Language Programs & Courses
We offer education in four languages—English, French, German, and Ukrainian—and also offer courses in Japanese and Spanish.
We offer both basic French and French immersion.
Basic French is available in Grades 4–12 across the division.
French immersion allows our students to study French more intensively and graduate with the ability to fluently speak, read, and write in both English and French.
Our dual-track schools offer both English and French immersion programming, while our four French milieu schools have only French immersion.
Students enter the French immersion program in kindergarten or Grade 1, or have the option of late entry into the program in Grade 6 at École Munroe Middle School. In Grade 12, students have the opportunity to obtain an international credential of French language proficiency (Diplôme d'etudes en langue française or DELF), which qualifies them to study at French-speaking universities in Europe.
