In 1920, a wooden building was constructed as the Atmore Colored School and operated until 1925. In 1926, a new wood and a brick building was erected with assistance from Rosenwald School fund and it was renamed the Escambia County Training School. The current school buildings date from 1959, 1980, and 1981. Located on what was once 8th Avenue, the school offered instruction in academic and industrial education, and students also participated in many extracurricular activities. The girls' basketball team won the State Championship in 1950-1951. The boys' football team went undefeated and were regional champions in 1958-1959. The boys' basketball team were also regional champions in 1965 and 1968. The first principal was Robert L. Bradley and Woodrow McCorvey Sr. was principal when the high school closed in 1970 due to integration. The campus became the Escambia County Middle School for the next 30 years.
