Del Sol High School is a nine-month public high school in unincorporated Clark County, Nevada, United States that is part of the Clark County School District. Del Sol was one of three schools (including Canyon Springs and Spring Valley) to open in Fall 2004. Del Sol has a large population of non-English speaking students, which led the school to establish the Newcomer Academy, a program designed to help students become proficient in English. Del Sol also created the Freshman Fire-Up program to mentor students with poor attendance and grade deficiencies.[2]
