although the teachers would talk about integrety, compasion and respect a lot none of the students paid atention and the teachers did not do a lot for the students to start paying attention to integrety, commpassion, and respect
i went to the french school for five years, the teachers cant teach the students cant learn and every one is mean to each other! i was horribly bullied and the teachers did nothing! i once got punched in the face by some one there and the teachers did not even tell the kids parrents! please for your childs happiness and for their learning take them to another school! so many people droped out of that school and did not regret it. you can stop the problem before it happens and not take your child to the french immerssion school. thanks for reading
I feel beginning in 2nd grade, kids should be given HOMEwork in English - a packet a week consistenly. I think the kids would really benefit from this. It seems there is no official "rule" on this, just depends on the teacher. Thankfully, the 3rd grade teachers provide this.
My 3rd grader loves TFS - he has had great teachers and he is so comfortable there. He speaks, reads, and writes in French and now, at the end of 3rd grade, (thanks to his teacher providing homework in English every week) he is at grade level in reading in English and 4th grade level in math/science. He is doing very well and we could not be happier!
The French School is an amazing community of students, parents, and teachers. We have sent two groups of 5th graders to France and have hosted a group of 5th graders from France. We have an active Girl Scouts and Girls on the Run program. We also have an amazing strings instrument program. Everyday our students learn in French via the Primary Years Programme inquiry program. Our students are engaged in hands on learning.
