They've prepared me for my transition into college. Their oppertunities and challenges that they uphold, gave me a bright future. Being in Special Education was my whole life up till beginning of my high school years. I then challenged myself to take Honors and AP classes. I also joined UNLV Upward Bound and Fulfillment Fund Las Vegas. They helpped me throughout the whole journey throughout High School. I did other things such as athletics and college readiness workshops, like SAT/ACT workshops, that Clark County offered. I then Graduated as the highest diploma, Advanced Honors, and graduated top 12 in my class. I'm now in UNLV running full time and involved in many activities across campus. Thanks Clark County!

Being ranked the 48th district in school quality rating as of August 1, 2016, this county lacks in the funding and supervision that is required of a school district. I have personally enjoyed my current high school, Rancho High School, but with low budgeting, it is very difficult for the school to keep up-to-date with textbooks and school necessities. As well as the freezing of salaries for teachers and unfair pay check differences, this district treats its finest educators with unfair rankings and horrendous standardized testing that doesn't allow teachers to properly measure a students intellect. Regardless of all these setbacks, I personally want to recognize every teacher that pushed me to my potential because it made me into the person I am today; someone who thinks logically and takes everything in my surroundings into consideration because they recognized the importance of education, as opposed to the county itself.

Clark County School District does an excellent job in striving towards specific goals with the well being and progression of students at the center of their focus. However, as a lack of teachers and administration is in the environment, several schools lack genuine educators that are qualified to teach students on an in-depth level. Yet, for the amount of teachers that do not illustrate a strong will to shift a student's lives in educations, there is a plethora of more teachers that dedicate their lives to the knowledge of their students. As a cultural observation within Clark County, many schools have a widespread variety of more opportunities than others on a regular basis. However, as Clark County continues to grow and expand as an a source of education, more resources and commendable success stories are deriving from the students that leave the school environment.
