Clark County School District Reviews

They've prepared me for my transition into college. Their oppertunities and challenges that they uphold, gave me a bright future. Being in Special Education was my whole life up till beginning of my high school years. I then challenged myself to take Honors and AP classes. I also joined UNLV Upward Bound and Fulfillment Fund Las Vegas. They helpped me throughout the whole journey throughout High School. I did other things such as athletics and college readiness workshops, like SAT/ACT workshops, that Clark County offered. I then Graduated as the highest diploma, Advanced Honors, and graduated top 12 in my class. I'm now in UNLV running full time and involved in many activities across campus. Thanks Clark County!
Review Clark County School District
The Clark County School District is extremely satisfying. In which, the academic courses vary in its wide variety of choices; giving students the ability to yield into any career of their choice. Additionally, teachers and staff within the district are significantly helpful towards individual's who want to succeed in school; and student's who are in need of help and guidance. However, despite the rectitude of teachers, there are few that are unsatisfactory. This being because, multiple teachers in the "2015-2016" school year have been arrested on the account of personal misdemeanors or inappropriate actions within the classroom. With this said, the district needs to require more strict background checks on all hired staff members. All in all, the staff of Clark County's school district is substantial; and with the help of improved staff hiring, students will be able to pursue a better education.
Being a part of a school in the Clark County School District is really challenging sometimes because Nevada as a whole stuggles with academic performances. Some schools like Desert Pines High School struggles with their gruaduation rate going up. Their Extra curricular activities are very limited due to the unsufficent resources. Chaparral High School on the other hand, has plenty of extra curricular acivites and 99% of the people who were in Marching band Graduated. That is truly remarkable. I believe that some schools in the Clark County District need extra curricular activivites. Overall my expierence as a student in the Clark County School Disrict is exceedingly well. Most teachers are respectable. The learning eviorment is mostly positve and its great.
