Since 2003, Southern Highlands Preparatory School in Las Vegas has been known for its excellence in preschool through eighth grade education. Our Links to Learning preschool curriculum prepares children for kindergarten and beyond by developing important academic, social, and emotional skills. In the elementary and middle-school years, we combine a rigorous, standards-based curriculum with experiences that develop 21st century skills such as creativity, collaboration, and communication. We create a safe, supportive learning environment in which teachers focus on the strengths and learning styles of each child.
Connecting classroom learning to the real world
Our curriculum is founded on challenging content that engages students and inspires them to develop a love of learning. However, students need more than academic knowledge to achieve success. Field trips enable students to make real-life connections to lessons in the classroom, which is why we like to take advantage of local resources such as Red Rock Canyon, the CSN Planetarium, and Lake Mead.

Southern Highlands Preparatory School Reviews
There are many school-based sports and extra-curricular events that allow all the families to get to know each other well, creating a safe and homely environment. "Parent's Night Out" and "Movie Night" are just a few of the family events. Field trips to Catalina Island and Pali are priceless educational and social learning experiences for the students!
The STEM education is second to none. SHPS focuses on the students learning the material and applying the knowledge, as opposed to simply memorizing and regurgitating mindless data for testing purposes.
The education, friendships, and experiences my daughter had at SHPS have prepared her well for high school, as well as for life itself. I vehemently recommend SHPS to all families in LV!
