York Road High School was completed in 1956, the last all-black school constructed. The school was never actually located on York Road, but it was given this name so that people could find it. It began as a junior high, but added grades until it became a senior high in 1959. In 1969, York Road High School became Robert F. Kennedy Jr. High as part of the city’s integration plan. In 1968, Kennedy Junior High moved to a new campus and the old York Road School building became part of the Maria G. Davis Middle School complex.
