What do you mean by French immersion school programs?
These are school programmes that begin in elementary, middle or secondary schools in which some of the subjects are taught in French and French is spoken as the language of conversation - the goal, obviously, is fluent bilingualism. The programmes vary quite widely, but are considered highly successful, with immersion students not only learning French but performing better across a range of measures than non-immersion students, although this may reflect a selection factor (brighter kids tending to go into the programme). Here's a bit more on the subject from Statistics Canada: http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/81-004-x/2 ... 23-eng.htm
