1985 School Fire
In 1985, Mount Hope High School was burned down, forcing students to watch the school burn down helplessly; most of the students were woken up from their sleep to watch their school burn down in the dark of midnight. Classes were temporarily held in the current Mount Hope School, which is deteriorating due to the nearby Hatton School System and Tharptown School Systems; the high school was never reconstructed.
