“I would like to thank the parents and students for choosing the ETSB and assure them that our teams of dedicated personnel are focused on student success. We take this responsibility very seriously as we have over 6400 students counting on us” expressed Mr. André Turcotte, Director General of the Eastern Townships School Board.
Adult Education & Vocational Training…reaching your goals!
In addition, our four Adult Education and Vocational Training Centres will help over 1100 students throughout the year to achieve their goals. Be it finishing high school, getting a certificate, or changing careers and taking on a new challenge, the personnel in our centres are professionals trained and dedicated to guiding our adult students so that they can reach their potential.
International Students…experiencing the journey of a lifetime!
Our successful International Student Program will be welcoming 64 students from across the globe into our schools and communities this year. Many will become part of a new family in our homestay program, providing a unique and up close cultural exchange.
The Eastern Townships School Board provides educational services for students in the Estrie and Montérégie areas with 20 elementary schools, three high schools, two adult education centres, two vocational training centres, a distance education and an international student program. We offer students the advantage of studying in a bilingual environment, led by caring adults and supported with a comprehensive technology initiative that is student focused.
