English Core

All elementary schools across the English Montreal School Board offer various levels of French language instruction integrated within the Québec Education Program. Research shows that bilingualism has many cognitive benefits that go beyond those of language acquisition such as heightened mental flexibility, creative thinking skills, enhanced metalinguistic awareness as well as greater communicative sensitivity.

The English Core Program offers 68% of English instruction and 32% of French instruction per day.
