CHINESE IMMERSION PROGRAM

WHY IMMERSION?

More than forty years of research consistently documents the power of immersion programs to help students attain high levels of second language proficiency.

WHY CHINESE?

Chinese is the most widely spoken first language in the world.  China is heir to the traditions of one of the world’s richest and most ancient cultures and home today to the world’s second largest economy.  Its political, economic, and cultural impact in generations to come will be significant.

ANY PROVEN BENEFITS?

• Long Term Second Language Skills

• Improved Performance on Standardized Tests

• Enhanced Cognitive Skills

• Increased Cultural Sensitivity

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

The immersion program seeks to enroll next year’s 1st grade students of varying backgrounds and all abilities.   However, it may not be a wise choice for children experiencing communication delays in their primary language.  Placement is made based on space availability.
