Our Mission

Our mission statement reflects our understanding of the diverse needs of our learners, as well as our belief that fostering well-prepared and socially responsible members of our community is our most important goal.

Community Culture

Surrey Schools’ students represent a mosaic of culture, with 42% coming from a household in which a language other than English is spoken. We strive to recognize and celebrate the many cultures that make up this vibrant school district in our buildings and programs, and our workforce reflects our community’s cultural diversity.
