French Immersion Program Goals

District French Immersion Programs of Choice will operate according to Ministry of Education guidelines, and will be designed to meet the following program goals equally in all dual-track schools:

  • To produce students who are able to understand and communicate effectively in French and English, enabling them to pursue further education, careers and cultural opportunities, in either language.
  • To concurrently meet all Ministry and School Board curricular expectations in all areas of programming, including English Language Arts.
  • To allow students to develop linguistic and cultural knowledge, within a dual-track program, supporting a spirit of positive appreciation and respect.
  • To develop respect, awareness, appreciation, and understanding of Francophone culture, customs and values, particularly in French Canada.
  • To foster the physical, social, intellectual, emotional, and creative development of students.
