Clayton Heights


Cloverdale residents will finally get a new high school in 2016. A decision by the provincial government that is long overdue. From the time both of my girls started high school, with one attending Clayton Heights Secondary and the other attending Lord Tweedsmuir they have been extremely over crowded. So much so that when applying to attend from out of the school boundary they try and trade off with each other to help each other out. Clayton will trade one student for another from Tweedsmuir.

This year my eldest attends Clayton Heights and she has mentioned it's been the worst yet for overcrowding with barely enough room to walk through the halls between classes because the halls are jam packed with students. 

The government also plans on purchasing land for another needed elementary school in the Clayton area as well as another elementary school and long overdue highschool in South Surrey.
