We also provide first-rate counselling and other personal, health and educational support to our student population to enrich the life of adolescents as they engage in this next stage of learning. Our secondary level French programs continue to extend and exceed the Quebec Ministry of Education standards. Full cafeteria services are offered in most schools.
This is what our students say about us...
I first started studying in Montreal, I had many difficulties because I had to learn English and French at the same time. But thanks to the help of many teachers and friends, I was able to overcome those difficulties. Don’t be afraid because you are not comfortable speaking in English and French. It is your first adventure in a new country. Embrace experience to make new friends who speak different languages. It opened my eyes to whole new world.

3 years of high school at EMSB gave me the most beautiful memory in my life. I would like to thank EMSB International Student Facilitators for organizing extracurricular activities to help us deepen our understanding of the new culture and contribute to our unique experience in Canada.

Being a shy international student was not a wise move, but EMSB got my back and introduced me to the community where the students were just as homesick as me. Let us just say I made lifetime friends! Go to the EMSB orientation for international students which will take place every year after the pandemic!! It is helpful for fresh off the boats and a great chance to get in touch with your community in a foreign country.
