French Immersion program for Kingsclear Consolidated School - Gr 1. and Gr. 3 entry point
KCS is the only south-side Fredericton school to not offer French Immersion to our students. This is a significant factor in the enrollment numbers and sustainability of the school. Each year we send 1-2 classes of students to a neighbouring school that does offer French Immersion. This school is now at the point of adding portables to deal with overcrowding. Kingsclear Consolidated has the space and the interest from parents. In addition, many parents who might choose French Immersion do not wish to leave the school and are forced to make a very difficult choice. Do you keep your child in a positive learning environment, in a school they love, that delivers 100% student achievement scores in the standardized tests for literacy OR do you uproot them, sending them to a school that is at capacity, in order to have them attend French Immersion which KCS has both the room and desire for. This adds additional burden and stress to families and children requiring the need to also manage a transition to a much larger/different school environment, while trying to support the learning of a new language. Please bring French Immersion for September 2018 to Kingsclear and let us bring the best of all educational opportunities to our children.
