Run, don't walk!

My daughter went here for 9 years, and it was one of the worst decisions of her life. A terrible waste of $20,000 a year.

Roughly 2/3rds of the 8th grade class refused to return for 9
th grade, probably the worst retention rate of any K-12 school in Southern Nevada.

The math program is a basket case on life support, after hiring and firing substandard math teachers, year after year. An outside expert was brought into resuscitate the math program, but their recommendations were rejected as being too expensive. Independent outside testing data revealed that rank and file students were two years behind grade level in math. The school's go it alone approach to reviving their math program has not been successful or effective.

There's been a revolving-door hiring and firing history for other teaching positions too.

College admissions are mediocre at best, especially for a school that compared its quality to Meadows, Faith Lutheran and Bishop Gorman.  The quality of instruction and administration is not anywhere close to being comparable to the better private high schools in Las Vegas. Compared to these other schools, you are throwing away $20,000 a year to go here.

The administration is thin-skinned, imperious and officious, and will quickly retaliate and carry out reprisals against the children of any parents who dare to question the administration's practices.  The upper school principal is the worst offender, surrounded by a gaggle of yes-men sycophants and thronesniffers, who cheer her every vindictive, mean-spirited move against students and parents who dare to question or disagree with her.  

The school took hostile, adverse actions against me and my daughter, but refused to produce any evidence, refused to discuss or address our rebutting evidence, refused to afford any semblance of due process or right to be heard.  The school claims to follow Jewish law, but disregards it, all rubber stamped by a school head who claims to be a "Rabbi" but instead acts as a self-aggrandizing egotistical tyrant.

The school sent a letter to the parents of my daughter's classmates falsely claiming that I had directly contacted their children inappropriately -- a claim the school knew was false at the time they made it.

The school tried to force my daughter to leave the school mid-year without any refund of the prepaid unused portion of the school year tuition.

I will happily provide copies of all my emails with the school substantiating what I have written, upon the request of any interested party.

Run, don't walk!
