Schedule of a student

A day in the life of a Face student

The addition of the four artistic subjects makes the schedule at FACE heavier than at most schools, particularly at the high school level.

Students develop a strong sense of independence as a result of their complex schedules, but they must already be highly adaptive and independent when they enter grade 1. Students may change classrooms every period, that is to say every 50 minutes and not all will be comfortable in this type of friendly but bustling environment.
The school is five stories high, and students walk from one class to another and take the stairs several times a day which is a natural addition to the physical education curriculum. Students move directly from one class to the next and are not expected to loiter in the hallways.

Elementary level
Starting in grade 1, students have a timetable similar to that of high school students. While they don’t spend the day with one homeroom teacher, they do take all their classes with the same group of students. With some exceptions, they stay with this same group right through to the end of secondary 5.

Elementary, grades 1, 2, and 3
The schedule for grades 1, 2, and 3 differs slightly from that of other grades, due to school bus restrictions.

  • Classes start: 8:00 a.m.
  • From 8:00 to 8:15, students meet with their family teacher, who helps them get organized for the day.
  • Recess: 9:55 to 10:15 a.m.
  • Lunch: 11:05 to 12:00 in the cafeteria (See « Cafeteria » section.)
  • Classes end: 2:10 p.m.
  • From 2:10 to 2:15 p.m. students prepare for departure
