Northwest Chinese Academy Reviews

2 reviews
Having learned the language as an adult, lived for years in China and Taiwan, and sent my three children to various Mandarin immersion schools, I can confidently say that Northwest Chinese Academy by far offers the most rigorous educational offering I have seen this side of the Pacific. The fact that they are courageous enough to use the 人民教育出版 curricular material for language arts and math, expecting their students remain at an age/year appropriate level as kids in the Mainland, is proof of their high standards. The small class sizes create a personal, family-like environment that my children adore. I am so very pleased that my children attend NWCA!

Sending our daughter to NWCA was the best decision we ever made and I strongly feel that this is the best elementary school in the Pacific Northwest.
Northwest Chinese Academy is a mandarin immersion school. All the classes, except English, are conducted in chinese. The math curriculum is the same as used by students in China and it is definitely more advanced than the comparable programs in the US.
And the children thrive. Because of the small class sizes and the "everything mandarin" approach, they just seem to effortlessly absorb the chinese that is spoken around them and before you know it, they are bilingual.
But the goal isn't merely to produce bilingual children, that's just an added benefit. The goal is to help a child reach his or her maximum potential - and in this NWCA delivers as no other school does. Look no further than the schools test scores to see that. These kids are at the top, even their English scores.
