Pathway: Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy (Areas A-F) --> Highland Park Middle School --> Highland Park High School
Our school provides instruction in Mandarin across all core subject areas in order to produce bilingual, bi-literate, and multicultural citizens of the world.
Started in the 2011 school year, our school has been serving kindergarten to 5th grade.
Students master grade-appropriate subject content, become fluent in Mandarin Chinese, and develop skills at or beyond standards set for English-only programs.
The curriculum in the Mandarin Immersion Program includes a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) focus. Kindergarten and first-grade students are taught predominately in Mandarin.
Similarly, 3rd through 5th grade students receive most of their instruction in Mandarin, but also receive 50 minutes of English language arts instruction daily.
