The original school administration office and wings opened in 1953, with a third wing and multi-purpose building added at a later point. The school is several miles from the main entrance of Louisiana State Penitentiary (LSP), and many of its students lived on the LSP grounds. On May 18, 2011, due to budget cuts, the parish school board voted to close Tunica Elementary.
