Budget 2024 brings more student spaces to Langley

March 22, 2024

Two new Langley school projects are planned to move forward as part of Budget 2024, including a new middle school and an addition.

“As Langley continues to be one of the fastest-growing communities in the province, our government continues to work to ensure students have access to safe, quality schools that are close to home,” said Rachna Singh, Minister of Education and Child Care. “These new projects will help alleviate enrolment pressures and meet the needs of students in Langley’s rapidly growing Willoughby area.”

A new Smith neighbourhood middle school and an addition for R.E. Mountain Secondary are supported to begin planning as part of Budget 2024, which is the largest school capital budget in the Province’s history.

“With more people moving to our community, we need community infrastructure to support that growth,” said Andrew Mercier, MLA for Langley. “The addition at R.E. Mountain Secondary will be welcome news to families in the area and will ensure we can meet the needs of students for years to come.”
