The new principal is a breath of fresh air. He has demonstrated integrity, caring, and professionalism. The difference is night and day! Welcome, Principal Chuang. We're glad you're here.

I agree with the comments from others who believe the school's success has come more as a result of the parents than anything the school has done. The vast majority of the student population are from educated, professional families who are very involved in the daily lives of the students as well as provide many additional enrichment activities (afterschool programs, athletics, music, tutoring, additional language help, etc.). This is naturally going to have an influence on the performance of the kids, and reflect well on the school, regardless of the quality of the school.Pros:- The parent community is great and tries to be very involved. Without them, many of the educational opportunities at the schools (art and science in particular) would suffer- The kids get a good foundation in Mandarin. (I'm simply looking for my child to be able to converse and communicate in Mandarin, not be completely fluent)- For a Chinese immersion, there's a fair (not great, but fair) diversity of the student bodyCons:- There's not a lot of support for physical activity for the kids. Kids are asked to come to school in the morning and be quiet and stand still while waiting for classes to start, because the noise of their playing will disturb the teachers preparing in the morning.- During the school tour, we were told about all the great facilities the school has, including the amphitheater, which I don't believe is ever actually used by the kids.- Parents are asked to perform a large number of activities which I believe should be performed by the teachers. One significant example for me is that the parents are asked to grade the kids' homework.

College Park is just ok. Most of parents who send there kids here is because they want to avoid Chinese schools on weekends. In terms of how fluent they will be, that's anyone's guess. 3rd grade and up, there is no set mandarin curriculum. My understanding is that they're simply translating the common core curriculum and teaching that instead. And I do agree with the other parents that the rising scores is mainly due to the student demographics, and not that the teachers are all that exceptional. Most of the parents here are wealthy with advance degrees and focus heavily on the children's academics. Private tutoring, Kumon, and after school programs are common for the students. My plan is to go all the way up to 5th grade and stop mandarin immersion altogether. The plans for the 6-8th grades are not set in stone and right now it's at Bayside Stem where it is getting very little attention. If you have time and money to donate to this school, this is the school for you. Student to teacher ratio is also on the high side, 24:1. So teachers rely on parents to help correct and grade the homework, be in the room as aids, and of course, help kids outside of class.
