Manning Training School has origins in the early 20th century with the Slater Fund helped finance Clarendon County Training School. This facility provided both education for black students and advanced training for African American teachers who taught in the rural South. Schools that performed this teacher-training function were known as “Training Schools.” The first school burned in the 1920s.

A new school was built in 1927-28 and was financed in part by the Rosenwald Fund. This Rosenwald School, the first Manning Training School, burned in 1941. It was replaced by temporary buildings until a new school was built in 1953 with funds from S.C.’s school equalization program. Mr. William M. Parker served as principal of Manning Training School from 1942 until it was consolidated with Manning H.S. in 1970.
