Clark County schools have something to celebrate. Nevada was just one of four states that improved in both 4th and 8th grade math this year.
According to a study by the U.S. Department of Education, Nevada showed slight improvements this year compared to two years ago and major improvement from 13 years ago. One local school credits a special teaching method used.
At Richard Bryan Elementary School, Mrs. Crew's reputation speaks for itself.
"Mrs. Crew makes it really fun, she has a lot of games that we do in here," said Megan Burns, student.
Crew is known for helping kids master math, so it's the only subject she teaches. Her school ditched the traditional model where one teacher teaches every subject. At Richard Bryan, students rotate between teachers and subjects.
