Saskatchewan French Immersion School: A Case Study in Best Practice for Aboriginal Students


Michael Cottrell Ted View Suzanne Bronkhurst Kelly Cardinal


Responding to the needs of Indigenous learners to ensure more equitable outcomes in the education system is a pressing issue within the province. This project is a case study exploring the success of Indigenous students at a French emersion school in the province where the majority of Indigenous students are performing at or above grade level. Using a “promising practice” approach this research aims to identify school contexts and factors contributing to this achievement so that they may be better understood and extended more broadly.
