West Island College is two schools under the same roof: an entirely French school and an English school with a French immersion program. Both schools are all-gender, independent, secondary schools offering enriched studies in French and English, leading to a D.E.S and recognized by the MEQ.
The Co-ed High School Advantage
Having boys and girls in a classroom together can be a very enriching experience as different perspectives are shared and confidence is built. We prepare your child for the world outside the classroom by presenting him/her with real-world experiences. Learning to work with others is a tool for success and a gift you can give your child by placing him/her in a co-educational environment
