IB and French Immersion
It is possible to earn both an IB Diploma and a Nova Scotia French Immersion certificate.
French Immersion students in the Grade 10 Diploma Preparation program at Halifax West take four immersion credits (français 10I, sciences 10I, histoire 10I, and one of arts dramatiques 10I, mode de vie actif or biologie 11I). In the IB Diploma program French Immersion students take IB French HL and IB History SL in French. Students who take these two IB courses and the French Immersion Diploma Preparation program will have completed the requirements to earn the Nova Scotia French Immersion certificate. Students will also earn a Bilingual IB Diploma!
IB French Immersion students will also be eligible to write the DELF exam for internationally recognized French language certification.
