Learning in a rigorous, bilingual environment gives students the best of both worlds

From Year 7, students choose one of our two pathways: 

  • The Bac Français Bilingue is taught mostly in French with enhanced English, and leads to the French national exams: Brevet and Baccalauréat.
     
  • The English International Programme is taught mostly in English, with French as the second language (beginning or advanced), and leads to the IB Diploma in Years 12 and 13. No previous knowledge of French required in this track.

From Years 7 to 10 our students continue to broaden and train their minds to think in two languages, from literature to arts and from science to maths, acquiring fluency not only in the use of two languages but also in the understanding of different approaches to problem solving and of the influence of different cultures on the way we think. We initiate the formal study of a third modern language in Year 7. Students will choose one from among three or four languages, depending on enrolment.

Our signature “Opening Minds” classes offer a wide array of intellectual pursuits beyond the curriculum and  are intended to further students’ curiosity and joy of learning.
