All Local & Area Schools

Within the 225 square mile area that is now the Elmore City - Pernell School District, there were originally many rural schools serving several hundred students.  Many of those schools contained grades one through eight, with their students then attending Elmore City High School (or) Pernell High School in grades 9 through 12.  For example, over ninety students originally enrolled in ninth grade at Elmore City during one school year in the late 1930s.  In an effort to preserve the history and heritage of the many rural schools in our district, we have created the following pages.  (Please remember, this is a work in progress.)
