International Student Program

Strathmore High School welcomes international students and provides support to them in many ways. The ESL program includes ESL classes, ESL counselling and regular curriculum English courses specifically for ESL learners.

The counselling department and ESL coordinator can also assist international students with applications to post-secondary schools. Integration of international students with Canadian students is supported in a variety of ways throughout the school year.
