Come on Coyotes.   Let's be vocal about saving Old High.  It's a beautiful building.  There's no reason to destroy what has been and still can be.  1960 Grads, weigh in.

Is the plan to tear it down and then rebuild? This has been happening in FW and North Richland Hills (Richland High), though some of the old buildings were left intact and refurbished on the inside.

The plan was to close WFHS and repurpose Rider to a junior high school. The two schools would be combined into a newly constructed high school, and building a career center on the WFHs grounds. There was talk of moving the school administration from the old Reagan Jr High building to the old WFHS building, but this was only an idea. The whole question is now moot since the bond proposal was overwhelmingly defeated. As usual, there was a lot of opposition, and 2 members of that opposition are now on the Board, but no different ideas have emerged.
