  • No. At the early grade levels, as most of the courses are taught in French, students adapt very quickly.  Parents do not need to speak French.  For older students, we have a Linguistic Academic Support program that harnesses those in need of such support and efficiently prepares students for full-course integration.
  • Time spent on homework is relative to the student’s grade division. At the early divisions, students are expected to have approximately 30-45 minutes of homework per night.  As the students grow older, the load increases, relative to the courses; however, so does the student’s ability to time-manage and this is partially due to our Method of Study courses, which begin in Grade 6.
