Pre-Primary and Primary Schools


In both Pre-Primary and Primary Schools, our program is based on the following core ideas:

  • An inquiry-based approach which is child-centered not teacher-centered.
  • The children are active learners and encouraged to ask questions and find the answers.
  • It is highly trans-disciplinary, that is, it integrates the various academic subjects together.
  • It is highly process-oriented rather than content-driven.
  • Children will be motivated to become lifelong learners.

Pre-Primary School (Pre-K, ages 2-5)

The curriculum for the Pre-K student is inquiry-based and developmentally appropriate. Pre-Kindergarten is 100% Mandarin. We provide support as needed for students who enter without any Mandarin knowledge. It has been demonstrated world-wide in language acquisition that there is a very fast learning period for children in this age group. We also offer a reinforced English option for students from non-English speaking families.

Kindergarten and Elementary Grades (ages 5 and up)

Kindergarten Language of Instruction: 80% Mandarin / 20% English
First Grade Language of Instruction: 70% Mandarin / 30% English
Second Grade Language of Instruction: 60% Mandarin / 40% English
Third Grade and up Language of Instruction: 50% Mandarin / 50% English

We will provide support as needed for students who enter without any Mandarin knowledge. We will also offer a reinforced English option for students from non-English speaking families.
