I attended both Saville Middle School and Arbor View High School in North Las Vegas and it was great! The middle school had some good school spirit and most of the staff was pretty nice as well. My peers enjoyed the sports and the food wasn’t all that bad either. However, the high school that I attended was even better. The teachers cared for the students, the sports and teams were spectacular, and the spirit was superb. I was forunate enough to have attended some of the better schools in the district, but some of the others are not as bad either.

The Clark County School District is a different experience depending on where you live. From elementary school all the way to high school, I could always tell that I was not always given the best chances. Many teachers seemed to have little to no interest in teaching; rather these teachers cared for their next pay check. Often times, CCSD made terrible rules regarding funding, and they often disregarded schools that needed financial aid. I encourage parents to advocate for a better quality of education and funding, the future of CCSD students rely on this. My recommendation to CCSD is to pay attention to the people of your district. Focus on improvement rather than take away from students. Encourage clubs and higher academic scores rather than drop them every year to receive "better" statics. We can score better on tests if you give us a chance.
Your school experience in the Clark County school district is purely what you make it. There are several resources available to students to help with scholarships, work after high school, and programs for low income families. However, the administration in these schools is overworked and understaffed. This leads to a seeming lack of care in the schools and it is very difficult to get important paperwork done in a timely manner. The sports programs in Clark county are very good and filled with excellent athletes. Several colleges in Kentucky and North Dakota have special recruiting deals with schools from this district. Overall, it is the largest district in Nevada with 95 schools. Resources are stretched thin and it is reflected in staff salaries and school resources.
