"Pretty much all the honest truth-telling there is in this world is done by children."
We, at Las Vegas Day School, are proud of our school. We could write volumes about the quality of our teachers and staff; the new, modern, state-of-the-art campus; and our challenging, yet realistic, academic expectations. We have many letters sent to us since 1961 from parents and grandparents commending our school for everything from our activities to providing their children with the foundation and skills to take them into their high school years, college, and even their adult life. All of these statements mean the world to us and we take them very seriously, but none are as important as the thoughts and opinions of our students. They are our most important critics, and certainly the ones who will never hold back their true feelings. The old saying, “If you want the truth, talk to a child,” and that is just what we want you to do.
