One of the best in the district with a helpful staff, good funding and care for students! I always felt like I had a good amount of activitiest to choose from and a lot of resources to access if I needed them. They have trouble listening to feedback from students, especially regarding their insane school year schedule that takes a toll on both teachers and students. However, my experience there was overall positive and look back on it fondly!

Reno High School is a great public school because it has so many different opportunities for everyone. There's Advanced Placement classes to allow students to further their college education while still being in high school which is a great opportunity to save money and time in college. Reno High School also offers wonderful teachers who are funny and help with colleges, classes, and they are people to go to for help. The community at Reno High is also great because there are assemblies that really bring students together as well giving the students an opportunity to be together as a whole school.
Reno High School has been an amazing environment for me to learn who I am and grow as a human being. I entered my freshman year as a scared little girl with a tendency to be a follower and a sheep. I was quiet and followed the most basic trends just to float under the radar. I wore the Miss Me jeans, the Ugg boots, and the t-shirts knotted in the back and fried my hair with a straightener every morning. By the end of my freshman year that girl was transformed into a strong, outspoken, opinionated young woman with more of a sense of self than I ever imagined having, and I only continued to improve from there. As I write this in my last semester of high school, I reflect back on all the growth I have achieved since that first day entering the yellow-tiled halls of Reno High School and I realize that the amazing teachers and the incredible students that walk those same halls have helped shape me into who I am today.
