Extended French


Extended French (Elementary)

In elementary, Extended French is offered from Grades 5 to 8 in 18 schools. Students learn French as a subject and French serves as the language of instruction in at least one other subject, such as social studies, history, geography, physical education, health and visual arts. 
Instruction is provided in French for approximately 50% of the total instructional time until Grade 8 graduation. French instructional time may vary to address the school’s local need, particularly in combined grades.

Learn more about our virtual information sessions coming up in December and January.
