Petrie Terrace State Boys' school (Number 80) opened in March 1868. Until 1875, the school comprised both boys' and girls' sections. However, in January 1875, the girls were separated from the boys into the newly created Petrie Terrace Girls' and Infants' School.

On 29 June 1953, the Petrie Terrace Boys' State School changed classification to become Petrie Terrace State School, a mixed school comprising boys from the above school and the girls from the former Petrie Terrace Girls' and Infants' School. The school retained the number 80. The new State School was established on the site of the former Petrie Terrace Boys' School.
