Our science program is taught in English by a certified Science Teacher Specialist. The Program begins in grade one, as the kindergarten students integrate the sciences with their other curriculum content, and do so in French. The approach to the program is highly academic, but with an emphasis on exploration, experiments and hands-on learning experiences. The classes are dynamic in nature and highly engaging.
