“Sending my daughter to ECS was the best decision I’ve ever made as a parent. She blossomed into an empowered leader, and our whole family became part of an extraordinary community.”

Many people walk through the doors of Miss Edgar’s and Miss Cramp’s School (ECS) knowing some facts about the Junior School. Prospective parents know that kindergarten is taught 100% in French. They’ve heard that English and French progress to 50% each by Grade 3. They’ve read about the AIM gestural approach to language learning that the teachers employ, the small class sizes, and the experiential learning approach that is the core of the Junior School at ECS. Many even know about the Laval bus that brings students to and from school everyday, giving girls an opportunity to solidify friendships and unwind together. Yet walking through the doors of ECS is an extraordinary thing. There is an intangible feeling of community and opportunity, of belonging, of empowerment, of joy - the very texture of childhood. There is only so much that can be told about a place as special as ECS. Truthfully, you have to feel it to believe it.

From Kindergarten to Grade 5, girls are empowered through art, language, music and science. In the Exploratorium, students learn through dynamic exploration and are often engaged in STEAM-related activities and “Design Thinking” in order to discover solutions to complex, everyday problems. These girls, lit from within, are growing to be the leaders of tomorrow.

The Junior School at ECS is a school within a school. To learn more, including information on the four-year full-tuition Eva Fraser Kingsman Scholarship, which will be offered to a new Grade 3 student starting in Fall 2018, please visit www.ecs.qc.ca
