Arabic Bilingual provides students with opportunities to acquire and maintain language skills in Arabic and English. Evansdale School currently has Arabic Bilingual programming in grades 1 through 4. We will be adding grade 5 for September 2021.


  • Develop language and literacy skills in Arabic and English, and use both to communicate 
  • Learn about the cultures of the Arabic-speaking world 


  • Proficiency in English and Arabic
  • Improved academic achievement
  • Improved skills in the student’s first language

  • To register in Kindergarten or Grade 1, no previous knowledge of Arabic is required.
  • Students entering the program after Grade 1 are considered on an individual basis.


All Edmonton Public Schools programming is based on curriculum determined by Alberta Education. Students enrolled in Arabic Bilingual will receive the same high-quality education available in all of our programs.
