I've heard that for leg or lower body exercises it is better to do high reps but i dont know how high. What rep range is the best to build some mass and muscle for the squat exercise?? 12-15, 15-20, 20-25 or 25+ reps?

But if your asking me, then the key is variety.
Personally I switch week by week, meaning one week i'll do lower reps and heavier weight and the other week i'll do lighter weights more reps and more volume. Be consistent and try different things eventually you will find what works best for you.

in my opinion there really isnt a set rep range for any individual because i believe everyone should experiment with all types of various rep ranges. with all my muscles not just legs i will use low reps 8-12 and moderate reps 12-15 and sometimes even high reps 15-20. i always switch things up to keep the muscle guessing at all times to it doesnt settle for just one type of stimuli. since i've been doing this i've noticed a huge difference in my actual definition and separation. i've also incorporated some of ERIC BROSERS P/RR/S routines as well. i've tailored them to me obviously and it's worked very well. so experiment and see what works for you.NGA Natural bodybuilder

I think if you alternate each week low(3-5) and high rep workouts(8-12) you'll be fine.
My quads responded very well to low rep training and then got extra stimulation from some higher rep workouts.
I do both, not just to rip the benefits of both but also give my body some rest from the heavy weights so I can go again.
I've noticed it on deads also, changing the rep range for a period of time to higher reps my body responded very well.
