The mission of Clark County Public Schools is to join with the community to provide a safe, caring environment in a financially responsible manner for each student to achieve excellence. We believe that excellence is achieved by meeting the needs of all students; that mutual cooperation between schools and community is necessary to meet the needs of all students; that the faculty can achieve quality instruction and academic excellence when they work together; that poverty will not be an obstacle to excellence; and that all children will develop a respect for themselves as well as others.
Our centrally located district consists of two preschools, four elementary schools, one intermediate school, one junior high school, one high school, one day treatment center and one area technology center. We have over 5800 students and 950 full time certified and classified staff. We are proud that all CCPS teachers are highly qualified and we continue to recruit and retain educators of this level of excellence so that we can be certain that we are effectively meeting the educational needs of our most valuable resource—our students! Clark County Public Schools—One Community; One Vision: Life Ready. Where Every Student Matters.
