About Our School

Historical Perspective


Dunbar-Ramer School, formerly known as Dunbar High School and Ramer High School, dates back to 1874 when it was opened in the Weeping Mary Methodist Church located in the Ramer community. The school was located in the Mt. Dillard Baptist Church from 1877 until 1897. In 1897, the first school building was built. This building burned in 1902, and classes had to resume in the Mt. Gillard Baptist Church. The church remained at that location until 1936, when a building was built at its present location as an elementary school. In 1947, the school became a high school and remained a high school until 1970. In the 1970's the high school moved miles away from the elementary school giving the Ramer community two public schools, Montgomery County High and Dunbar Elementary. In 2004, the Montgomery Public School System decided to close the Ramer community public schools for various reasons. After careful deliberation, the system chose to close only one of the schools. After many meetings to keep at least one school open, the high school remained open because it was in better condition. Having only one school opened limited the enrollment for Ramer students. As a result, the ninth through twelfth grades were bused to Montgomery area high schools. Today, the school serves kindergarten through eighth grades. After deciding to keep the high school open in the community, the Montgomery Public School board had to rename the school, which was neither an elementary nor a high school. The Ramer community school was named Dunbar-Ramer School.
