This is my family s first year attending the school since we transferred from a private school. We really love it. We met the principal once over the summer and he remembered us on the first day of school. The principals, teachers and office staff are very caring and value the kids and parent input. ...  Read more

We recognize that the school is overcrowded; however, its principal, teachers and support staff are phenomenal! We're fortunate enough to be able to afford private school, but this is where we have our children going. We spent four months looking for a home in its catchment area because our children ...  Read more

Givens is an amazing school! The teachers/staff are knowledgeable and caring. My daughter loves to attend school on a daily basis. She has not had one bad experience and this is starting her third year at this school. The only thing Givens needs to improve on is class room sizes. I believe in order ...  Read more

Very unsatisfied. Too crowded! I agree to the comment that Clark County is one of the worst in the nation. This is why there's gangs, shootings, bullying etc. You will not find this in a private school. There are few private schools that are not too expensive out there. I guess even if you live in Summerlin, ...  Read more

I guess everywhere is the same. I will transfer my children to private school. I do not want to regret later on. Clark ...  Read more

Due to the school being overcrowded, my son doesn't get the attention he needed. I do not normally say any mean things, but it is like everyday, this school surprise me. Too many children and there are not enough staff to watch the children. Poor children, at the end, they are the ones who has to go ...  Read more

Yes the school is crowded because EVERYONE wants their kids in this school!!! There are so many that are not zoned for Givens but circumventing the system to enroll their children in this great school. It's a shame because it is crowded. They should require more than a 'lease agreement' to enroll ...  Read more

This school has a few really great teachers but it has become so overcrowed in the last 2 years that my child does not get the attention she needs. They do not have enough staff to teach the children in the type of environment they need to prosper. My child was injured recently due to so many children ...  Read more

Warning! If you have the opportunity to send your child(ren) to any other school than this one, please do so. It is a phenomenal school, with a dedicated administration and staff, as well as wonderful teachers, however, it is crippled by severe over-crowding with no relief and only ever more over-crowding ...  Read more
