Edmonton’s Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual Program is the largest of its kind outside of China with over 30 years of experience.
This program is a partial immersion program, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, where in elementary school 50% of the curriculum is taught in Chinese and 50% in English. Students are taught the same curriculum as others in the same grade level.
The goal of the Chinese Bilingual Program is to have students become functionally fluent in Chinese as well as in English and to develop an appreciation of the language and culture of Chinese-speaking countries. The Chinese Bilingual Program gives students the opportunity to obtain internationally recognized credentials.
Openings for kindergarten starting September 2015 are still available. Please register by contacting the schools directly:
