Dondero High School, with an enrollment of half the middle school enrollment despite the extra grade. But, due to the declining enrollment, the project, casually named "Old Skool", assigned Kimball High Schoolto become the new "ROHS", and Dondero was later assigned to become a middle school.
The school gymnasium was set on fire during a suspected
Arsonon October 31, 2006. The gymnasium was not ready for use until late October, in which students had to use outdoor facilities for Physical Education. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dondero_High_School]
