Notes
  
The Surrey School District offers several "Programs of Choice" that provide unique settings for students.
  
Each school day, the Surrey School Meal Programs strive to feed as many children as possible a nutritious meal. Without this food, these students might otherwise go hungry. Research has clearly shown children who have enough food to eat learn better and are healthier.
  
The Aboriginal Department supports school initiatives that focus on Aboriginal culture.  The goal of this support is to increase Aboriginal content into the curriculum in a way that benefits all students.
  
The Surrey School District is committed to providing safe and caring environments in which all learners can achieve academic excellence, personal growth and responsible citizenship.
