Alice Fong Yu Elementary Reviews

3 reviews
As a Chinese Immersion school, AFY is not for every family. My kids thrived in the small school environment but for others, having the same classmates for 9 years can be stifling and awkward. The majority of teachers are great - caring yet having high expectations and able to get the best out of their students. Unfortunately, parent involvement has declined over the years.

It is a really good school that helps prepare kids for high school. The work load is relatively high, so students end up building tolerance. It's is also a bilingual school, which is a bonus.
Alice Fong Yu does have high test scores. It achieves this by attracting a core group of families that will not let their child fail and assigning lots of homework. Much of the "homework" in elementary school is busy work and does not build the key science , math and english skills needed. It just trains student to hate school and get yelled at by the teachers if they don't conform.
The majority of the actual instruction is left to parents and outside enrichment classes. I would only recommend this school if need daycare for your child. It is a safe and wholesome place, just not focused on teaching.
