CUMBERLAND — Chinese educators visiting Braddock Middle School Tuesday expressed pleasant surprise that a Chinese Immersion Program is offered in the Allegany County Public Schools system.

“We visit mostly charter and independent schools every month, mostly on the West Coast and in New England,” said Paul O’Sullivan, the marketing director of HD Schools.

O’Sullivan and Jasper Pan, HD Schools’ CEO, were accompanied by Pearl You, a dual languages program consultant contracted by the Allegany County Board of Education for its Chinese Immersion Program.

More than 140 students from kindergarten through sixth grade are enrolled in the program at the West Side School and, for the first time this year, at Braddock Middle School.
