Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual Program

Starting in September 2014 at Marion Carson School, we have offered the Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual Program for students in Kindergarten and Grade 1. Please see the below link to learn more about the program in general.

The Chinese (Mandarin) Bilingual Program provides students with the opportunity to acquire the basic skills for speaking, reading, writing, listening and communicating in both English and Mandarin at a young age. It is a program in which Mandarin and English are used as the languages of instruction, beginning in Kindergarten or Grade 1 and continuing to Grade 9.
