On Wednesday, November 15, a new school addition to Scott Creek Middle School was announced to increase capacity at that site. With $15 million in funding from the BC Government, the new addition will include ten new classroom spaces and the equivalent of 250 new seats at Scott Creek. The new classrooms are expected to be ready for students in the fall of 2024. The addition to Scott Creek is custom-made and prefabricated off-site which allows for expedited construction. The design and build is sustainable, energy efficient, and built to last. SD43 has been leading the way in developing this new design in school additions and this is a great example of the district's commitment to providing modern educational facilities for students.
"Increasing school capacity is important for our growing community," said Michael Thomas, board chair, Coquitlam School District. “Supported by our SD43 strategic plan, our district utilizes best practices and facilities research to create world-class facilities. We know this model works and we are confident this addition at Scott Creek Middle will serve students well for years to come."
