Athmosphère familiale, l’aspet culturel et francophone, la qualité de l’enseignement!
Ma femme et moi ne regrettrons jamais notre choix d'envoyer nos 3 enfants à l'École Des Beaux Lacs. L'athmosphère familiale, l'aspet culturel et francophone, la qualité de l'enseignement, et les amitiés inoubliables serviront tous à developper leur confiance et approfondir les connaissances nécéssaires afin de devenir des citoyens de premières classes. La création d'une société vibrante est fondée sur le développement de nos enfants. L'École Des Beaux Lacs joue un role primordial dans ce cheminement et nos finissants en sont l'example de cette réussite.
Témoignage d’un parent
Nos enfants fréquentent maintenant l’École des Beaux Lacs. Cette école française est, sans aucun doute, une des meilleures choses que Bonnyville a à offrir. Les enseignants et le personnel sont formidables. Nos enfants adorent les jours d’école. La grandeur de cette école, primaire/secondaire, aide beaucoup à la rencontre et à se faire de nouveaux amis. Lorsque nous nous y rendons, tout le monde sait qui nous sommes et qui sont nos enfants. Nous n’avons jamais l’impression d’être, seulement, un numéro. De belles années à venir pour nos enfants… … et leurs parents!
Questions and answers
The school provides an inclusive and differentiated program to answer the francization needs of each child or student, from preschool to Grade 12. The resource that we use for assessment, support and follow-up is called “Seuil repères’’ and is published by Alberta Education.
The school must teach the same programs as all the English language schools. Starting in 3rd Grade, students have to attend English classes, as prescribed by the Ministry. Students who do not speak English can benefit from the same differentiated services as the students needing francization. We use the “Proficiency Benchmarks “, as prescribed by the Ministry, for assessing and following-up in English as a second language.
Parents are always welcome at the school. Even if you do not speak French, you will have many opportunities to get involved in the life of the school. Parents are encouraged to give their name if they wish to volunteer and they will be assigned to appropriate activities according to their level of proficiency, in the language of their choice.
The school supports the education of students who have different learning needs. The school provides professional assessments and testing starting in early childhood. Personalized action plans are developed in collaboration with the parents, including the necessary programs and support for these students according to their needs.
