Emerald Primary School has been educating the children of the town and district since 1879. The school was relocated to its current site within the township of Emerald 1901 and is the largest primary school in the area.

The school motto is “On Track for Success”, which is supported by the school logo of Puffing Billy – an acknowledgment of the history of the school and local area and links to the community.
