Pembina Hills Public Schools provides public education to the central Alberta communities of Westlock, Barrhead and Swan Hills and surrounding areas.

The division was created on January 1, 1995 during a wave of school board amalgamations in Alberta, during the Progressive Conservative government of Ralph Klein. Pembina Hills Public Schools was the result of a voluntary merger of Westlock School Division No. 37, the educational component of the County of Barrhead No. 11 and Swan Hills School District No. 5109.

Prior to that union, the Barrhead and Westlock areas had previously been part of a regional school division, Pembina School Division No. 37, which was split in 1947 into the Westlock and Barrhead School Divisions. In 1959, the Municipal District of Barrhead consolidated with the school district to form a county. The first school district in Swan Hills (Oil Hills School District No. 5109) was not formed until 1959.
