The bilingual French and English curriculum of Ecole la Nouvelle Vague is based on the Ministry of Education accredited program. This program is enriched by an educational syllabus that provides an experiential learning of many components : an entrepreneurship component, a technology component, a co-education component allowing older students to mentor and share their skills with the younger ones and a sports component.
Our Take: École la Nouvelle Vague
École la Nouvelle Vague is new to Montreal’s educational landscape, and intentionally provides a unique learning profile. Offering a preschool-Grade 6 program, the school offers a strong, bilingual entrée to a child’s formal education. The location, for many families, is optimal. The approach, for many learners, is as well: experiential, inquiry based, and group oriented. The curriculum has been engineered to provide a range of age-appropriate, authentic learning opportunities. The work with local artists and artisans, invited in to provide workshops, is a plus. The school, however, extends that instructional model into areas that are less typical for this age group, including entrepreneurship and technology. Mentorship is a focus, including a partnership with the École de Technologies Superieur. Parents are very welcome to take part in the life of the school through a range of roles. The ideal student is one able to thrive in a very diverse, appropriately challenging learning environment.
