Grade Served

Rainbow Dreams Academy serves students in grades K-6. Since our official opening, one grade level has been added each year. We currently serve students from K-6 with full day kindergarten offered at no cost.

Curriculum

Rainbow Dreams Academy (RDA) is an elementary charter school that will use the Clark County School District K-6 Common Core State Standards as it guide for curriculum development. This will ensure the instructional program's alignment to Nevada Academic Content Standards and enable all students to progress by grade level according to the Nevada academic expectancies.

Instruction

Rainbow Dreams Academy will offers a culturally relevant curriculum and instructional program that will integrate english language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, reading, computer technology, fine and performing arts and spanish with an infusion of African American history and multicultural education.

Assessment

Rainbow Dreams Academy understands the importance of academic standards, expectancies, and accountability. We will use data from standardized test scores and other required assessments to both measure and guide our instructional program as well as develop individualized student learning.
