HISTORY OF LANGLEY SECONDARY

In the early 1950’s, if you were a teen in Langley you attended Langley High School.  LHS had been built in 1948, replacing the older high school building, where, bursting at the seams, students had to attend in either morning or afternoon shifts to accommodate them all. After the move, the older high school was turned into Langley Central School.

The first graduating class at the new school was the class of 1949.  There were 23 classrooms, a gym, science laboratories, 3 shops for industrial education and farm mechanics – and almost 1000 students.  In 1949-50, Grade 13 was added to the curriculum, whereas before students would have had to travel to other municipalities. A fire destroyed the industrial wing on April 30th, 1951, but it was soon rebuilt.

As families boomed, so did Langley’s population. By 1957-5, LHS had to again go on shifts as it had done in the old building, until Aldergrove High School opened in 1958. Students in the eastern half of the municipality attended Aldergrove, and students in the west attended Langley High School. Although it has grown and changed over the years, Langley High School, now Langley Secondary School, still serves many Langley teens.
