More than half of our 56 English schools offer an immersion program, including early immersion, mid immersion and late immersion, as well as Core French programs.

Why choose the PSB?

Working at the PSB is choosing to propel your career in an environment, which supports people to share their ideas and to take up challenges. Educational success, wellness, communications and resources anchor us as a quality educational organization and an employer of choice. We offer competitive salaries, professional development opportunities and an advantageous benefit package.

Working on Prince Edward Island means choosing to breathe in the ocean air, to walk on warm sandy beaches, to surround yourself by diverse cultures, to experience sea-based culinary delights and to discover a little piece of paradise on Canada’s east coast. It is an ideal place to raise a young family, with all the services of a large city or province. Most people live minutes from their workplace and minutes from the ocean. This is the Island way of life.
