Our History of Education

Before 1901, the only public school for the children of Marked Tree was about one mile out of town in a building called Woodman Hall. In 1901, the first public school within Marked Tree began. A new building was built in 1906, and in 1914, a three-story brick building was built to house the school. In 1914, the high school began; it was remodeled in the summer of 1949. A new elementary school was built in 1937. It later became the middle school but burned down in 1978. A new elementary school was built in 1957. In September 1938, a school started for black children. It had six classrooms. The schools were desegregated in 1966. Today, Marked Tree is home to the Arkansas State University Newport, formerly the Delta Technical Institute.
