About Nevada School of Inquiry
The Las Vegas valley has one more option to add for middle school students this year. Opening its doors for the 2022-23 school year is the Nevada School of Inquiry (NVSI). NVSI is a nonprofit, private middle school focused on creating the next generation of well-rounded, confident, problem solvers through a unique educational model.
NVSI provides local middle school students not just an education, but an experience. Students learn by being challenged with problems where they must provide evidence to their claims. The learning experience unfolds through units of instruction that end each month with an authentic learning experience, outside of the school, bringing their learning into the real world.
Directors Christina and Eric Threeton are a local educator couple that have made the bold decision to open the school. Part of a growing microschool movement, there are only a total of 30 students accepted into the school each year. By keeping the size smaller than traditional middle schools, NVSI can truly individualize learning while creating lasting relationships with students and families.
Unlike many other tuition-based schooling options, the school charges a flat rate that includes all school supplies, daytrips, testing, and application. As a registered school for the Nevada Educational Choice Program, qualifying families can access funds to help cover tuition. NVSI consistently seeks grant opportunities, as well as community partners interested in donating in the greatest gift, education. It is a goal of the school to be able to provide attainable, high-quality education to a diverse range of Las Vegas families.
The Nevada School of Inquiry is currently enrolling for the 22-23 school year and is located at 7375 S. Pecos Rd #104 Las Vegas, NV 89120. The school year runs August 10th through May 24th.
