In doing research I have found there is only one high school in central Sparks that has the Navy Jr. ROTC program, and that is Reed. The Jr. and Middle schools are Lloyd Diedrichsen Elementary School, and Lou Mendive Middle School. How are those schools/area to live? DS really doesn't want to move as he is active in NJROTC but if we can get him in a school with the same program that would soften it.

No comments? Nobody knows about Sparks' schools?

Sorry but the comments seem to come in few and far between waves around this forum. My daughter was slated to attend Mendive next year but we are moving. I have spoken to many parents about the school before we knew we were moving and had no complaints. HOWEVER....next year this public middle school will be wearing uniforms. Very unhappy students and some parents not crazy about it either. As far as academics...sorry about the generic answer but like I said..no complaints. Reed High has a LOT of extracurricular programs like njrotc, us history clubs that compete nationally and math...those are your outside the box clubs and programs as well as traditional like languages and sports. The only negative I have heard (I have friends whose kids go there but mine is in middle school) is supposedly drugs are on the rise there. I havent heard anything about gangs although all schools have both.
I know nothing about the elementary school you asked about. I would suggest greatschools dot org. Word of mouth and that site says the three you should look into are Van Gorder(not in Mendive or Reed zone), Beasley (IS is both zones) and Sepulveda (in zone DEPENDING where you live). Look on the washoe county school district site. They have a zoning map. Good luck to you. Mine is going through a move too and it can be tough.

Just saw one of your responses to another thread and you mentioned Damonte. Beautiful school on an ugly site surrounded with beautiful homes filled with average teachers.

Unfortunately Damante is too far from where my husband's job will be. Trying to minimize the disruption to son by continuing with the NJROTC involvement. That's only at D and Reed.
