After several county meetings and various debates, Surf City will see a new beginning. Their very first school! It has been approved for Surf City Elementary & Middle School to begin construction. With the growth in population Surf City has seen recently, a new school is just what the city needs. Overcrowding in the schools take away from students learning and comfortability. With a new school, teachers can have more one on one interaction with each student to help them learn and grow further in their education. This could give new possibilities for real estate growth and local business traffic as well. Giving parents less commute times to schools and shopping is a major plus!


Surf City groundbreaking occurred on December 16, 2016 for news reporters and residents to witness. The school is estimated to be completed by 2017.
