I heard people say that henderson schools are better than Las Vegas schools. Is that true? I thought all the schools are clark county. If anyone can give me some information that would be really great.

All schools are in the Clark County School District.

That being said, some regions of the valley tend to have better schools than others. It's largely a socioeconomic thing. Areas like Summerlin and Henderson tend to have the better schools.

It depends on the school. I think Coronado and Silverado are good schools but don't know much about the others here. And yes, all schools are in the CCSD.

Green Valley and Coronado are the top ranked high schools in Henderson (in that order, last time I checked). The feeder elementary and middle schools will generally be very good as well.

And to Vegas Joe, I believe Silverado is actually in Las Vegas.

These may be some helpful resources for comparing schools:

You are right it is in Vegas. Some kids from Henderson attend there.
