Canby's elementary schools are Carus, Eccles, Knight, Lee, and Trost; Baker Prairie serves students in grades 7-8, and Canby High serves students in grades 9-12. Its sole K-8 school, Ninety-One School, was formed from a merger of five rural schools in 1947. After heated debate over the name for the new school, in March 1950, it was named the "Ninety-One Joint School" after what was then School District 91.[10] A month later, the word "Joint" was dropped from the name.[10]
