Upper Brookfield State School opened in 1916. It was a low-set ‘open air’ structure. Canvas blinds were replaced with sash windows in 1923 and in 1933 a high-set building for sixty pupils replaced the original. That year the Department of Public Instruction provided a teacher’s residence, now used for Out of School Hours Care. The highest enrolment was 91 pupils in 1956. The present enrolment of about forty students enjoy the multi-age classes and the rural environment.
