A great example of how to promote & explain a program

The road map for the Mandarin immersion program in the Forest Hills Public Schools, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I recently ran across the web page for the Forest Hills Mandarin immersion program in Grand Rapids, a town in Western Michigan and wanted to give them a shout out. They launched in 2008 and will have their first class enter high school in the fall of 2017.

I especially like the “road map” they provide which clearly lays out how the program works from Kindergarten through high school, describing how it works in each grade  and where the schools are – and where students can veer off.

This is all too often a mystery in many school districts, with nowhere to go to clearly see the full program and only parent lore to explain it. Kudos to Forest Hills for being so helpful and transparent.

You can see their full web page here.

    Thanks for sharing the example from Forest Hills Public Schools. Just a heads up, the link in your article goes back to MIPC instead of to Forest Hills as you intended. A simple thing to google and find it myself, but you might want to fix it.

    (Your posts help keep me interested in MI, even though my child has not been in a program for 3 years now)
