Yellowknife Education District No. 1 has over 35 years of experience with successful French Immersion programming. These programs are open to all students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12.
French Immersion is a highly successful approach to second language learning — an effective way for students to become functionally fluent in French while achieving all of the objectives of the regular school program. French is the language of instruction for a significant part of the school day; that is, several or all subjects, except for English language arts, are taught in French. This program is designed for students whose first language is not French. The objective is full mastery of the English language, functional fluency in French, as well as an understanding and appreciation of the French culture.
YK1 have 6 neighborhood schools and 3 of them offers immersion programs.
Fort Smith Chapter
We have Canadian parents for French Chapter in Fort Smith.
Fort Smith is a beautiful town located where the Slave River divides the boreal plains from the Canadian Shield. With a population of just under 2,500, the town is big enough to boast some of the best facilities in the Northwest Territories and small enough to make you feel at home.
Fort Smith’s students can follow their education right from Kindergarten to post-secondary within the town’s borders. Culture camps, literacy activities, student achievement awards and parent councils create a vibrant educational environment. Fort Smith is considered an education center in the North and students from across the NWT and Nunavut are enrolled in the local Aurora College campus. The elementary and high schools are governed by the South Slave Divisional Education Council and the Forth Smith District Education Authority. All three educational institutions are at the heart of community spirit in Fort Smith.
