedicated and caring staff members from the teachers, paraprofessionals to the support staff. Unfortunately the administrator does not provide for good leadership. She interacts very little with the students and parents. Also, the lack of leadership has allowed a small number of teachers to make administrative decisions about what the professional decisions we are allowed to make in our own classrooms. Despite this, the teachers work very hard to provide the best education to the students. I am a former staff member.

I have two children in this school and was very very happy with the teachers and how well they taught my children this year. My kids love this school.

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.
