As a teacher I can say without a doubt, that if your child is self motivated and truly wants to learn this is the place. The teachers are truly involved and connect with each student and will give them an education far better than in CCSD. If I had a child I would send him/her to this school. If your student needs motivated and does not have an IEP then this is not the school. This is a serious school for serious students. About their Special Education Department. One of the finest I have ever seen. All the students, IEP and non-IEP are accepted and never have I heard of bullying or teasing due to a learning disability.
As a university professor, I have chosen to enroll my 4 children here. I have seen the graduating students and was very impressed with them. The academic program is the BEST Nevada has to offer- public or private. If you are considering 1:, I highly suggest that you enroll your child so that they will have the best education.
