The SDCSB offers an early French Immersion program option which is available to all students. This is a highly successful approach to second language learning in which students receive instruction in French for a significant portion of the day. Students study the same curriculum content as their peers in the regular English program. It is designed to provide English-speaking children with the opportunity to become highly proficient in French as well as in English. There is no expectations that parents of students in the French Immersion program are able to understand or speak French.
