About Nevada State High School
In 2004, the founding members created NSHS to provide motivated high school students with a choice in their education. This choice would give students the opportunity to attend real college classes with the support of the school, which would help them better transition from high school to college.
NSHS was developed as a small school concept that directly linked expectations to performance. To accomplish this, NSHS has an established structure, college readiness curriculum, monitoring process, and reporting system that keeps parents informed and students engaged in their own learning. The graphic above outlines NSHS’s process for getting students ready for college.
The founding members of Nevada State High School would like to recognize the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and their efforts and research on the early college initiative.
