We are relocating to Henderson Nevada in June. My daughter will be going into 4th grade next year. Can anyone let me know about the schools.
It looks like she would be going to Ulis Newton, but also has the option to go to Coral Academy of Science.
If anyone has any pros or cons with either of these schools or any other recommendations for schools, please let me know.

Thanks

My DD attended the Coral Academy of Science school in Reno from 4th to 7th grade. We moved to TX 6 weeks ago and sadly had to pull her out and put her in school here in TX.

While I do not know much about the Vegas campus I can tell you that the Reno campus is the best school in N. NV and the high school ranks 2nd in the state.

Excellent excellent school. My DD is in a good school here in TX but its not Coral and boy do we miss it.

I would encourage you to give it a try, it was the best thing we did for DD. She is currently enrolled in a TX deemed "exemplary" school in the top math class the school has to offer and she is still ahead of the entire class. For 8th grade she will be able to start Algebra just like she would have at Coral so we are hoping she is not too far ahead and remains challenged.

Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions that I might as a parent be able to answer

Neither school is noteworthy. CAS is a state charted school so is out of the CCSD system. Its accountability numbers however are not impressive. It is rather new so this could be start of problems.

Your daughter is probably OK in either but I would be very careful about the middle school in a couple of years .
