In 2007, we enrolled our oldest child in Junior Kindergarten when she was three. It is now 2017 - our oldest daughter has started high school and our other two children are in Grade 7 and Grade 4. We have been consistently impressed by the personalized attention the teachers at KWBS provide for our children. In Kindergarten and early grades, the teachers were kind and patient but also had high expectations for the kids. As they progressed, the teachers would offer extra teaching or activities for interested students, such as geography club, math tutoring, putting on musical productions or even recommending and discussing novels written for native Francophones. There were opportunities to become involved in or initiate charity events designed to help local organizations like the Humane Society. The class size of 12-20 students with two teachers per class ensured that each student received individual attention and teachers were always available to meet with us to address any concerns we had. All of our kids are conversant in French and have had great academic success. Our oldest continues to do very well academically in high school.
