Redlynch State School has a proud history of academic success, sporting prowess, community support and parent involvement. The school was first opened on the original site in 1932 on Intake Road.

It opened with an enrolment of eighty students after five years of lobbying by the local rural community. A strong community link has been a recurrent feature of the school community. It was again evident when the planning and building of the new school was undertaken in 1994.

The new site, once a sugar cane farm, futher along Intake Road, opened its doors with an enrolment of one hundred and eighty students and has continued to experience considerable growth. The current enrolment is over seven hundred students.
