Murrell Taylor Elementary opened in August 1981. The first principal of the school was Ms. Anne Irby. The original campus was for students in grades Kindergarten through 6th Grade and was part of the Pulaski County Special School District. In 2016-17, Murrell Taylor became part of the newly formed Jacksonville North Pulaski School District. Murrell Taylor currently serves students in grades K-5 and all of the district's K-5 CBI students.
