S ince 1982 École Beairsto Elementary has been home to the Vernon School District's early French immersion program. It is the largest single track grade 1-7 French immersion school in British Columbia and the largest elementary school in Vernon. At Ecole Beairsto we strive to have each child have a sense of belonging.
The school has over 6oo students, 26 divisions and a vibrant francophone culture. The school caters to a diverse population comprised of the entire school district. We are centrally located in Vernon on 27 th Street, minutes walking distance from the downtown core. Our location gives many opportunities for walking field trips to the museum, outdoor skating, parks and art galleries. The building itself, a beautiful turn of the century brick edifice, is one of the oldest structures in Vernon, known originally as Vernon Central School (1905).
