Verdi, NV is served by the Washoe County School District. From what I've been able to find online, there is only one elementary school in Verdi, which is Verdi Elementary School, and it appears to be a very good school academically. The junior high and high schools in the area are the B D Billinghurst Middle School and the Robert Mc Queen High School. Again, both are highly ranked schools. There is a magnet high school in the area, TMCC Magnet High School, where the students do earn college credit during their time there. But it's pretty far away from Verdi.

Yes there are some great schools. Verdi is a nice area however Roy Gomm elementary school is nicer. The charter schools are nowhere near Verdi. Try checking out the Davidson Academy, Sage Ridge, and TMCC high school.Source(s): I went to TMCC high school, a magnet school that prepared me for university and also allowed me to take upwards of 40 free college credits before I received my high school diploma.
