Chinese Immersion

Nurturing learners who are curious, confident, and globally minded.

Hopkins XinXing Chinese immersion program is a K-5 total immersion program. All core subject matter is taught in Mandarin Chinese for the full day in kindergarten through grade 2. Students learn to read and write in Mandarin first. English language arts are introduced for the equivalent of one hour per day beginning in grades 3-4, and there is an even distribution of English and Mandarin in grade 5.

XinXing students have Chinese immersion course offerings for grades 6-12 at Hopkins West Middle School and Hopkins High School. Our goal is for students to reach an advanced level of proficiency by the end of grade 12, and to develop bi-literacy in both Chinese and English. Students who complete the full program will graduate Hopkins High School with up to 16 college credits.
