The Rock Mills School was built in the 1920s at a cost of $1500.00 adjacent to the Rock Mills Missionary Baptist Church.  Funds to construct the school were contributed as follows:

Whites: $500.00
Public: $500.00
Rosenwald School Fund: $500.00

Negroes contributed labor and other non-monetary assets to the building of the school.

The school was a 2-Teacher school, initially.  It was enlarged later and designated as a junior high school in the 1950s.

Its principals included Professor James A. Riley, Mrs. Mayme Shealey, and Mr. John E. Hendricks.
