We recognize the importance of language learning in the global society in which we live. With the teaching of French as a second language, our students gain an appreciation for our Quebec cultural identity. Through a research-based interactive multi sensory program, students enthusiastically learn to communicate in French in a variety of social and academic contexts.

Although we follow the curriculum guidelines, we are able to modify the program individually for those who are new to French language learning, and enrich the program for those who are more advanced.

Through this dynamic, engaging method of instruction, students gain proficiency vital to an interconnected world.

The teaching of math, science and technology combines the best of traditional methodology with cutting edge contemporary practice.

Multimodal and hands-on instruction allows students to process information in a variety of ways and offers strategies which are beneficial for all learning styles. Manipulative tools and technology based online instructional methods (IXL MATH, teacher created videos, iPads) engage students in meaningful activities. For students who struggle with math conceptual learning, intensive remediation in our resource room provides them with the strategies they require for concept mastery. Students who are working at advanced levels in math receive enrichment.

Incorporating STEAM education (the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) allows us to meet the guidelines in a variety of unique and engaging ways. With an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking, an active classroom offers students real life authentic application opportunities. Our 3D printer, makerspaces in each classroom, coding and robotics classes, trigger an excitement for inquisitive, exploratory learning. Visits to the Montreal Science Centre, Biodome, Botanical Gardens, Insectarium allow students to experience the world of science in their own community. Our outdoor garden classroom immerses students in the natural world in our own backyard.
The use of information and learning technology is embedded within teaching and learning, and supports students in an active process of discovery and innovation.

While adhering to the Quebec Ministry of Education’s guidelines, the English Language Arts program can be adapted or modified depending on the skill level of the student. Students enjoy a variety of text and literature genres including poetry, fiction, non-fiction, short stories, novels, biographies, myths and legends, both in the classroom and in our library. Students facing challenges in reading and writing receive intensive remediation (See Support). Advanced students have the opportunity to surpass grade level skills.

Our students are enthusiastic language learners thanks to a variety of school events and activities which challenge and motivate them, including Book Club, Reading Challenge, Reader’s Theatre, an online e-book guided reading program, and trips to the theatre. Our students connect with others through literature on a global level, by participating in the Global Read Aloud. Literary discussions with classes around the world increases engagement and ignites an appreciation for the value of reading. Our rich language arts program inspires our students to develop a love for reading that will last a lifetime.
