The Wolves football team made the state playoffs 23 times before the football team was ended in 2007, because of the failure to find a new head coach. In 2003, Gillett School District came under former Governor Mike Huckabee's rural school consolidation act. The bill required all school districts with fewer than 350 students to join with a neighboring school district. As a result, Gillett School District consolidated with the De Witt School District along with the Humphrey School District beginning with the 2004-2005 school year. After that year, the school board closed Humphrey High School leaving Gillett High School the smallest public school in the state of Arkansas. On April 29, 2009 the De Witt school board voted to close Gillett and bus the students to neighboring De Witt High School beginning with the 2009-2010 school year. The doors were closed for good on June 30, 2009.
