I love Depoali! Teachers are amazing, will do whatever they can to help you understand and are super friendly, the sports programs are great and even the educational clubs like Book cub and Christian Club. Music department is awesome as well. My kids spent all three years of middle school at Depoali. Definitely recommend this school.

Great band/orchestra. Communication by email only, no face to face with teachers unless prescheduled with counselor. Office staff nice. New 'balanced calendar' (short summer, longer breaks.) Advocating for a child is difficult. Great science/math teachers in 7 &8 grades. Taught in teams, students stay with same kids 6-8 grades. PTA meetings have 5-10 people, often run by principal.

This is by far the best school that I have been associated with in Reno. I have 3 children; one in elementary school, one in middle school, and one high school student. The school has caring teachers and a responsive administration, and takes care of discipline issues quickly and efficiently. There is much to offer students in academics, drama, dance, sports and more. Academics are placed at the top; however, because students are not allowed to participate in extra-curricular activities if their grades are failing.

My step-daughter has been at Damonte the last 2 years and I love the school. The population is smaller than other schools, great facilities and the teachers are very easy to get in touch with and are really invested in the success of each student. When ever there has been any issue I've always been able to contact the teacher and have always received a resolution.

I have been here since the 7th grade and it provides many advanced academic courses from high school since the middle school and high school is combined. This school is probably the best school I have ever attended to. I love it here and the teachers and the community is awesome! This a perfect exemple of the school that makes school actually a 'safe place'.

This school has every ammenity possible, but its such a shame that they only care about sports programs and severly ubnder fund music and the arts. The prinicpal doesnt really care too much about problems in the school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
