The Giles School was founded on the concept of early academic intervention within a bilingual setting. Our highly enriched French immersion academic programme, beginning in Pre-K (age 2), gives Giles School students an education comparable to the best programmes in the world. The school is registered as a charitable organization.
Unique to the Giles School is our enriched French immersion programme, which enables children with no previous French experience to read and write in French by the end of Grade 1. The Giles School is the only school in Canada to offer all of the following:
The Giles School pursues international academic excellence by providing a nurturing environment for emotional and intellectual growth, a curriculum based upon the highest international standards and proven methodologies and instills in children a sense of responsibility and confidence to meet the challenges of an ever increasingly complex world.
Beyond making your child an engaged citizen of Canada by speaking both official languages, becoming fluent in a second language improves English language skills as well as mental agility and creative thinking. In other words, learning French makes children better at math and science as well. The Giles School accepts children at the Pre-K (age 2) level through Grade 1 with no previous French experience.
With the advantage of a small, safe and supportive classroom community, all Giles School students display increased emotional maturity, mental agility and scholastic self-motivation. In addition, students become fluent in two or more languages by Grade 3 and achieve well academic in all subjects including English.
The third language programme at The Giles School offer all students higher academic achievement, specialized cultural knowledge and versatile communication skills that expand mental, cultural and economic possibilities.
Early morning (7:30 am – 8:30 am) and afternoon childcare (3:45 pm – 5 pm) every school day is included in the price of tuition. Extended childcare is available from 5 pm – 6 pm for the cost of $5 a day.
