Construction could start as early as next year on a new a school in Surrey, B.C.
It will be built in the Clayton North area of the community.

The new Clayton North facility, once constructed, will accommodate students in grades 8-12. Construction of the new school could start as early as next year, with possible completion in September 2016.
