Building[edit]

Rangeview High School was founded in 1984. The building holds over eighty academic classrooms, along with a library/media center that was built in 2004. The non-academic side consists of a large gymnasium, a small gymnasium, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, an auditorium, a commons area, and a dual weight room.
