French as a Second Language at Glendale School

The Calgary Board of Education has been a leader in providing rich and varied language programs in the province for many years.

French as a Second Language programs develop a foundation in a second language as well as an appreciation of other cultures. A second language is taught as a subject, for 75 to 95 hours per year in elementary and junior high school and 125 hours per course in senior high school. These programs generally begin in Grade 4. However, at Glendale School this program currently begins at grade 3. Elementary schools, in consultation with the community, determine the language and culture program needs and interests in their school. Grade 7-9 schools are required to offer a second language program. All senior high schools (except special settings) offer second language courses.

We are pleased to offer a quality French as a Second Language program at Glendale School.
