    The school has a caring, committed and experienced staff of both administrators and teachers. There is a strong commitment to helping all of the children achieve their highest potential, with diversified programs to support and challenge them throughout their academic career. The Chinese immersion program is exceptional, with highly experienced teachers helping the kids achieve amazing fluency in reading, writing, and speaking in just a few short years. This program may also serve as a magnet for a more diverse group of families than might otherwise be expected from this part of the metropolitan area. Finally, the school encourages kids to collaborate with each other in ways that make for a safe and supportive environment. All things considered, a terrific choice for motivated kids.
    Amazing Chinese immersion Program with highly exceptional, caring, and dedicated native speaking Chinese teachers. My children are completely fluent in reading, writing, and speaking Mandarin. They have thrived at the school and I am thankful that we found out about the great immersion program starting in Kindergarten. There are also lots of great after school programs, e.g. Chess, Art, Spanish, Piano, etc. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a great school in Minnesota. We call it, "The Golden Ticket", where you get a private school education at a public school price.
