    I have a 7 yr old son in french immersion. We are moving to London and I need to know what FI school is the highest ranking and what is a good neighbourhood to move into?

    Why don't check out the tvdsb.ca website and look at the eqao testing results./ I know that Jeanne Sauve was popular.

    It would also depend on if you want FI in the Catholic Board or the Public Board.

    We don't mind either. Just don't know which area of London to concentrate on?

    You can only enroll for the catholic board if you are catholic. I have really no idea which FI school is better. My kids go to Huron Heights and its a great school. I can't speak for any others.

    I live in Byron and I love it. My kids go to their home school though (not FI). I had been thinking about FI until I saw how awesome my daughter was doing in at our school so we kept her there rather then busing her half way across the city.

    Thank you all or the replies. I'm so confused! Where do you find the eqao scores?

    Hi,
    We are in a similar situation, moving to London in July 2014 and are looking for a FI school for our DD now in gr 4. We bought a house just north of Fanshawe & Wonderland and as school boundaries go, we would belong to Jeanne Sauve. There is little information online about this school and would appreciate if anyone could share their knowledge and experiences regarding school's staff and extracurricular activities.
    Thank you.
