My son is in the French Immersion program and I can not say enough good things about it. His class has 15 students in it. The gifted program is also available at this school. My son has attended this school for the last four years. He is challenged and enjoys going to school. I have found getting in to see the teachers and principal easy and both to be receptive to any concerns.
