High school students in the northwest and southeast portions of the Las Vegas Valley could soon be moving to different schools if boundary changes being discussed by the Clark Count School District are approved.

According to an article written by Joshua Peguero on, the overcrowding in classrooms at schools such as Arbor View High in the northwest part of Las Vegas, and Coronado High in Henderson, has the Attendance Zone Advisory Committee for the Clark County School District proposing boundary changes.

Per Peguero’s article, during Tuesday’s meeting, the committee voted in favor of boundary change proposals to move 200 students from Arbor View High School to Centennial High School, and to move 277 students from Coronado High School to Green Valley High School. The northwest boundary change would also send 20 students from Indian Springs High School to Centennial High.

The northwest and southeast areas of the valley are growing rapidly, and there are no new high schools set to be built in these areas until 2028. According to members of the Attendance Zone Advisory Committee who were quoted in Peguero’s article, there are many complaints regarding overcrowded classrooms in the Clark County School District, but it is the high schools which are the most overcrowded.

For example, there are currently 728 12th grade students enrolled at Arbor View High, and 625 seniors at Centennial High. How many students were in your graduating class? I did not attend high school in the Las Vegas Valley, but my 12th grade class was considerably smaller.

Lydia Ruiz, one of the members of the committee, has a son who attends school at Arbor View, and she is quoted in Peguero’s article as saying that there are already 24 portable classrooms being utilized at that high school, with no more room to grow.

These proposals will be discussed further on Thursday, January 26th at a meeting of the Clark County School District trustees.
