As the wave of baby-boomers swept through Kettering, OH, Fairmont High School was overflowing its capacity. In 1963, Fairmont East High School was opened and Fairmont High School became Fairmont West High School. For 20 years, there was a good-natured cross-town rivalry between the Fairmont East Falcons and the Fairmont West Dragons. By 1983, the tidal wave was subsiding and the schools were rejoined on the West campus as the Kettering Fairmont Firebirds. When the high school moved out, the Fairmont East High School buildings became Kettering Junior High School and is now called Kettering Middle School. (Interesting note: The Junior/Middle school was originally the Falcons, that was changed to the Wildcats, then, in 2005, they changed again to the Firebirds.)
