Arabic Bilingual Program

Calder School is a District site for the Arabic Bilingual alternative program and is offered from Kindergarten to Grade 6. The Arabic Bilingual Program provides students with opportunities to acquire or maintain proficiency in both Arabic and English and to obtain knowledge of related cultures.

Programming begins in Kindergarten, although children may also enter grade 1 without previous knowledge of the language. Later entry is determined through a monitored assessment.
