Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School Reviews

Incredible teachers, the most amazing experiences, and a very tight-knit peer group all make PVCICS an incredible choice for any student. There is a great deal of diversity of interests in the class -- students hoping to become neurosurgeons, fashion designers, experimental physicists -- and everyone brings a unique personality to the classroom. Because of the student:faculty ratio, classes are fairly small, so these personalities are each appreciated to an even greater extent!

The IB program is also a hugely important aspect of the school, and it provides a very rigorous education that many colleges have a great deal of respect for.

First off, as a recent graduate student from PVCICS, I can only give my review on the high school.
The school has fantastic teachers who are extremely willing to help the students to learn. They also put in a ton of effort into making sure the students are doing well in the IB program. The IB coordinator is extremely organized with years of experience in IB prior to teaching in this school, which helped my class to navigate through the IB program with minimal confusion. The only thing the school doesn't have is the space and a cafeteria. Other than that, the school is fantastic and I highly recommend it if you want your kids to learn chinese as well!
As a senior who has gone through the whole program starting in first grade, I have gotten a lot out of my time here. The Chinese immersion program has given me a very high level of proficiency that I would not have been able to achieve anywhere else. The Chinese coupled with the rigorous IB curriculum makes the academics extremely strong. The teachers are very connected to their students, and there is a strong sense of community within the student body. The focus on academics can be stressful, but overall the work is very manageable. The sports could use improvement, but in the last couple of years there has been a lot of work to get teams started and competitive.
