French Immersion Program
Ecole Greenfield School is a dual-track elementary school, which means that two programs from Kindergarten to Grade 6 are offered in the same school: English and French Immersion. To complement our strong academic programming, we offer Daily Physical Education and a vibrant Arts program with specialists in both Art and Music.
The Early French Immersion program (FIM) is offered for Kindergarten to Grade 6 and children may enter at either Kindergarten or Grade 1 with no previous knowledge of French. One hundred per cent of instructional time is in French from Kindergarten to January of the grade 2 year. Then at least seventy-five per cent of the instructional time is in French through the end of Grade 6. Click here for French Immersion Kindergarten in Alberta: A Handbook for Parents.

For students with special education needs, inclusion in the community school is the first option considered. Inclusion refers not only to setting but to specially designed instruction and support for students in regular classrooms. Parents and school staff work together to provide the best support to each student. For more information regarding Special Education Click here
