Links to the Chronicle’s series on Starr King

This series, written by San Francisco Chronicle Education Writer Jill Tucker, covers the first year of Mandarin Immersion at Starr King. It’s a nice picture of the school. One thing to keep in mind — Tucker only visited Starr King because Jose Ortega’s Mandarin program didn’t begin until the next year. But please keep in mind that if Tucker had spent a year at Jose Ortega, it would seem just as wonderful!
