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.

School was canceled today due to a NV Energy power outage in our area that was affecting over 2000 of their customers just on the East side of the valley due to the heavy rainfall. We appreciated everyone's understanding, and apologize for any inconvenience that this unforeseen event has caused you and your family. We have been notified by NV Energy power outage has been fixed and restored. So, school will be back in session tomorrow morning as usual. Also, because today would have been Pizza Wednesday for those students that ordered pizza for lunch, we will be moving pizza day to this Friday, instead. Orders for Panda bowl lunches were placed as usual for tomorrow (Thursday).
We received a couple calls from parents with concerns that they did not receive the school-wide text/email this morning. If you are having the same issue, please check your contact information in Infinite Campus, or you can also come in to the office and check your Infinite Campus contact information with Ms. Helen.
We are happy to see the rainfall in the desert, however, we do wish to caution our families to be extra careful and safe on the roads especially in flooding areas.
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.
