French Immersion Programming

The French Immersion Program begins in Kindergarten and promotes both French and English proficiency for students whose parents may or may not have a French background. Although the French Immersion Program curriculum is the same as the English curriculum, the language of instruction is predominantly French.

École Parc Élémentaire is excited to offer single-track French Immersion programming for our students. How single-track French Immersion differs from dual-track:

  • French is used in many aspects of the school day: announcements, extracurricular activities, displays, school songs, celebrations, etc.
  • English Language Arts is taught as a subject and begins in Grade 3.
  • Students are more likely to speak French outside of the classroom setting.
  • Most school resources are in French, contributing to a full immersion experience.
