French Immersion

WJ Mouat Secondary School is proud to be the only high school in the Abbotsford School District to offer a complete French Immersion Program in a Dual Track environment.

Our students have excellent teachers, are taught with innovative techniques and have access to state-of-the-art technology. An annual trip to Europe provides students with hands-on experience in implementing the language skills they have worked hard to develop.

Students are assimilated in every aspect of the high school culture and help to lead our School of Character initiative, Student Leadership events and Social Justice projects. They are involved in the Technology Education, the Arts and Athletics. Work Experience and business are further areas of opportunity for our students.
