Silver Sands Montessori
Promoting a Community of Growth
Silver Sands Montessori Charter School is the only tuition-free school in southern Nevada providing education in a Montessori environment, while adhering to Common Core standards and subject to state testing. A Montessori Environment teaches to the whole child, in a stimulating and safe multi-age class setting, that allows for movement, hands-on learning, individual responsibility and choices. Our goal is to prepare children for life through community, character building and an environment of mutual respect.

Our appreciation continues to our amazing staff and families for your support during these uncertain times. We recognize that this is a challenge to families and we are trying to provide as much flexibility as possible. Although distance learning is unchartered territory for Silver Sands, all of our teachers are finding fun and innovative ways to reach out to their students and some great learning is being achieved. We continue to hear positive reports each day from our teachers that students and families are responding with their check-ins and completed assignments and goals. Keep up the great work Sidewinders!

NV School Ratings Report
The Nevada School Performance Framework (NSPF) is an annual summary of school performance developed by Nevada stakeholders. The NSPF meets State and Federal policy requirements and provides each school level with a unique rating system. The NSPF is a compensatory accountability system made up of a series of Performance Indicators and Measures. This means that low performance in one indicator/measure can be made up for by high performance in another. Performance Indicators are broad general categories within the framework, while Measures are the building blocks of a Performance Indicator. Anchored on statewide performance expectations, schools earn points based on their performance on each Measure. These points are added together to produce an overall summative rating, or a Star Rating.
School performance ratings can be found through the Nevada Report Card website.
