The Comox Valley School District 71, offers two French Immersion options: Early French Immersion, beginning at Kindergarten/Grade One and Late French Immersion beginning at Grade 6. The French Immersion program was created specifically for children whose first language is not French. It is common for parents to have little or no knowledge of the French language. Communication, newsletters home, report cards and parent-teacher conferences are all in English.
