Long Description:
"L'architecture de l'école Marie-Charlotte témoigne d'un mélange de l'architecture moderne et de l'histoire religieuse de l'institution. Le bâtiment de brique imposant s'élève sur trois étages. Ce bâtiment joint deux bâtisses rectangulaires par une insertion centrale qui s'élève plus haut que le reste du bâtiment. Cet ajout volumétrique dynamise le bâtiment par la position un peu en retrait du pavillon central. Cette architecture rappelle celle de l'Académie Saint-Viateur et de l'école les Mélèzes, surtout par le pavillon central présent dans les trois édifices. On peut remarquer une légère alcôve au milieu du pavillon dans laquelle est taillée une croix pour rappeler le passé religieux de l'institution."

Translation:

"The architecture of the Marie-Charlotte school reflects a mixture of modern architecture and the religious history of the institution. The imposing brick building rises on three floors. This building joins two rectangular buildings by a central insertion which rises higher than the rest of the building. This volumetric addition energizes the building by the position a little behind the central pavilion. This architecture recalls that of the Académie Saint-Viateur and the school Larches, especially by the central pavilion present in the three buildings. One can notice a light alcove in the middle of the pavilion in which is cut a cross to recall the religious past of the institution. "
