welcome to the welcome centre
The Surrey School District English Language Learner Welcome Centre is centrally located in Surrey on the main floor of the City Square building at #120-7525 King George Boulevard. We are here to welcome English Language Learner (ELL) students and their families and ease their integration into the Surrey school system and community.
The staff at the Welcome Centre is committed to assisting our District’s ELL students with their transition to a new school system and community by facilitating effective reception, language assessment, and appropriate placement. The Welcome Centre staff provides registration support, information about the B.C. education system, school and community programs/services.

The Welcome Centre staff supports Surrey schools by assisting with ELL student registration and by conducting the initial language assessment. In addition, school staff can access a wide range of resources at the Welcome Centre library to support our English Language Learners with their language needs and integration into the schools.
