Excellence in Education!
 
Lester B. Pearson School Board has 13 secondary schools. . We deliver a rigorous academic curriculum in a structured environment. Each of our schools is dedicated to striving for educational excellence and to preparing students for full and active participation in Canadian, Quebec and global society. We place a high importance on helping our student to become more knowledgeable, more self-directed, and more self-disciplined. We offer excellent services in all of secondary schools.
Overview of our Full Year Secondary Programs
We offer many different models and designs to meet the diverse needs of our international students. In each of our secondary schools, we provide a wide variety of curricular offerings. Students are encouraged to participate in academic, athletic, leadership and student governance activities.
Our schools follow the curriculum as established by the Ministry of Education of Quebec (MEES). Many of our schools also offer the International Baccalaureate program of study. We provide a number of models of supportive and accelerated English-language learning for international students.
In Quebec, the education system requires the completion of  6 years of primary school and 5 years of secondary schooling in order to be successful in obtaining a high school leaving certificate. Following the successful completion of the eleven years of schooling and the receipt of the high school diploma, the students in Quebec generally take an average of five or six years to obtain a baccalaureate degree (two years of CEGEP and three/four years of University).
We also offer an extensive array of Vocational Education programs.
LBPSB  Programs - Full Year Program of Study in Secondary
Students must meet the basic requirements for acceptance into this program (school recommendation, English proficiency, transcript of school marks, financial ability, Canadian visa, etc.).  An Intensive English as a Second Language program is provided to student’s struggling in English.  During the first semester, the students focus is on improving their English skills. We also offer two programs of study for students who have not yet completed their secondary schooling before arriving in Canada. These students complete one year of study in Canada at one of the secondary schools of the Lester B. Pearson School Board.
LBPSB Half Year Program is a Preparatory Program or Cultural Experience
This program is offered for students who wish to come to improve their English skills.  Often recommended prior to starting a full year for students with weak English skills.

English or French Classes are available at the LBPSB:

The Lester B. Pearson School Board is an English school board in the province of Quebec. It is expected that all students have the minimum English skills to be successful in their studies. The level of proficiency may depend on the program but a intermediate level is the minimum requirement. Also, all programs where students are expected to work in the public, French speaking skills (sometimes writing as well) are required.

Consequently....we encourage students with weak English or French skills to enroll in full time language programs (for credits) prior to starting their career program. This will ensure greater success!

For information regarding English or French classes, please contact Gianluca at 514-798-8787 ext. 4 or by email gmuia@lbpsb.qc.ca

To improve your English conversation skills, students may enroll in classes (non-credit) by following the link below:
