Demolition work has started to bring down buildings on the site of the former Menzieshill High.
The city’s councillors voted to close the school after the roll fell below 500.
Despite widespread opposition from local community and parent groups, Menzieshill shut its doors for the final time at the end of the last school year.
Pupils were moved to the newly refurbished Harris Academy, taking up their places at the start of the current school year last August.
A former Menzieshill High pupil set up a social media page to celebrate its history and offer people the chance to share memories of their time at the school.
The Facebook page was the idea of TV cameraman and director Mike Hughes, who wanted to document the school’s closure.
He also plans to release a film showing the final days of the school, featuring footage of final tours and interviews with former staff and pupils.
After the demolition machinery had rolled in, people took to the Facebook page to say their farewells.
One message read: “So sad to see the heart of our community pulled down. I worked there for 17 years.
“Menzieshill High School was one of the first Dundee schools to open their doors to the integration of pupils with disabilities and was an enormous success.”
Others took to the page to say how sad they were to finally see the building go and that a school is still much needed in the area.
Opened in 1971, Menzieshill High was one of Dundee’s first comprehensive schools.
The Yarrow Terrace building educated more than 90,000 pupils during its 45-year history.
Bathgate demolition company Dem Master Demolition Ltd was awarded the contract last year, successfully tendering £547,431 to carry out the work.
