The secondary school graduation rate continues to climb among students in Ontario’s 12 French-language school boards
 
This spring, the Ministry of Education unveiled the province wide 2015-16 secondary school graduation rate for students who started Grade 9 in the 2011-12 school year. The rate has hit a new record of 86.5%.

Further analysis of the data among French language school boards once again highlights their students’ remarkable performance. Indeed, at 92.8%, their graduation rate in five years or less remains significantly above the provincial average of 86.5%. The average for French-language schools was of 92.4% in 2014-15 compared to 85.5% for the provincial average.

Francophone immigration and French language schools
 
In an effort to consistently welcome and integrate new comers who have previous knowledge of French, a number of initiatives and resources were implemented to ensure that French language education is better known and to offer support to those who enroll.

Here are a few:

The Les travailleurs et travailleuses en établissements dans les écoles (TÉÉ) Program.

Thanks to Ontario’s TÉÉ Program, 6 Ontario communities offer newly arrived Francophones significant and continued support in their French language elementary and secondary schools. TÉÉs aims to facilitate integration and academic success among French language schools in the Catholic and public boards and encourage their fulfilment as well as that of their families.
