Meadowridge School adds nine new classrooms

Maple Ridge school marks start of campaign to expand

Meadowridge School is growing and wants to keep doing so.

The private school, located on 240th Street and founded in 1985, recently opened its new, nine-classroom expansion and marked the event with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and assembly on Friday.

The expansion includes two new science labs.

The opening of the building also marks the launch of Audacity, the capital campaign to build out the campus for a total enrolment of 800 students over the next five to seven years, said Daniel Le Page, with the school.

“It is a $25- to $30-million campaign over the next five to seven years and we are reaching out to our parent community, our alumni, our staff, everyone,” said associate director of development Danielle Christensen.

She added the campaign is labelled Audacity because the school was founded in 1985 by a group of parents who had the vision to build a private school in Maple Ridge.

“Today we are celebrating by continuing to be audacious and launching a capital campaign.”

The current enrolment at Meadowridge is 670 students.
