Why Study in Surrey

  • Being the largest school district in British Columbia allows us to offer many different program offerings - International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), athletics, arts, music, robotics, etc. With 21 secondary and over 100 elementary schools, Surrey is considered a leader in education in BC.
