English and French Immersion Programming
Parents can enroll their children in the English Program or the French Immersion Program. The English Program includes a Core French component. French Immersion provides a balance of English and French instruction.
In Rainbow Schools, Core French is offered daily beginning in Grade 4. Through the study of French, students will communicate and interact purposefully and with confidence while developing the necessary skills to be intercultural citizens of Canada and the world. The Core French program emphasizes the development of oral proficiency while focusing on authentic learning related to real-life experiences and interests. The value of learning French, one of Canada’s two official languages, is reinforced through cultural experiences. The Core French program offers students the opportunity to develop a functional use of the French language that can be expanded through further study at the secondary school level.
In French Immersion, students learn to communicate and interact effectively in an inclusive classroom environment and through the study and integration of other subjects. This enriches their vocabulary, develops their problem solving skills, and increases their opportunities to speak French in meaningful contexts. French Immersion provides students with an understanding of intercultural awareness by exploring diverse cultures and develops skills in accessing and understanding information about various French speaking communities. Students also develop strong fundamental skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing. French Immersion is designed for English-speaking parents/guardians in such a way that they can support their children.
