Bilingualism at the heart of our curriculum

In Preschool, children receive four hours of English every week. Then, as the children get older the number of hours taught in English gradually increases to 6.5 hours in first grade and 10 hours in 4th grade. By the time children reach Middle School, 55% of teaching is done in French and 45% in English. The ultimate goal is fluency in both languages. And, it works.
