The Tuscarora Valley Elementary School was opened in 1958 for elementary students from the Borough of Port Royal as well as the neighboring townships of Turbett and Spruce Hill. It replaced the Port Royal Elementary School as well as the one room schools from the surrounding townships.

The building sits on 9.5 acres of land and the building occupies 12,500 square feet of space.

The school building was closed at the end of the Fall Semester in 2018 when the school district went through further consolidation. When students came back from winter break, they went to new classrooms at Juniata Elementary School in Mifflintown.

At the school's closing a total of 108 students were transferred to the consolidated school, including 20 kindergarteners, 14 first graders, 21 second graders, 17 third graders, 16 fourth graders and 16 fifth graders.

During the February 21, 2019 meeting of the Juniata County School Board, the Board approved the sale of the Tuscarora Valley Elementary School in Port Royal to the highest bidder, the Juniata County Agricultural Society for the sum of $426,150. (The Agricultural Society owns the adjoining land that encompasses the Juniata County Fair Grounds.)
