Hunter S. Thompson transferred to this high school in September 1952.

He was accepted as a member of the Athenaeum Literary Association, a literary group at the school, and contributed a number of articles for them.

He was kicked out of this group in 1955 because of legal problems, and some biographers view this as the beginning of his resolve against social class hypocrisy.
