French Vision

Students will communicate and interact with growing confidence in French, one of Canada’s official languages, while developing the knowledge, skills, and perspectives they need to grow and fulfill their school goals.

Our goal is to prepare students for the work force as much as their academic post-secondary endeavours. To have success, students will need to be responsible for their own learning, as they work independently, in groups and at home to further what is done in class. Students are required to communicate and interact in French all times and in a variety of social settings. This will enable them to have success on the DELF test in grade 12.


Every child that is in our French classes in grade 12 (FIF4U/C or FSF4U) is eligible to take the test. This is a test that assess how bilingual your child has become. It is world recognised and opens many doors for university and the work force. For more information take a look at these two sites.

Here is more info on the test:
