The Damonte Ranch High School (DRHS) opened in the Fall of 2003. Located in the Truckee Meadows, the school is the newest public high school in the Washoe County School District. Located in southeast Reno, the High School is named for the Damonte Ranch development during the rapid expansion of Reno NV. The Damonte Ranch High School DRHS opened as a combined middle school and high school, to help alleviate the overcrowding at Pine Middle School until Depoali Middle School was built. Depoali opened in 2009.
