Damonte Ranch High School is the newest public high school in the Washoe County School District, located in southeast Reno. DRHS opened in the Fall of 2003 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.
