A school was established at the Doomadgee Mission in 1933. The school was called Doomadgee Mission School and after 1970 Doomadgee Community School.

In 1975 the Education Department took over control Doomadgee Community School from the Department of Aboriginal and Island Affairs and it became Doomadgee State School.
A Preschool Centre attached to the State School opened on 28 January 1975. Doomadgee State School also includes a Secondary Department.
