Lower School

There is a library on each campus, with thousands of books, magazines, newspapers, and DVDs in French and English. It's a place for students to visit each week during class time and it's also available twice a week after school for students and parents.

A book fair is held every Spring and Fall and we also host annual author-in-residence sessions, including book signings.
