In 1905 the right wing of the large brick elementary building was constructed. This was the first brick school house built or attempted in Rockingham County. This building contained 8 rooms, 2 halls, and employed 5 teachers. As the town's size increased, it was necessary to increase the size of the brick school building also.

In 1915, the J.O.U.A.M No. 149, laid the cornerstone for the left wing and center additions to this brick school house. This building was heated by steam and supplied by town water. It had 15 classrooms and a music room. In that same year, The Elkton High School course was introduced. In 1919, the high school was accredited.

In 1938, a new high school was built, (which is now Elkton Middle School) and the current school was converted to house elementary students. In 1972 an addition was added to the school, replacing the older elementary school building. The school was further enlarged in 1995 with the addition of a new gym-auditorium and new kindergarten and third grade wings.
