Hudson Way is actually the only private Mandarin immersion program in New York. While there are multiple other private schools that make that claim, Hudson Way is the only one that is actually 50/50 Mandarin.
From the school:
We are very excited to announce that in response to rapidly increasing enrollment we have secured a new larger space at 525 W. 52nd St. in time for the 2019-2020 school year.
This new space, totaling over 20,000 square feet, will be custom built for the school’s use to include state-of-the-art classrooms, office space, a gym, and designated areas for art, music, media and robotics.
Program Additions in September 2019:
  • Spanish track starting in preschool and kindergarten
  • Mandarin Elementary Track for students starting immersion in Kindergarten or Grade 1
  • Extension of our Mandarin program through grade 6 and eventually grade 8
This location will have access to the nearly Dewitt-Clinton Park which features outdoor playing fields and playgrounds, a community garden, and an arts theater. It’s also part of a modern, luxury building that has community space for parent events including rooftop views of the Hudson River.
We are thrilled to share in the excitement of this announcement with our staff, some of whom have been with us since we began our journey in NYC 10 years ago, and with our families who believed us. Your collective commitment to the principles of true immersion have enabled us to develop children who started in preschool and are now in 5th grade achieving skills and knowledge in math, science, and social studies at a high proficiency level in both Mandarin and English higher than we thought possible.  We are excited to see what what the years ahead in this home will bring!

HWIS is partnering with various organizations to bring a series of events starting Dec – June focused on bilingual culture and education for parents and children.  Look for the schedule and sign up!    

Also please spread the word about our information sessions designed to help prospective parents  understand the benefits of immersion, and how our program is unique. Learn about our full immersion model, our experienced teachers and administration, and our experience as the oldest Mandarin and Spanish immersion school in NYC.
