Smiling Creek Elementary is a new state-of the-art school built to accommodate students in the growing Burke Mountain community in northeast Coquitlam. Construction began in the summer of 2016 with the new school opening to students, staff and teachers on September 4, 2018.

The 3,700-square metre two-story school provides 430 new student spaces (80 kindergarten and 350 elementary), as well as an activity centre.

Students, families and community members of Burke Mountain will benefit from this new school due to its multi-use model – school, activity centre and sports field.

The multi-purpose activity centre is a shared facility with the City of Coquitlam who provided the joint-use sports field as part of a collaborative project to offer several amenities together at one location.

Joint-use sports field provided by the City of Coquitlam.
