As a former student and prospected teacher for the district, I believe average sums up its entirety. I attended Ruthe Deskin Elementary as a child, then Leavitt Middle School before transferring to Lied Middle School in seventh grade, and finished it off by graduating from Shadow Ridge High School. I lived in middle-class area and had access to outside resources throughout my entire school career. Others, anybody who lived outside affluent areas, did not have the same access I did. The teachers are underpaid; protests against CCSD held by teachers were seen earlier this year. Test scores were low because the books were too out of date. Issues related to the school district were always money problems. The cons, for the most part, outweigh the pros. I do see change, however, and not all hope is lost. There is room for improvement, and with the push from employees of the district, it will soon come.

Throughout my elementary, middle, and high school years of being with CCSD I've had a very typical school experience, made friends, lost friends, agreed with teachers, argued with teachers, and of course took the required classes. However every part, meaning elementary, middle, and high school all taught me something different. In elementary school I learned I have an artistic side. During middle school I learned about my own style and characteristics about my personality. Now that I am in high school I learned how prioritize my time and I have become far more independent then I have ever been before.
Clark County has its flaws. They have recently faced a protest to provide teachers with money they previously promised them and faced the challenge of enforcing more safety to all schools following the October 1st shooting. Despite all these problems they have struggled with, the people of Clark County come together in time of need. Teachers show dedication to their students like their own children. Students stand up for their peers like siblings. Parents work with teachers like co-parents. Clark County proudest trait is its diversity. There are some days, I forget that racism, sexism, etc. exist due to the welcoming arms of Clark County. Growing up in Los Angeles and moving to Clark County, I have always wanted to move back because of the diverse city I called home. But over years of adjustment I found my true home where everyone is accepted and not much conflict over the meaning of "everyone". Our definition of "everyone" is in fact anyone.
