IMG_0791.JPGSurrey Schools in Metropolitan Vancouver

Located on Canada's spectacular west coast, the Surrey School District is located just 40 minutes southeast of the city of Vancouver and 2 hours north of Seattle, Washington, USA. Surrey provides educational services to students residing in one of Canada's fastest growing cities, the city of Surrey, and the beautiful ocean-side community of White Rock. 

The Surrey School District is the largest public school district in British Columbia, Canada and the ideal place for international students to achieve their academic goals while experiencing a true Canadian lifestyle. International students are invited to study with Canadian students in all 100+ elementary and 21 secondary schools, provided there is space. International students can enroll twice each school year (September and February) and are integrated into regular classes with Canadian students while receiving ESL (English as a Second Language) instruction as necessary. There are a limited number of international students (5%) enrolled in each school so that each student receives the support and services necessary to ensure their educational success. Currently, over 750 international students are studying amongst 75,000+ domestic students.
