French Immersion

French immersion is a successful approach to second language learning due to its unique learning environment. French is the language of instruction for several or all subjects other than English Language Arts.

Grande Prairie Public School Division offers a comprehensive French Immersion program at École Montrose (School of Choice) and Charles Spencer High School (Program of Choice).

This programming is part of our commitment to providing your child with opportunities to support their unique learning journey.
