In The Classroom

King’s-Edgehill is a junior and senior high school that offers ESL support to international students who are enrolled in secondary school. International students who study at a junior or senior high school work towards their secondary education while learning English. Canadian and international students attend all classes together, except for one ESL class, which is offered to meet the academic and linguistic needs of international students.
The Senior School ESL classes are cross-referenced as academic English classes, which means units on media, novels, short stories, poetry, etc, will be covered, as well as regular ESL centred lessons. Some Grade 10, 11 and 12 students will write English proficiency exams, such as TOEFL or IELTS, when they apply to University. In addition to the instruction and practice time in class, students must dedicate a portion of their free time towards preparing for these exams. Staff will help students book their official tests, submit additional score reports, and help students arrange transportation to and from the test centre.
In the Junior School, students will attend regular English classes and may be given the option to attend additional ESL centred classes if required. The junior ESL classes will help students improve their English proficiency, and assistance with preparation of projects (ex. the science fair) in other subject areas will be given.


Tutorial Time: Students in the Senior School can seek extra help every school day from 2:30-3:00 during tutorial time. Teachers will be waiting happily in their classrooms, ready to answer any questions you may have. Students in the Junior School can seek extra help in ESL class, during arranged tutorial time and at advisor meetings.
International Food Days: International food is often prepared for lunch in the School cafeteria. On Wednesdays the School nutritionist will choose a country and prepare a variety of dishes for the School to enjoy.
Celebrating Cultural Events: Students can ask about arranging additional excursions to celebrate national holidays or special occasions. Quite often we go to Halifax by bus and enjoy a delicious feast of authentic cuisine! Students laugh, eat, talk, and sing for hours. It’s fun to be living and studying in Canada, but celebrating other cultures is important, too.
Cooking in the Classroom: Whether it be French, German or ESL class, we love to cook with our students once in a while as a treat to celebrate holidays or special occasions.
A Day in the Life at KES: Students have numerous occasions to meet and interact with people from Canada and all over the world both in and out of the classroom. There are so many wonderful opportunities to learn about new cultures and to speak in English during sports and clubs, in residence, while on a homestay, in art class, in theatre, in band, or while out on a School trip. In addition, we eat breakfast, lunch and dinner together in our spacious cafeteria.
