In 1884 there were approximately 150 school age children living at Newtown, Maryborough (now Maryborough West). Most were attending the Maryborough Central State School, which was one and a quarter miles distant.

On 9 September 1884, a public meeting was held at Newtown to discuss the establishment of a school in the area. Maryborough West State School (No. 485) was opened on 19 July 1886 and the enrolment for the September quarter was 314 pupils. The staff consisted of Head Teacher, George Still, and three teachers. Because there was already a Newtown School, at Ipswich, the new school was given the name Maryborough West.
