Principal's Message

Welcome to Peterson Academic Center!  The three academic centers within the Clark County School District are designed to help students reflect on mistakes they made while they attended a comprehensive school. At Peterson, we understand that students are here due to those mistakes, and we help them see that those mistakes should not define who they are. We work closely with our students to teach them how to be successful. The Peterson staff provides a rigorous curriculum and meaningful instruction in a positive school atmosphere where students enjoy attending school and feel positive about themselves and their future. My door is always open to you, and I welcome your input. I ask that you work alongside me in taking an active role in the educational experiences of your student.  Checking up on grades, homework, and attendance regularly is a vital piece of the school-to-home partnership. I look forward to a successful and engaging school year. 

Your partner in the education of your child, 

Michael Sharapan
