Mandarin Immersion Education in Redwood City
Redwood City School District's (RCSD) Mandarin Immersion program brings together Mandarin and English-speaking students and families seeking a promising future of being bilingual, biliterate, and academically-enriched.
In an ever-expanding global economy, our nation will need leaders that are biliterate and multi-culturally adept.
What if the adult you are raising could build relationships across cultures as they speak, understand others in their native language, and learn better verbal and non-verbal cues while increasing their cognitive abilities?
Our Mandarin Immersion program not only provides a rigorous and innovative educational curriculum but also prepares our students to be 21st century leaders empowered with the ability to speak the world’s two most prevalent languages.
Did you know? Mandarin is the most popular spoken language in the world, with over a billion speakers!
In our program, we offer a unique immersion program from transitional kindergarten through 5th grade at Orion Alternative School and 6th through 8th grade at Kennedy Middle School. We focus on proficiency in English and Mandarin, with achievement of core academic competencies across both languages and a heightened geographical, cultural and civic understanding of the world through a global lens. The goal is to have the next generation to be confident young adults who can move comfortably between languages and cultures. In an ever-expanding global economy, our nation will need its future leaders to be fluent in multiple languages and cultures.
