Akranes has two primary schools in operation, named Brekkubæjarskóli and Grundaskóli, with classes that encompass grades 1. – 10. These schools operate in accordance with laws and regulations that apply to primary schools and the education policy of Akranes, in addition to the activities they conduct in line with their respective emphasis and policy.

Akranes is divided into two areas, one for Brekkubæjarskóli and the other for Grundaskóli. The boundary between these two areas runs along the roads Þjóðbraut and Faxabraut.

The Department of education and leisure activities enrols students that are beginning their primary school education, and parents have an opportunity to submit requests for a specific school after enrolment has taken place.  Parents of students who begin studies in other grades enrol their children with the secretarial staff of the primary schools in accordance with the school district to which they belong.
