Argentine was annexed in 1910 and the school merged with USD 500. by 1918 the enrollment at Argentine reached 200 and a gymnasuim and cafeteria were installed. F. L. Schlagle served as principal from 1919 to 1924 when he became Superintendant of Schools. By 1935 enrollment totalled 1,130 with 29 teachers on staff.
