We love Ecole Bilingue! Both of our kids started in preschool, where they seemed to pick up French in no time. The classes are small, and the teacher ratio is such that no child's individual needs go unnoticed. Every child has (or one day will have) their own challenges, and the teachers are committed to helping make a plan for their success. The kids feel involved and their curiosity is nurtured. Now in 3rd grade and Kindergarten, our kids have a unique international perspective, a heightened awareness and play with language, and an interest in history, art and music that spans beyond our own local "bubble". Further, the school and other families provide a truly unique community that we have come to value dearly. It's a special place and a great school.
