I loved living and learning in Clark County. Though I wish things weren't so rough in some places but, other than that, it's a great place!

Clark County is a great environment and very welcoming. My school is located in Clark County and I love the friendly people and families. Clark County rarely has any problems and the crime rate is low. Even though some occurrences happen here and there, metro police are always are on the scene of the crime in a timely manner. I would recommend Clark County to new residents of Las Vegas.
Clark County is an amazing area to live in. Their system is very attentive towards children's education by making sure each school has opportunities for everyone. Clark County had also been super supportive during the Covid-19 pandemic by ensuring that there was food available for children to come and pick up.
