Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer
The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.
The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.
The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.
The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.
In addition to the two system-wide intensive French programs (Early French Immersion and Middle French Immersion), there are also other intensive French programs offered in individual schools or in a smaller number of areas. See below for more information regarding the program, catchment areas and admission procedures.
This program is currently phasing out. The last cohort to begin the Grade 6 Intensive Extended French program starts in September 2021.
The Grade 7 Extended French program offers students who have successfully completed three years of Core French the option to enter into a more intensive program in Grade 7. These students spend approximately 40% of their day in French classes at the Extended French school.
The attendance area for an Extended French school is created by "associated" English feeder schools. To locate the Grade 7 entry Extended French school in your area, you must first confirm the English school for your home address, then visit our Extended French Location Finder.
Note: This program is currently phasing out. The last cohort to begin the Grade 7 entry Extended French starts in September 2022.
Students who are not in the catchment of a Grade 7 entry Extended French school may apply under Optional Attendance if there is available space.
