Wei Yu International Charter School will be a K-8 public charter Mandarin immersion school petitioning in West San Jose . The school is aiming to open in the fall of 2016 with a target of two classes of Kindergarten and two classes of first grade.
We will utilize a one-way Mandarin immersion model. Students will be offered a challenging, Common Core-aligned curriculum starting with 90% instruction in Mandarin and 10% in English. Children will initially receive more instruction in Mandarin because it will require more time to learn a foreign language in an English dominant society. Based on this immersion model, subjects taught in Mandarin will gradually transfer to English in upper grades.
