It was built in the 1970s and was the ninth high school to open in the area.HistoryBonanza opened in 1976, and is built in the same configuration as Eldorado High School, Basic High School and Vo-Tech high schools. Since it opened its doors in 1976 Bonanza has always been a large school with anywhere from 2000-3000+ students. However with the city of Las Vegas growing faster than before, bigger high schools were constructed to help resolve the over-crowding of schools.
