Best Public Schools in Zip Code 89149


The 89149 zip code area of Las Vegas, Nevada is home to 10 schools, including 6 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 3 high schools, all part of the Clark County School District, except for Imagine School Mountain View, a public charter school. The data reveals a stark divide in academic performance, with standout schools like Northwest Career-Technical Academy High School and Divich Kenneth Elementary School significantly outperforming the district and state averages, while other schools struggle.

Northwest Career-Technical Academy High School ranks 14th out of 96 Nevada high schools and has a 4-star rating, with 38.9% of 11th graders proficient in math and 81.8% proficient in English, far exceeding the district and state averages. Divich Kenneth Elementary and Thompson Sandra L Elementary School also rank in the top 100 elementary schools in the state and have 4-star ratings, with strong academic performance. In contrast, schools like Peterson Academic Center J-Senior High School have much lower test scores and rankings.

Economic disadvantage, as measured by free/reduced lunch rates, appears to be a key factor influencing school performance, with the highest-poverty schools generally having the weakest academic outcomes. Spending per student and student-teacher ratios also seem to play a role, with the better-resourced and smaller class size schools performing better. The data highlights the importance of school choice and access to high-quality educational options, especially for families in economically disadvantaged areas, as the stark differences in performance between schools in the same zip code underscores the need for targeted interventions and support to ensure all students have the opportunity to succeed.
