French Programs 
 
The Coquitlam School District offers the following French Programs :

Core French

From Grades 5 to 8, all students in B.C. are required to have second language instruction. Core French is taught in every one of our elementary and middle schools. These courses help students communicate in French and experience francophone cultures.

Early French Immersion

This is a program for non-francophone students to become bilingual. Basic curriculum instruction is provided entirely in French during the first years, with English-language instruction added gradually.

Early French Immersion Information Meetings will be held at 7:00pm on the following dates and locations:

  • January 5th, 2015 @ Porter Elementary
