What programs does East Hill School offer?


East Hill offers an exceptional experience which mirrors the French mother tongue programs and ultimately extends well beyond bilingualism. Our students are skilled in a way that is only made possible through 4 consecutive years of unbroken exposure to French, drawing them closer to the native speaker’s experience.

From the first day of Pre-Kindergarten, students are 100% immersed in French, as they are instructed in all subject matters solely in French. Throughout this time, they will learn to master French numeracy, reading & writing.

Special Programs

East Hill has many special programs and extra-curricular activities offered to its students:
