Calgary French & International School (CFIS) is a full French language immersion independent school, serving 750 students from preschool through to Grade 12. Our immersive French language learning environment inspires children’s unique curiosity and exploration of the world around them through International Baccalaureate, UNESCO and travel studies programming. By the time they graduate high school, our students are bilingual in French and English, and speak fluent Spanish.
CFIS is a caring and supportive community for its students, faculty, and staff. We value openness, inquisitiveness, and understanding of both the community and the world beyond each student’s experience. We provide students and employees with opportunities to lead and grow in a culture of mutual respect, creativity, innovation, and critical thinking. This helps us balance academic excellence with making learning fun to help our students succeed. And we do this all through full French immersion. Most faculty members are fluently bilingual in French and English.
