Scarborough, first opened in 1952. In September 2002, the
French Immersion program from Kindergarten to Grade 8 was

families. We strive to enable all students to reach high levels of
achievement and to acquire the knowledge, skills and values
needed to become responsible members of society. We are
committed to providing a learning environment that is safe,
nurturing, positive and respectful. This is enabled through the
active involvement of our students, staff, parents and community.
