With hundreds of new students projected to enter our schools every year, Surrey Schools is the largest and fastest-growing public school district in the province. The district has been working hard to accommodate this rapid growth through the ongoing construction of new schools, additions and building upgrades. Construction has remained steady through the pandemic.

The district currently has nine projects under construction, including five new schools and four school expansions. The construction projects, with their target openings, include:
