Beechwood is a Français Plus school in which all students and members of the community feel welcome, comfortable and involved. We are dedicated to leading all of our students to achieving personal excellence by fostering intellectual development and curiosity. We have a strong sense of community and family with our students and families.

The Quebec Education Program (QEP) defines course requirements, content, competencies, progressions of learning and the framework for the Evaluation of student learning.
In a Français Plus school, all core subjects are taught in French from Kindergarten to grade 4. This means that students spend the majority of their week in French. Once the students reach grade 4, English Language Arts is introduced and math is also taught in English until grade 6. This means that, from Grade 5 to Grade 6, students spend approximately half their week learning in English and approximately the other half learning in French.
