L'Etoile du Nord French Immersion 5

Posted February 08, 2016

After looking at many schools, both public and private, we decided on L'Etoile du Nord for our daughter. We are so glad we did! Her kindergarten experience has been wonderful! She has learned so much French and loves her teachers and her classmates. We were concerned that because she is very shy, an immersion school might not be the right fit, but she surprised us and has adjusted beautifully. She does interesting things at school and always has something to tell us about. She is in the Discovery Club for before/after school care and that has been a good experience also. She wants to be taken to Discovery Club early so she doesn't miss anything they are doing. Most of her kindergarten classmates take the bus to and from school, and we are going to start having her take the bus at least one way also, after hearing good reports from other parents. We are so pleased with this school and really feel we are giving our daughter a unique experience by sending her here.

Some teachers are much more superior than others. We have been lucky thus far that we have had great teachers.

Amount of homework: Don't know

In kindergarten my daughter received much more homework than she does in 1st grade now with Mr. Kakou, which is odd. Each teacher seems to have their own individual system. Mr. Kakou gives the perfect amount of homework. They are short and quick which is all a 1st grader needs. I think the school should have a bit more of a consistent homework guideline amongst teachers.

Very very happy with L'etoile Du Nord. My child is now in 1st grade and has Mr. Kakou - who is absolutely wonderful. She is happy and is continually challenged but equally supported, which I think is great. I think some teachers may be better than others but we are so happy with how this year has gone thus far and are looking forward to the next years.

Mr Kakou. You put my faith back in the school system because you make my child feel safe and cared for and smart.

I can only speak for my child's teacher - he is wonderful. His calm demeanor and patient temperament ensure that he brings out the very best in his students.

To be fair they get a good amount of homework - my issue is with the level.

The nature of French immersion means that it is a challenge and one that needs persistence.

I don't have enough experience of this yet. Their teacher certainly does as an individual.
