Why should I send my children to Valcartier Elementary School?

Malik Tard (top), Lea Sheridan (left), Sarah McCoubrey, Laurence Kiopini, Stella-Rose Bureau, William Beaulieu, and Chloe Jack had a great time on a inflated bouncy game at the September 2014 "Welcome Back" activity.

Nine years ago, I asked myself that exact question. My oldest was turning 5 and we had to decide if we were going to enroll him in French or English kindergarten. After a few conversations with neighbours and friends we decided to offer an English education to our son.

Of course, I had concerns about this tiny school in Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier. Would it offer a quality learning environment?
