Toone School can be traced to community owned/operated schools with records before the 1920’s. In 1928, the property for the present school was deeded to the county board of education, who took on the management of the school at that time. At that time there was segregation in the school system, and Toone North Side was an African American school located in a separate facility. Toone School was originally a high school, but was changed to a 1-8 school in the early 1960’s. In 1966, Silerton School was closed, and the students were absorbed into the population of Toone Elementary School. Around 1968, a kindergarten class would be added, and Toone North Side was merged with Toone School to form the present Toone Elementary School. The structure present in 1928 was razed in the late 1930’s and replaced by a two story wooden structure. The current building was built in 1950, with additions made in 1968, 1979, and 1998 as the needs increased with changing populations and changing class size limits.
