Picking your child's school is fundamental in their development. I personally went to Elgin Park Secondary School and loved every second of it, but Canada is known for having quality schools. Here are the Catchments for Burnaby, Delta, Langley, Richmond, Surrey, and Vancouver. I've also listed the schools in South Surrey / White Rock and given some details on each of the areas they cover. This is separated by *Primary* and *Secondary*. In Canada, primary covers grades 1-7, and secondary covers 8-12. There are also schools that specialize in French immersion, which means they teach all of the classes in French, rather than English.
