History of Renner
Renner is named after the old Renner community, whose school was established in the year 1892 and later moved to Dallas' Old City Park.
Renner Middle School opened in 1990 in the former Shepton High School building. In the fall of 1988, it re-opened in a new building off Parker Road; the Shepton building was remodeled and converted back into a high school.
