Clark County School District Reviews

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.

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!
I like that the Clark County School District has a large variety of cultures, races, and religions which provides for a very diverse community. Because the county is so large, it helps to have large amounts of opportunity among all people including both students, teachers, and other administrative educators. I do however wish that the district would be more lenient towards children and their personal feelings. When the national school walkout for gun violence was happening. The district themselves tweeted out that if anyone were to walkout, there would be consequences. Considering that we dealt with such heartbreak a few months earlier due to gun violence, everyone thought they would be on board. Understanding that they are responsible for all kids and want to keep them safe, they should realize that we are trying to make a difference for ourselves and they should be proud of that.
