Mandarin Bilingual Program

In the 2023–24 school year, Rosslyn School will start phasing out the Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual Program. Students who are currently enrolled in the program will be able to continue through Grade 9.

Starting in September 2023, Rosslyn School will no longer offer the Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual program at the Grade 7 level. The following year, the school will stop offering the program at the Grade 8 level, and it will be phased out entirely by September 2025 after the current group of students has completed Grade 9.

Students who will be entering Grade 7 in September and wish to enrol in the Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual program may register at Londonderry School or another junior high school that offers the program

Academic Enrichment Program is developed and designed to enhance educational opportunities for Rosslyn School students (more information here).  

Starting in September 2022, Pre-Advanced Placement will no longer be available at our school and will be replaced by the Academic Enrichment Program.

Like Pre-Advanced Placement, the Academic Enrichment Program will offer students challenging academic experiences by deepening their learning in the core subjects of mathematics, science, English language arts and social studies. The program will prepare junior high students for academic programming in high school, including Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate.
