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 available. International students may enrol twice each school year (September and January/February) and are integrated into regular classes with Canadian students while receiving ELL/ESL (English as a Second Language) instruction as necessary. There are a limited number of international students (less than 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 74,000+ domestic students.
