Our educators use research-based practices and a balanced literacy approach to produce students who are fully bilingual and biliterate in French and English. Students hone their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in both languages. While there are dedicated courses for French and English Language Arts, the French and English teachers harmonize the acquisition of skills by connecting the study of text and grammar in the two languages.
At EB, language is everywhere. Students apply their reading and writing skills in content areas such as science, history, geography, and the arts. Essay writing, in the areas of literary response, informational writing, and persuasive writing, helps to prepare students for high school and higher education.
In Middle School, students are excited to learn a third language. Learning a new language maximizes the ability to develop language skills and cultural awareness to communicate effectively. Our goal is to motivate students to succeed in a multilingual environment. Students choose between Spanish or Mandarin Chinese and receive tailored support in acquiring their next language.
