McKinlay State School was opened on 5 July 1897 by the first head teacher, Francis Wallace. A ten acre reserve, including the land on which the school was built, was officially proclaimed in the Government Gazette on 18 March 1899.

An application for a new school was made in 1925 and a further application for a new school building was made in 1938. The application was approved on 10 January 1938 and the new school was built in January 1939.

McKinlay State School was closed in mid 1953 because of low attendance as the average attendance in February 1953 had fallen to 3.2. The school was reopened in January 1957.
