Following approval of its application this spring, the school is now moving forward on a path to become one of five International Baccalaureate (IB) programs offered in our West Vancouver Schools.

As an IB candidate school, Ecole Cedardale is undergoing an intensive process to prepare the school to deliver the IB Primary Years Program (PYP) in a French Immersion environment. Following successful authorization, Ecole Cedardale could become the first French Immersion elementary school in the province to combine the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme with French Immersion programming.

The decision to pursue IB authorization flowed from an extensive community consultation process. The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people, who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The program focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside.
