Dual Language Program
The Dual Language Program is one in which two languages are used for instruction: English and, in our case, French. 50% of instruction is provided by a French mother tongue teacher and 50% is provided by an English mother tongue teacher, working together as a team. The students are integrated during most of the day, allowing them to learn from each other as proficient peer models. This model allows for additive bilingualism for all students, meaning that academic progress will be maintained in the first language while the student obtains proficiency in a second language.
Our program allows us to continue to fulfill our mission to provide an excellent English education, maintain our strong social and academic objectives, while delivering the added benefit of proficiency in French.
