Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual Program

This program is a partial immersion program, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, where in elementary school 50% of the curriculum is taught in Chinese and 50% in English. Students are taught the same Alberta Education curriculum as others in the same grade level.


The goal of the Chinese Bilingual Program is to have students who are functionally fluent in Chinese as well as in English and to develop an appreciation of the language and culture of Chinese-speaking countries. The Chinese Bilingual Program prepares students to pursue post-secondary education in Chinese.
