Isa Mines State School, no. 843, opened on 3 May 1932. The school included a secondary department from 2 February 1937 to 1952. In the early 1970s the children were moved to a new facility that was named Happy Valley State School. The school number remained the same, 843. For some time both schools were operating until facilities were completed at Happy Valley.
