Delta School District’s 24 elementary and seven secondary schools provide safe, culturally diverse and nurturing learning environments. We offer a variety of quality programs to meet unique learning needs and we engage students in stimulating and relevant educational experiences. A dedication to social responsibility teaches our students to respect themselves, their environment and each other.
Ranking highly in student and parent satisfaction surveys, we constantly strive to build real value in education. Our graduation rates are among the highest in British Columbia and our students consistently rate near the top of the annual Foundation Skills Assessment tests. Our emphasis on achievement is reinforced every year with our annual Achievement Contract - ensuring key areas stay in focus and school resources are allocated for the maximum benefit of our students. All of these accomplishments are due as much to the dedication and hard work of teachers and staff as they are to the commitment and support of parents and the broader learning community.
In the Delta School District, our entire community is working hard to become the best district we can be. As a whole, we have identified a vision that we are now committed to achieving. By 2020, the Delta School District will be ‘A leading district for innovative teaching and learner success’.
The Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture is committed to serving all Delta residents by providing opportunities, experiences and events that encourage active participation for all ages and ability levels.

Delta has a hospital, an airport, a museum and archives, libraries, sports and recreational facilities, and many bike and walking trails in a varied network of parks including waterfront parks on the Fraser River, Boundary Bay and Strait of Georgia.
Delta encompasses 180 square kilometres bordered by the Fraser River on the north, the United States border and Boundary Bay on the south, the City of Surrey on the east and the Strait of Georgia on the west.
Residents enjoy safe, clean and quiet neighbourhoods, and the stable prosperity of the community makes it attractive for businesses to choose as their preferred location. Delta's estimated household average income is 30 per cent higher than the Canadian average. The municipality also has one of the fastest growing industrial areas in Greater Vancouver.
With the support of a strong farming and agricultural foundation, Delta has grown into three thriving communities: Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta. We are a vibrant municipality that is rich in soil and water, rich in history and industry, and especially rich in people.
