Elliott School District sponsored the Jobe School for two years-1929-30 and 1930-31. This was the equivalent of the first 2 years of high school. Students from surrounding districts also attended. Elliott was the only rural school in this area to offer high school courses. Several of the 1931 graduates completed their high school education at Tuscumbia. Iberia did not have a high school at this time.
