    There is another Mandarin & Spanish Immersion Program in Costa Mesa, CA.
    Located in Orange County. You can find more information on the website.

      I can’t tell from their web site how many hours a day the students have Mandarin. Can you tell me, by grade?

    Getting ready to relocate to Dallas and I cannot believe in a city that size there are NO mandarin immersion schools. How does one go about starting one?

      I too am interested in starting one. What have you found out so far? We will move sooner if we had a good option for or elementary aged children
