Councillors have voted to close Menzieshill High School.
After a meeting at the city chambers which lasted three hours, councillors voted 18 to 14 in favour of the closure.
A protest in the city square before the meeting was not enough to convince decision makers to keep the school open.
Rev Bob Mallinson of Menzieshill Parish Church, a campaigner to keep the school open, said he will continue the fight.
He said: “We won’t stop. This fight will go to Scottish parliament.
“This close fight makes our case stronger. I am happy with tonight’s result. Everyone is determined to fight on. We keep going.”
Education Convenor Stewart Hunter said the closure was the “only feasible option.”
The council hopes the closure could save the administration up to £1.8m by 2019/20.
Pupils who attend Menzieshill High will be transferred to the new Harris Academy building for the start of the 2017/18 school year.
However community campaigners are hopeful the school can be saved and the public response seems to be against the closure.
A recent survey published by opponents of the closure claimed that over 95% of people were against the plans.
