École du Sommet
I am truly happy that we choose École du Sommet and a Francophone Education for our son. The staff at the school are always encouraging and helpful to both our child and us. I love the fact that the staff is patient and understanding with my attempts to learn French as well.
Mon expérience à cette école est très positive
À l'École du Sommet, tout le monde se connaît et c'est comme une grande famille; il n'y a pas vraiment des groupes sociaux distincts. J'aime qu'on nous montre la culture francophone et qu’on nous expose à toutes les activités amusantes qui sont des traditions francophones, comme le carnasucre, l'épluchette de blé dinde et le lever du drapeau. Mon expérience à cette école est très positive: j'ai rencontré des personnes qui sont vraiment incroyables, les enseignants sont vraiment bons à ce qu'ils font et je vois beaucoup de joie autour de moi. J'aime mon école et j'en suis fière!
La meilleure école pour mes enfants!
En tant que diplômée de l'école du Sommet, et maintenant une mère de quatre élèves qui fréquentent l’école, de la prématernelle à la 7e année, je ne peux pas penser à une meilleure école pour mes enfants! J'adore me sentir comme une famille à l’école du Sommet! En plus, je me sens toujours invitée à prendre part à l'éducation de mes enfants et aux activités culturelles de l'école!
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.
