Next message, after my rental request.

What are my options for francophone schooling for my naturally anglo/franco bilingual children?
One will be 10 and the other 9 by September 2013. I thought Stanislas looked good, but I heard from a French friend that it is not the best option... are the public francophone schools ok?

Both are outstripping their French classmates, and my son has been pushed up a year already... is that sort of thing recognised in the local schools? I understand it often depends on specific teachers obviously.

So, in brief: best francophone school in the city? And .... go!

It depends if you think returning to France someday before the end of the "Lycée". If yes, your kids should go to Stanislas (I live right across the college in Outremont, je parle francais, mais pour les besoins de la cause du forum, continuons en anglais). This college obey to the same school system in France. Any other french schools (Quebec system) would take them, no problem.

Personnaly, I don't like your school system, kids go to university 1 year earlier because they don't have to do the "CEGEP" so they are quite immature beside the others at this age.

There are also very good private colleges. College Notre-Dame, Brébeuf (boys only), Jean-Eudes, College de Montreal, Regina-Assumpta. Some public schools can be very hardcore for your kids, but most of the public schools are very good. And yes, it depends on teachers.

Bonne chance dans vos projets! ;-)

merci Padzine pour votre réponse.

Le moment arrive ou il faut faire un choix - Montréal ou Geneve. Last minute option of a job has thrown the plans into a turmoil...
