Our French Immersion program was established in 1980 and now includes 10% of students across the district. All subjects are taught in French (except the formal study of English). French Immersion is designed for students whose first language is not French. The objective is full mastery of the English Language, functional literacy in French, as well as an understanding and appreciation of the French culture.
French Immersion is offered at the following schools which are 'dual track"in that they offer both French Immersion and regular English programming.
