Construction underway on new elementary school in Langley

May 25, 2024

Students and families are one step closer to having a new elementary school with construction starting in the Township of Langley’s Willoughby Heights area.

“Communities flourish when students have access to safe, quality learning environments close to home,” said Rachna Singh, Minister of Education and Child Care. “I am thrilled that this new state-of-the-art school will soon help meet the needs of families in what is one of the fastest-growing communities in the province. As more people are moving to B.C., our government is continuing to build, expand and upgrade schools so that all students have the chance to reach their full academic potential.”

The new Northeast Latimer Elementary school will have space for 555 students from kindergarten to Grade five. With more than $51.8 million from the Province, the school is expected to be ready for students in fall 2025.

“I am thrilled to see the construction of this new elementary school starting, as it will provide much-needed spaces for students in one of the fastest-growing school districts in British Columbia,” said Megan Dykeman, MLA for Langley East. “We’re proud of our partnership with the Langley School District and the Township of Langley, and our shared commitment to providing students with inclusive and engaging learning environments that are close to home.”
