There is a reason families are willing to move to Reno for their kids to attend this school. The teachers are amazing! The administration cares more for the kids than any other school we've known.

The school could definitely stand to be more diverse in a lot of ways; for example, it could improve its ethnic diversity and admit more students from low-income backgrounds. It's also quite small, and this can feel very insular at times. However, the teachers are some of the most caring human beings I have ever met, and the school continues to feel like a home even after you graduate. I think anyone who goes here will receive an excellent education that will take them far in life, but they would also do well to remember that there's a far bigger world out there beyond its walls (and to interact with it more). Oh, and many of the students here are middle schoolers or early high schoolers--sometimes it can feel like older students are glossed over a little bit when it comes to creating special events or opportunities for them. Overall, though, this school is excellent, and I think all of these problems are definitely solvable.
I love how this school pushes it's students towards their academic potential, while still leaving room for students to explore areas of other interests, like sports, clubs, etc. The community is wonderful and the teacher's are all experts and always there to assist you when you need it.
