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
Clark County School District plays strange favorites, distributing its funding and additional resources terribly. It gives it to underperforming schools (non-magnet schools), which is find, until one realizes that this means magnet schools with science focuses have no resources to conduct its experiments or access current resources. What's worse, the non-magnet students attending magnet schools have even less access to funding, and get all the second-rate teachers considered not of good enough quality to teach magnet kids, leaving them at a severe disadvantage even in high-achieving environments.
Really, the school district does a great deal of its work to appear functional, without actually using common sense to address its problems.
Clark County School District is often overwhelmed by its size, being one of the largest in the entire country. However, to make matters worse, it is often plagued with extreme levels of bureaucracy and policies that slow down even the simplest of changes from occurring. The sports are very limited compared to neighboring states like California and Utah, which have water polo, lacrosse, and men's volleyball teams. The students do not perform particularly well in national examinations either- but that could certainly be in partial fault to the fact that many students in Las Vegas are homeless or come from far less than ideal familial situations.
