Mandarin Immersion Program
A Snapshot of the Mandarin Immersion Program
From the moment students step into one of the Mandarin Immersion classrooms, they are fully immersed in the language and Chinese culture.
The school day is structured so that students spend 50 percent of the day learning subjects in English, and the other half of the instructional day learning subjects in Mandarin.
Students in kindergarten-4th grade are taught Math and Science, with a heavy emphasis on literacy in Mandarin. Reading, Writing, and Social Studies are taught in English.
Starting in 5th grade, students learn Science and Social Studies with an emphasis on literacy in Mandarin, and Math will be taught in English.
What Parents Have to Say
My daughter loves this program! She is engaged in her learning and is excited to go to school every day. Her teachers are dedicated professionals who have fostered her academic growth in all subject areas. We are so fortunate to have this high-quality program available to us in our neighborhood school!"
– Nancy Spencer, mother of a 2nd grader.
I feel that having our children in a Mandarin immersion program is helping them to be better prepared to compete in the global economy. I have loved watching my daughter’s competency in speaking and understanding Mandarin grow year after year and feel it will be a huge advantage to learn a second language at such a young age.”
