The high rating of this school makes me question if this site is valid or not. To begin, there is no parent involvement, the students are rude and disrespectful, and the school even allows a place where kids can go skip class and smoke if they want. Also, the "common core" program is completely detrimental to a student's education experience, with it's ridiculous standards. Furthermore, the teachers don't care about the students at all, and only want to make themselves look good for a decent pay check. Now, let's delve down into the core "values" of the school. Respect? The kids have no respect for anyone, not even themselves. Honor? Little to nonexistent. Strength? Academically and in sports, there isn't any. Don't waste your time considering this school, it's only a mediocre at best public school.

This is an amazing school. The teachers and support staff do a wonderful job of being involved in the students lives. Sure, there are some issues with certain kids, just like in every school. People seem to believe that the school is where kids might pick up bad habits, but that starts in the home. At Reno High, it has always been the cool thing to be smart. There is enormous competition between the AP students to see who can do better. No one should ever feel left out, Reno High celebrates everything from Academics, Art, Theater, Band, Orchestra, Sports, ROTC, and any and all in between. It is a family, all Huskies belong to it.

The fact that Reno High has a high rating on Great Schools makes me question the validity of the site. RHS used to be a good school, unfortunately it is mediocre at best. The bar has been dropped very low - raising it's test scores, athletics run the school and fights/incidents are not reported much less dealt with on a regular basis if at all.

Reno High is not a school I am zoned too. I was originally going to go to Hug High (really bad school) but instantly got a variance to this school. I like the challenging courses and the education we gain. Compared to other high school honor English classes, Reno Highs is the best and most challenging. Very good school which has 7 periods, giving us an extra period for more elective classes. This school is just overall perfect for me and I would NOT go to any other school. McQueen? There's so many kids there and the school is so small that everyone has to share a locker. Glen would be the second choice for me.

Respect? The students have none for themselves. Honor? Honor what, the corrupt social hierarchy? Strength? There is nothing strong in academics or athletics here. I have gone to Reno High School for 3 years and I want nothing more than to transfer. It is not because I don't have friends or have bad grades. I'm an AP student who would generally be considered popular, but I hate the culture of the school. It is extremely cliquey and watching other kids be ostracized 24/7 isnt right. If you dont have money, play a popular sport, or have the right friends you are not noticed. Those who are popular are highely involved in partying aka drugs and underage drinking. Not to mention the nasty rumors that are constantly spreading and the disrespect for the school. Kids show up drunk and high all the time, girls constantly break dress code, and some teachers (not the AP ones) are consistently unprepared and don't care about the school. Do not send your child here. If they fit in they will get involved in partying and if they dont theyre going to have a horrible experience anyways. Reno Huskies are a pack and pack mentality here goes too far.

A few exceptional teachers. Some not so much. I know several extremely bright kids who are leaving. So in the next few years check scores reno high's are sure to go down and if it is between manogue, sage ridge or Wooster IB And academics are important to you, iI encourage you to go to any of those over Reno High. Socially Reno High is extremely cliquey and smart kids have to act like they are not to fit in. It is also true that boys and girls are extremely promiscuous from several stories I've heard. I've seen a lot of examples of cliquey groups purposefully ignoring an individual or group. A lot of unhappy kids if they aren't in the major popular group. Apparently kids at Reno High aren't aware that this is bullying.

Parents don't seem to be involved in anything. Students are always late or high and the girls that go there are very promiscuous. I am definitely taking my child out of this school and taking him to a better one.

As the spouse of a Reno High School Teacher I must say that I am impressed with the culture of the school. When something does not go as planned, it is noted and corrected immediately. This is Reno High and those things don't happen on this campus. Academics are excellent, Administration and Staff are professional and efficient.

We picked this high school for the music program it offers. My son is a freshman and has become very involved in various activities. The teachers keep up to date through Edline and even personal calls when events come up and couldn't have been better at Parent's night. I'm so impressed with this school! Reno High Rocks!

The only concern I have is that this is geared to high students, and there are many, in Honors and AP courses. When reg classes are taken, they don't match the quality that the reg classes do. Advanced will naturally be advanced, but that doesn't mean the reg curric cannot be of high quality.
