Student Wellness.

It is important to the Clark County School District, that our students thrive in an environment that allows them to make healthy food choices and provides them with opportunities to be physically active. At Nevada Learning Academy, we endeavor to make sure that our students are aware of the benefits that eating healthy, and getting plenty of exercise can have!

Nevada 2-1-1, a program of the Financial Guidance Center, is committed to helping Nevada citizens connect with the services they need.
