COLLEYVILLE -- Colleyville Heritage High School is finally admitting their Donald Trump wall banner at last week's pep rally was a mistake.

The sign referencing Trump's proposed border wall set off a firestorm, with many people seeing it as racist.

The sign read "Paid for by Trinity," a reference to Euless' Trinity High School, one of the most ethnically diverse public high schools in Texas.

Trump says his wall will curb illegal immigration and be paid for by Mexico.

The sign went along with Colleyville Heritage's pep rally theme 'Make Colleyville Great Again.

The school says they approved the theme, but not the sign.

CHHS issued this apology:

"The actions of last week do not demonstrate who we are. We are not ignorant to the dialogue taking place across the nation and that is not how we want our school to be viewed. At Colleyville Heritage, we celebrate and take pride in our own diversity and we appreciate the diversity at Trinity."
