Description

Robert McQueen High School is a public secondary school in Reno, Nevada, USA. It is part of the Washoe County School District.HistoryThe school was named for Dr. Robert McQueen, emeritus professor of Psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno. During his tenure from 1955–1991, Dr. McQueen headed UNR's scholarship program, served as department chair and dean, and was appointed to Nevada's first psychological board of examiners. Dr. McQueen served on the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees from 1969–1990, during which the district built several new schools, including Reed and McQueen. He also negotiated the purchase of McQueen's 60acre site from the Bureau of Land Management for just one dollar.When the school opened in 1982, adjoining Seventh Street and Robb Drive were only dirt roads extended out to allow access to the school. Some remarked the school was "in the middle of nowhere" as it was more than a mile from other buildings. Since then, the construction of numerous subdevelopments has resulted in overcrowding problems. The building was designed for an enrollment of 1,600; in 2009/10 more than 1,800 were enrolled. In order to mitigate overcrowding concerns and comply with local fire regulations, several modular classrooms have been added to the campus.In 2010, Newsweek listed McQueen as the 740th best school in the United States using the ratio of number of AP exams taken to graduating students as its criterion.

This is a craft fair where one finds crafts made by those who sell them. It is a nice change. Not the usual stuff imported from China
