The main difference between the two schools is that in the English school, Math, Science, Ethics and Study Methods are taught in English. The remaining courses are taught in French. They include: géographie, histoire, musique, arts plastiques, éducation physique and français. We offer two levels of French language instruction: français langue d’enseignement and français langue seconde enrichi, depending on your child’s placement. If your child does not have an English eligibility certificate, they are welcome to apply to our French school. In the French school, all subjects are taught in French. Students in the French school also benefit from an enriched English language course rather than English as a second language. Students from both schools seamlessly coexist in a bilingual environment.
Our unique semester system allows us to offer both musique and arts plastiques in secondary I and II – each for two terms in the same year. There are 4 terms in each school year for the junior school. A term is composed of 9 weeks.
In addition to the country’s two official languages, all students learn Spanish in secondary II. Students have the option to continue their Spanish studies in secondary III.
WIC offers students a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and students may come to school with a laptop or tablet of their choice. Any windows based laptops (PC) must be equipped with up-to-date and effective antivirus software.
