GRANDVIEW HEIGHTS SECONDARY TRANSITION

We are pleased to announce that construction at Grandview Heights Secondary (16987 25th Ave) is well under way and the school will be ready to welcome Grade 8-11 students in September 2021.

Current grade 8-10 Semiahmoo students who reside in the Grandview Heights Secondary catchment and current grade 8-10 students who attended Sunnyside Elementary have automatically been enrolled at Grandview Heights for September 2021. A letter from the District has been sent to those families who are impacted by this transition.

In the letter, it is noted that there are 2 exceptions where these students may remain at Semiahmoo:

     1) Students who are accepted in the IB program. (Note - if at any point the student withdraws from IB, they will return to Grandview Heights to continue their studies.

     2) Students who have a sibling that will be in their grade 12 year at Semiahmoo in September 2021 may remain at Semiahmoo with their older sibling as per District policy

If your child(ren) fit in to one of these categories and would like to remain at Semiahmoo, please follow the instructions outlined in the letter. 

All other families that live in the Grandview Heights catchment but would like to remain at Semiahmoo can make a request by regular school District Out-of-Catchment policy process:

  1. Print off and fill out the following District Out-of-Catchment form:                                                                           OUT OF CATCHMENT FORM GRANDVIEW CATCHMENT.pdf
  2. Along with the out-of-catchment form, families can include a brief letter outlining the reason for their request. (As Semiahmoo is significantly overcrowded, very few out-of-catchment requests will be able to be accommodated and applications will likely be considered in unique circumstances only, based on individual student needs). 
  3. Scan and send the out-of-catchment documents to semiahmoo@surreyschools.ca between January 11th and January 29th.

(All applications will be date stamped and processed according to District policy #9300 for cross-boundary requests).
