Knowing an additional language is an important skill for up-and-coming citizens of the world … and more and more parents within our school division are recognizing the value in additional-language education.
Students in Seven Oaks School Division have the opportunity to study in more than a dozen different languages, including one as an immersion program and two as bilingual courses of study, at numerous schools throughout the division.
We offer K-12 French Immersion.
Since students attend kindergarten for only a half-day, the majority of lessons are taught in French to increase literacy and help students gain a higher understanding of their new language. Students in Grades 1-5 receive French instruction in most subject areas, for approximately 75% of the school day. At the Middle and Senior Years levels, students receive instruction in French for 40-70% of the school day.
Attending an information meeting or contacting one of the following schools will allow you to find out more about the French Immersion program.
We encourage students to enter the program at the Kindergarten or Grade 1 level to ensure maximum comprehension and benefits.
