All parents want their children to attend the best school in a new place, but in Prince Edward Island, this isn’t a concern because all schools are equally as good. All schools in our public school system are safe and inclusive, and all teachers follow the same curriculum.
There are 62 public schools across the Island for children, from kindergarten to grade 12 – six of those are French, and 29 offer a combination of English and French-immersion. Students attend a designated school, based on geographical location of the family home and language preference.
If your family does not live within walking distance of your child’s school, your child may travel safely to and from school by bus.
Students participate in art, music, and athletics, in addition to traditional subjects of math, English, science, and more.
The school year in Prince Edward Island goes from early September through late June, with students enjoying a summer break when the weather is at its best, in July and August.
Some parents choose to school their children at home, using curriculum from the public school system. Other parents opt for one of the private schools licensed in the province.
