West Las Vegas Public Schools Reviews

West Las Vegas as a district are like a family. They are not very good at analyzing teacher to student learning. I know from expierence atleast six out of twenty staff teachers careless about the students learning. Because I have expierenced multipe occasions where i struggle with various teachers and not many made an effort to point me to resources, take the time to review work, or even help me with working. They need to improve on hearing the concerns of the students because thier highschool degrees are at risk because they dont properly evaluate teachers.

Excellent teachers while I was there, great campus, friendly employees. The counselors did everything they could to help me and also answered any questions I had. We had an amazing band a choir program under the direction of Mr. Jose Munoz and Mr. Arnell Arellanes.
West Las Vegas was an amazing experience for me! What I loved about the school was how many courses it offer and how the teachers reach out to the students. Each student was helped no matter how much time it took. Another amazing thing was how students got alone so easily. It was amazing and if I could relive it I would.
