The building served grades K-12 and at the time of its closing was one of only 2 k-12 facilities left in the state.
In the early 1950s the school recieved a major addition including a gymnasium and lunchroom.
The playground equipment remains on site and appears to be regularly used, probably by neighborhood children.
The schools closing and consolidation was met with resistance of locals in the area worried about longer bus rides for children across curvy winding mountain roads. Finally on August 10, 2010, Grayson Highlands School opened, leaving Mt Rogers Combined School closed and a part of Grayson County’s past.
