Mother Tongue Program

ISK is introducing the Mother Tongue Program. There is a great deal of research to show that children who have a strong foundation in their home language are more successful at school than monolinguals and enjoy a greater feeling of self-worth and identity.

Who is the program for?

Students enrolled at ISK that are fluent in a mother tongue other than English.

The Mother Tongue Program is opened:

  • to all languages (minimum of 5 students per class required)
  • to all students in Grade 1 to Grade 5
  • to all students in Grade 6 to Grade 8 starting September 2017
  • to kindergarteners starting in January 2018


1h x week after school, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday from 3:45-4:45 p.m., OR Wednesday from 1:40 - 2:40 p.m.

School bus transport is available every day at 5 p.m. except for Wednesdays.On Wednesdays, students will need to be picked up from school by a parent or a guardian.
  • Class taught by native speakers holding a teaching certification or numerous years of experience teaching the language.
  • 1 semester commitment
  • Classes currently offered: Hebrew, French, Hindi***

*** Additional classes available upon request.

Reasons why you should enroll your child in the Mother Tongue program:
