Subject: Jonesboro Schools
The Jonesboro School
was built in 1974 and opened in 1975. We have checked the records at the school and other places [and have found that] there were two other schools before this one.

The original school was built in 1869 and served until 1928. The 1928 school served the community untill 1975 when the current one opened. The former school is now the current Methodist Church. Thank You - Rhonda Reid Technology Director Jonesboro ISD, February 11, 2004
