Rainshadow: Community Charter High School


Founded in 2003 by Dr. Stephen Tchudi and Dr. Stephen Lafer, members of the faculty of the University of Nevada. The mission of Rainshadow is to show students the power of the knowledge and skills they acquire, and how they can apply them in real world situations to accomplish their goals.

Rainshadow gives a sense of belonging to students so they can participate with enthusiasm and get involved in the community. The campus counts with solar power, a commercial kitchen and the potential to have art shows and performances giving the students the opening to develop skills such as culinary, theater, farming and art. With the student body rising and even having a waiting list, Rainshadow also has opportunities to have recreational sports.

The school is focused on participating with the local community, and has collaborated with the Reno Little Theater, the Holland Project, and the Great Basin Institute among many others over the years.
