New Westminster School District 40
About the school
The City of New Westminster sits in the middle of the larger communities like Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey and Richmond. The city is fairly small (70,000+ population) and has retained a strong sense of history and local community. In 1987, New Westminster School District was one of the very first public school districts in Canada to begin accepting international students.
Today, the educational programs and services for international students means that you can achieve academic success, greater understanding of the area, make lasting new friendships and go home as a better person.
New Westminster schools provide various levels of English and are designed to improve your communication and other academic needs. Students have a great time doing school activities, clubs and watching local sports teams which will help you to practice your new English language skills and build connections with Canadian culture and Canadian people.
