ABOVE & BEYOND

Junior School

(Secondary 1-3)

In the French school, all subjects are taught in French, with the exception of English, which is taught as an enriched, mother-tongue course. The French instruction is Français langue maternelle or Langue Seconde Enrichi (depending on the child’s placement).

In the English school, Math, Science, Ethics and Study Methods are taught in English. The remaining courses are in French. They include: géographie, histoire, musique, arts plastiques, education physique and French. We are able to provide Mother Tongue French or Langue Seconde Enrichi (depending on the child’s placement.) Students in the English school must possess a Certificate of Eligibility for English studies.

JUNIOR SCHOOL

Secondary 1, 2, 3: Learning how to learn / Building solid foundations
Students are placed into either French mother tongue or French second language enriched so no matter which school they choose, all of our graduates have the confidence and ability to speak, write and work in both English and French. Every student learns mother tongue English regardless of whether they are studying in the French or English school.

We offer a pull out “Gifted and Talented” Math class in secondary I and II by invitation only. This small group meets weekly to take concepts that they are learning in class and apply it to real-world situations. We give each child an opportunity to stretch their imaginations and scientific capacities with our Robotics program as an elective in the secondary III level and in our Robotics Club for all levels.

All students learn Spanish in secondary II and have the option to continue those studies in secondary III and V.

In secondary 1 students learn how to learn in an environment that places equal value on technology and various teaching methods, where students master the art of organizational skills and adopt study skills. The Study Methods course is uniquely tailored to help students succeed at WIC and beyond.

There are a myriad of opportunities to study the arts in class and outside of class time. In the Junior School our students get to take visual arts and music in the same school year thereby enhancing their creative development in tandem with their other academic pursuits.

All students learn Spanish in secondary II and have the option to continue those studies in secondary III and V.

Secondary 3 is a transitional year as it is year 1 of cycle 2. This is a critical year as it builds the foundation for senior school. Students are guided in the decision-making process that will impact them beyond high school and we inform and support them every step of the way.

Secondary III students can choose to pursue optional courses in a variety of interesting areas including art, music, theater, Spanish, robotics, physical or outdoor education.
