A local committee in Redmond is looking over possible names for the new high school. Committee member Toni Duff says 125 name possibilities came in.  They'll take their top three suggestions and present those to the School Board next week on February 9th. Here is one example along with the reason behind the name:

"One of which was Desert Sky High School. That name came in because; this name captures one of the most spectacular advantages of living in Central Oregon, our wide open desert sky.  It’s not only beautiful, it represents endless possibilities.”  Other names submitted were Volcano High School, Nine Peaks, Constitution High School, East Cascades and Red Rock High School. The 276,000 square foot school will be done by March of 2012. Students will move in next fall.
