Surrey Board of Education chair Laurie Larson speaks at a ground-breaking event for Grandview Heights Secondary and a new elementary school in the Douglas area of South Surrey.


An official ground-breaking ceremony was held May 17 for two new schools being built in the South Surrey area: Grandview Heights Secondary and a yet-to-be-named Douglas-area elementary. Both are scheduled to open in 2021.

“It’s wonderful to see construction getting underway for Grandview Heights Secondary as this school is so badly needed,” said Laurie Larsen, chair of the Surrey Board of Education. “To have construction also beginning on a new elementary school in the Douglas area just three months after our groundbreaking for the Edgewood Drive-area elementary school is great news for South Surrey and a statement about the progress and priority for school construction in our district by our board and partners.”

The construction contract has been awarded to Yellowridge Construction and work is now underway to build the 1,500-seat Grandview Heights Secondary school. The school address will be 16987 - 25 Ave. The school is to be ready for occupancy September 2021.
