Princess Margaret Secondary is a public high school in Surrey, British Columbia and is part of School District 36 Surrey. The school is notable in Surrey for its sports programs. The goals of Princess Margaret Secondary include increasing reading comprehension and increasing numeracy skills in Grade 8 students.[1] The Princess Margaret Secondary school is located only 2 street blocks east of the Surrey Campus of Kwantlen Polytechnic University. The current building was completed in 1999; a previous smaller brick and mortar building served secondary students at the same site from the early 1960s until the summer of 1998 when it was demolished.



The Princess Margaret Secondary School was named after Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, the younger sister of Canadian Monarch Queen Elizabeth II.

Student Volunteer Work[edit]

Princess Margaret students volunteered again in 2011 with the installation of Christmas lights at St. Paul's Hospital for the 'Lights of Hope' campaign in Vancouver. The student volunteers are enrolled in the BCIT Electrical Program while in secondary school.[2][3][4]
