French Immersion

Bonjour et bienvenue!  Hello and welcome!

École Charlie Killam School is a dual track school that offers French Immersion programming from grades 6 to 8.  Our French Immersion programs are very successful and continue to grow every year.  At ÉCKS, we offer two French Immersion programs:  an Early French Immersion program (for students who started French Immersion in kindergarten or grade 1) and a Late French Immersion program (for students who wish to start French Immersion in grade 6).

Grade 6 students in the French Immersion programs receive instruction in French Language Artsles études socialesles mathématiques, les sciences, l'éducation physique, la santé and les arts.  Like all other grade 6 students at École Charlie Killam School, they also receive instruction in English Language Arts and Band.  French Immersion students in grades 7 and 8 have the opportunity to participate in a variety of complementary courses in addition to their French Immersion classes.
