By the end of the four-year high school program, students will be able to converse in French, take French courses at the college or university level, and work at a job where French is the working language. A certificate in French Immersion is granted for successful completion of four courses and a minimum of six courses in other subjects taught in French.
French Immersion is designed for children from non-French speaking families. The standard entry point is SK. There are no entrance requirements. Students who successfully complete 10 credits at the secondary level will be granted a French Immersion certificate.
In senior kindergarten, Grades 1, 2, and 3, instruction in French is provided 80 –100% of the time.
Grade 4 to 6 students have a minimum of 60% French instruction.
In Grades 7 and 8, the balance between English and French is 50/50.
Math is taught in English from grades four to eight. Science is the other subject that is primarily taught in English after Grade 3.
NOTE: English is used to communicate between the school and home.
Children entering the program may register for JK at the school they will attend for French Immersion. The program usually starts at the SK level.
All TLDSB French Immersion schools are dual-track, which means there are regular English classes as well as French Immersion.
