what's happening

NOTE TO PROSPECTIVE PARENTS

From Gr1 and up, students need to have strong enough foundations and vocabulary in French to learn in French and successfully master the skills they will be introduced to, from that point on. Therefore, students not currently enrolled in a French or an AEFE school will be required to take placement exams to assess their ability to thrive in our program.
