Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy
36 Best Public Elementary Schools in Minnesota
- St. Paul Public School District, MN
Parent: Niche really needs to update their research: test scores for Jie Ming have been out for two years and have yet to be added to Niche’s website. Beyond the phenomenonal test scores (consistently top 6 in the whole state) are the excellent teachers and staff who always have the highest of expectations for their students. Students almost always live up to these sky-high expectations and I have seen very little evidence that students are overwhelmed or “pushed” to perform. My kindergartner has been thriving in his classroom and exceeding so many benchmarks of academic and social development. By the end of the 2nd year, most of the kiddos not only reach exceedingly high academic achievements (STEM and art!). But obtain high levels of fluency in Mandarin. Jie Ming was a no-brainer for us and our kindergartner’s first year has solidified our satisfaction with the school!

Parent: Heritage Christian Academy has been a great school for our children to attend. We are serious about our children being taught from the Bible - this school does it! Teachers, staff, and administration love the Lord and demonstrate that in the many ways they care for students. Academics are emphasized in a way that makes our kids want to achieve high grades and test scores. The athletic and fine arts programming as enriched our kids' experience. There are very strong athletic teams with opportunities for our kids to participate at the highest levels. We are appreciative of way the administration and teachers have invested in our lives as a family.
