Who We Are:

École Earl Marriott Secondary is a thriving learning community located in South Surrey, BC.   First opened in 1972, Earl Marriott is a hub for academics, athletics, applied skills and performing arts.  As enrolment grew rapidly in South Surrey, Earl Marriott grew in both size and structure.  For several years, the school was organized around two bell schedules to accommodate expansion.  Currently, the staff and students enjoy a single bell schedule, which facilitates better collaboration and involvement in school cultural activities. 

Today, Earl Marriott Secondary maintains a varied program of rigorous academic, fine and performing arts, technology education, inclusive education, athletic and French Immersion programs. Earl Marriott offers four distinct co-op experiences for its students through an active Careers department. Students at Earl Marriott have the option to participate in a science and humanities co-op, as well as a mechanical and trades exploration co-op.

Earl Marriott enjoys a close connection with the Semiahmoo First Nation.  There is a rich history and tradition of collaboration with the First Nations community.  Students from Earl Marriott participate in an Annual Pow Wow and have travelled to Haida Gwaii for cultural sharing. 

Earl Marriott is one of four French immersion high schools in Surrey and offers academic courses in both French and English. About 25 per cent of students in the school are are working towards completion of a full bilingual diploma.  Earl Marriott is recognized as one of the oldest and largest French Immersion programs in Western Canada.

Earl Marriott students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and schooling experiences.  20% of students primary language spoken at home is not English.  There are 34 home languages other than English represented by our students and their families.

Together with academic rigour, extraordinary choice programs, and a growing international and multicultural student population, Earl Marriott is a vibrant school community with an equally talented and committed teaching and support staff.

The Earl Marriott staff has been working together on the redesigned curriculum with a focus on curricular and core competencies for students, moving to a greater understanding of big ideas, and a vision to connect their work with curriculum to the District Priority Practices of curriculum design: quality assessment, instructional strategies, and social and emotional learning.
