Teen Recreation and Educational Services (TREES)


TREES is an alternate school offering High School Graduation and optional adult Dogwood Diploma to Surrey youth aged 13 – 18. TREES is delivered in partnership with the Surrey School District. This program provides individualized and group support for students with significant behavioral needs and who meet the criteria required for receiving an H designation. This program includes both academic courses as well as a range of physical activities and outdoor education. Referrals are made by MCFD to PCRS and reviewed with the Student Support Team.

The TREES program has a high staff to student ratio and small classroom sizes, which makes it possible for staff to offer one-to-one support. TREES staff include teachers, educational assistants, and youth outreach workers. Students receive individualized educational plans.
