Language/medium of instruction

Here, I’ve included both English & French-language high schools. Some schools have English set as their language of instruction. Some other schools are French-language schools, where French is the primary language of instruction.

 

Which language school is better?

French or English? Are you confused about the ideal language of instruction? The solution is simple! Just choose the language that your child is most comfortable in dealing with! If he/she is better at understanding and speaking French, choose a French-language school. If he/she is fluent in English and likes the language, go for an English-language school!
