Build strong foundations

The primary school welcomes about 260 international students from 2 ½ to 10 years old in 15 classes. The main mission of the primary school, which includes preschool & kindergarten (grouped together as MaternelleTPS/PS, MS, GS) and elementary school (Grades 1-5 – CP, CE1, CE2, CM1, CM2) remains the structured acquisition of fundamental knowledge and elementary skills. Reading, writing, counting, and expressing oneself in one’s own language and in several others constitute the foundation for the primary students.

Our teachers are accredited by the French Ministry of Education and implement the French curriculum. The French learning staff is supported by 5 English teachers who are native speakers. English language instruction constitutes one of the focuses of the school project associated with proficiency in languages. Our unique and innovative language program offers daily English classes starting in pre-kindergarten, as well as the discovery of 4 languages starting in Grade 4 (Spanish, German, Mandarin and Italian).

We incorporate the latest technology in all aspects of the curriculum with the goal of providing students a new way to find, analyze and present information while learning the role played by technology in a more and more globalized world.  The use and understanding of new technology provides transversal learning whereby students learn a given subject at the same time as acquiring new skills in technology.
