I think YIS is a joke. I believe it's the only school in the nation that houses it's 5th grade students (10 and 11 year olds) with 8th grades. Yes, the 5th grade is Jr. High in this one horse town. No extra curricular activities, no drama club, guitar club, cheerleading, golf, nada! A terrible school

I am very pleased with the staff at Yerington Intermediate. I feel the staff care deeply about improving the education of my son. I am pleased to help the staff any way possible. During the time my son has been a student he has grown in many ways. The staff faces challenges many do not see to engage students and to provide a strong educational 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.
