McDonogh 35 High School, New Orleans


Roneagle mascot

African American residents of New Orleans entered 1917 with new aspirations. John McDonogh, a late 19th century  entrepreneur, provided a grant to make this high school a reality. McDonogh 35 became the first public high school in New Orleans.  Often referred to as “35” , McDonogh has been a pillar of hope, achievement and excellence in New Orleans and its surrounding area since its inception. The eagle seen by others is the revered  Roneagle  of McDonogh 35. They are proud of their mascot and its endurance is a story in itself. Three year books from the Roneagles are available from the mid to late 1960s.
