It originated as the Argenta Colored School, which began operations in 1909. Around 1911 it became the Hickory Street High School. The school developed into a full K-12 school by 1917, and it received its final name in 1928.
In 1958-1959 the Little Rock School District temporarily closed all of its schools, but Scipio Jones was only able to accept a few black students who were locked out of their previous schools; the school district required that any student wishing to transfer to have an address in North Little Rock at the time.
