About Our Program 项目介绍
The program provides opportunities for students to learn grade level content from TK to 12th grade in two languages enabling them to reach the goal of high levels of proficiency in both Mandarin and English. Upon high school graduation, they are fully qualified to receive the Seal of Biliteracy recognition. We warmly welcome all interested families to join the rewarding program, giving our children an edge in college admissions and more career options in the future.
Students may enter the dual language program in TK, kinder or first grade. Students are taught the same curriculum as their peers in English-only classrooms and are expected to meet the same state standards. The Mandarin program follows a 80/20 model where students begin learning in Mandarin 80% of the time and English 20%. By the end of 5th grade they are learning all content in both languages half of the day.
