Clark County school district (CCSD) is very large, and the conditions of each school within it definitely vary. However, the two schools I have attended in this district were incredible! My elementary school had great teachers and made an effort to include every student at all times. My high school, West Career, and Technical Academy, also has exceptional staff, but it also has a very safe environment and a graduation rate that is over 90%. I love the amount of diversity in the Clark County School District. Las Vegas has a very diverse population, and the schools within it showcase this clearly. The one thing I'd love to see change in the district is the size of the district. CCSD is one of the biggest school districts in the country, and I believe that if it was separated into smaller parts, education levels in students could be increased and modified for groups of children with specific educational needs much more effectivley.

The Clark County school district is a good school district. Clark County offered many ways to help their students and many ways to help parents get involved with what their students were doing. They were very helpful for school and in general! Clark County set up many concerns for students in case they need someone to be there for them or anything that was needed. During the crazy times of the 2020-2021 school district, they decided that every student needs to meet with a counselor to inform them that we are doing good and if we need anything that they are there for us and can help us through it. Clark County school district took bullying very seriously as their schools had very strict policies. Clark County has so much to offer for me from kindergarten all the way to senior year and I am grateful for that.
What I like about CCSD is the diversity among the schools. I love that there are students that come from all over the world. Growing up I struggled with my identity and finding where I fit in. Being in this district I realized that there are a lot of other kids like me. That had a big influence on my life. CCSD is also full of amazing schools. There are schools dedicated towards arts and performance, career and tech, and so much more. This has given many kids an opportunity to realize what they are really interested in when it comes to their futures. CCSD also has many amazing teachers, and staff members that continue to impact the lives of many students. The only thing I would change about CCSD is that students should also have a voice. We do not necessarily have an option when it comes down to a lot of things. Adults tend to make the choices for us, when really students are the ones attending schools, and we feel unheard sometimes. We just want to enjoy school!
