All Ontario public school students learn French. Learning an additional language enhances cognitive development, teaches understanding, encourages patience, and fosters open-mindedness.

In the Waterloo Region District School Board, we are proud to offer two pathways for students to learn French or develop their French language proficiency. Beginning in Grade 1, all students will have access to French-Language programs through either the Core French or French Immersion programs.
