A proposed charter school serving MetroWest will focus on bilingual education in Mandarin Chinese, according to a prospectus submitted to the state for approval last month.

The Hop Brook Regional Public Charter School was among 42 charter school proposals received by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education this summer. It was submitted for approval as a Commonwealth charter school.

According to the prospectus, submitted July 30, the school would be located in Marlborough and enroll a maximum of 324 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. It would serve school districts in Berlin, Boylston, Clinton, Framingham, Hudson and Marlborough.

The school would open next fall.

The group that submitted the prospectus consists of Jeannette Landrie, Mark Rearden and Xin Xin of Shrewsbury; Anne-Marie Laine and Richard Williamson of Boxborough; Sanne Dinkel of Westwood, and Janis Peters of Mansfield.

According to their resumes, Landrie, Dinkel and Peters are faculty members at Curry College. Laine teaches at Milton High School while Xin Xin teaches grades 5 through 8 in the Shrewsbury school system.

    Has this been knocked out all together or are they still trying? We live in Michigan with children currently enrolled in a Mandarin Immersion program, and will be relocating to this area in Massachusetts and would like to see this school up and running before we move:).
