Overall, I have found Reno High to be a fantastic experience! The open campus is quite nice, and there are many activities available to students. It seems to me that there is something for everyone! There are clubs of all different natures, as well as sports and other activities relating to the arts and technology. My academic experience has also been great. The staff truly cares for their students and apart from 1 unhelpful teacher, all of my teachers have helped me to effectively understand the subject matter that I am learning. Most of the student body is friendly, though there are some rude kids (but all schools have them). Personally, I haven't had any problems with my peers and I feel relatively safe at school. Though our facility might not be the prettiest with its yellow-tiled walls, there are decent classrooms and quality sports facilities offered here. In all, I've had no major issues here and am grateful that I go to a school with good academics and spirited students.

Reno High School is a very rewarding experience. They have a really nice and accepting atmosphere, with many areas to hang out with friends, and many classroom to feel at home in. The teachers range from either terrible to amazing, there are few that are in between, but most are amazing and are quick to adapt to different teaching styles so that each student learns at their own pace. The Red House Project is a wonderful program to be apart of, and I took most of the classes within that program just to explore what I liked and what I didn't, and the teachers were okay with that! They wanted you to try something new, and were very supportive. The Animation Room was one of the most active yet comfortable environments for someone like myself, and if you're going to Reno to enter this program I highly recommend it. It was one of the best experiences of my life, even with it's ups and downs.
Reno High is proud of it's traditions and it's culture surrounding honor. The student body is god-humored generally well behaved because of the serious attitude toward work that the staff has. The administration was qualified and dedicated, helpful and responsive, which is what I found to be the most appealing about my experiences when I was in need of information or actions regarding absences or scheduling. The counselors had a great many students to keep track of, so the relationship with my counselors was not overly familiar and the interactions were always brief but efficient. Overall, I found Reno High School to be a good fit for what my academic goals were.
