The Ministry of Education and Child Care announced that Abbotsford Middle School would be getting an expansion on Friday (June 14). 

"I am pleased to see these new capital funds addressing the growing student enrolments in the Abbotsford School District,” said Shirley Wilson, Abbotsford board of education chair. 

The 200-seat, eight classroom expansion will aid the growing school-aged population in the city. It is expected to be ready for students in the fall of 2025. 

With $12 million provided by the provincial government, the new addition will be built with prefabricated materials. Prefabricated architecture is constructed off-site, shipped to the destination and then assembled.

“This project will help manage the significant growth at Abbotsford Middle School with the prefabricated design providing relief much sooner than a traditional project," Wilson said. 

There will be additional space for corridors, lockers, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The expansion is one of several new prefabricated projects in B.C. schools. 

Over the past seven years, the province has approved more than $70 million to build and upgrade schools in the Abbotsford School District. Construction is underway on additions at Auguston Traditional Elementary and Margaret Stenersen Elementary that will add 360 more spaces for students.
