About New Westminster Schools

New Westminster is located in the center of Metro Vancouver between the larger communities of Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey, and Richmond. Despite its location, the city is relatively small and has retained a strong sense of history and community. The total population is approximately 70,000 and is expected to grow to 84,000 by 2021. District schools are, in general, fully subscribed, and a modest increase in student enrollment is expected over the next few years.

The student population is reflective of the city’s population, with a full range of social and cultural backgrounds forming a diverse presence in our schools.

Our learners:
