My son and I moved to henderson last year and he is a freshman at liberty high school. My son and I are Latino and he has had to put up with a lot of racial violence between the mexicans and black students. There are fights everyday either in school or at avellino Park next to the school. Most of this is gangs. I have tried to talk to the school, but they say there doing everything they can but itís getting worse. Does anyone know what my options are for charter or? Is pinecrest any good?? It is next to our apartment. I canít pay for private. Thx.

No personal experience but my neighbor's elementary school-aged kids go there and they love it.

If you're even remotely thinking about Pinecrest, I'd get an application in soon. The application window closes at the end of the month with the lottery on 3/1.

Note there are several campuses, not all of which have grades 9-12.

apply for magnet schools and charter schools if you haven't done so already. otherwise, try to get a zone variance request to green valley highschool or coronado.

Look into Coral Academy of Science. 10 min east of Liberty at Sandy Ridge and Sunridge Heights.

Their average ACT is 23, higher than any school (public or magnet/CTA) in CCSD.

They have an open house next week you could attend.
