Our new program will give first-grade students a firm foundation in the French language, preparing them to thrive as they progress in their bilingual journey at the Lycée in second grade, third grade and beyond.
For first grade, students will be immersed in a class with bilingual first graders for art, music, English, and physical education. For French reading, math, and other subjects, they will be part of a small cohort of students learning French as a Second (or third!) Language.
An outstanding, caring pedagogical team will support your child's learning of the French language, as they continue to engage in the essential skills and subjects of first grade:
- French-speaking homeroom teacher
- Specialized French as a second language teacher for French language arts, adapted math and social studies
- English teacher
- French-speaking Art, music, and physical education teachers
Key language acquisition competencies will be regularly reviewed to provide teachers and also parent/guardians and students themselves with information about their progress and ways in which they can further their learning, both in and out of the classroom.
