Edmonton Public Schools was established in 1885 by the Northwest Territories Council. At the time, it was called Edmonton Protestant Public School District #7. On February 26, 1907, it was announced that the name would change to Edmonton School District No. 7 of the North-West Territories. The common-use name "Edmonton Public Schools" was first used in the 1955 Annual Report. In August 2019, the name was changed from Edmonton School District No. 7 to Edmonton School Division.
