    École Brander Gardens School offers French Immersion programming for students Kindergarten through grade 6. Students typically commence French Immersion in Kindergarten or Grade One.

    French Immersion is one approach to second language learning.  Take a look at the attached link to a YouTube video for information on the French Immersion Program within Edmonton Public Schools.  

    French Immersion
    - Students receive 100 percent of their instruction in French in Kindergarten, Grade 1 and part of Grade 2.
    - Students begin formal English Language Arts instruction at the midpoint of Grade 2 and continue to receive English Language Arts in grades 3-12.

    This video was created by the Institute for Innovation in Second Language Education at Edmonton Public Schools to support the promotion and expansion of French immersion programs and increase awareness for the benefits of learning French.
