Elementary School

The Elementary School is composed students from Kindergarten to 5th grade. Students learn in Mandarin Chinese and English through two-way immersion instruction. The curriculum framework for student learning is the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP), which is an internationally-recognized curriculum used by the top independent schools in over 130 countries around the world. The IB PYP Curriculum requires that teachers engage students in their learning by providing hands-on, engaging, and differentiated learning activities that use inquiry, reflection and action in every class. Mandarin Chinese, English, Math, Social Studies and Sciences are integrated into transdisciplinary units that go for six weeks. Each grade does six units per year which comprise the 36 week long school year. In the matrix below, which we call our Program of Inquiry, you can see the 6 units that each grade studies from Kindergarten to 5th grade (note that our preschool students, pre-k3 and pre-k4, also take four units and they are included on the matrix):
