In 1975 Gilliam Elementary became an annex to the Granite Mountain School, housing the kindergarten, 4-year-old program and Project Aware. In 1979 it became a learning center for those special education students who were so severely disturbed they could not function in a regular school environment. The school was named for Isaac Gilliam Jr., the son of a slave who made a noticeable mark on education in Little Rock.
