Open Quote I am a parent and an Educator, and I will say that this school is terrible. The school had great potential. But with all it's wheeling and dealings it is not the school that will provide your children with the educational tools they need to survive in the real world. The current Principal is worse than the previous and there is no structure or consistency. The lower grade teachers are constantly changing and remain inexperienced in the grade level they teach. It is a complete mess. Not to mention there is no real science instruction in the lower school. The children are suppose to receive science twice a week and only receive instruction once a week. In addition they did not have a math coach who was equipped to teach real math. The school lost the math coach and used the teachers who were not licensed to teach math instruction. The entire PTA is against the principal making it impossible for the school to make decisions that would benefit the school as a whole. It will finally be a diversified forum of parents from different cultural backgrounds who will be able to speak for the school through the eyes of there children. The school does not teach history from all cultural backgrounds creating a lack of universal knowledge for children to use in their fundamentals of education. Please do your homework and ask to sit in your child's classroom to make your own informal observation. The rating to this school is not what it seems. The majority of the parents who attend this school are of Asian background and cannot advocate for themselves. Choose another school that will provide your child with strong writing and math skills. DO NOT COME TO THIS SCHOOL. The dual language is a joke and is only effective if your child started in pre-k... Close Quote

Open Quote We are thrilled with our child's progress in Chinese and English. However, starting in pre-K the school day is very long and there is a lot of homework. Putting your child in this school is a lifestyle choice for her and for you. Forget about after-school sports teams or music lessons. Studying 2 languages at the same time leaves little room for anything else. This is not a school for free spirits interested in creative education and/or diversity.
The Taiwanese model is followed, meaning kids are taught to the test, have intense academic expectations/work and expected to sit quietly and pay attention at all times. Children wear uniforms. Academics are everything and the arts or sports are distant runner-ups. Test scores and attendance are stressed by the administration.
The extremely long school day (8:30-5:30 mandatory attendance) is hard on the kids but helpful for working parents. Children are expected to attend the 6-week summer camp to keep up their Chinese over the summer.
If your child has a learning disability or attention deficit s/he will not find the support needed to meet the huge demands of this program. You need to speak Chinese or be willing to get your child tutoring with someone who is fluent. If you do not read Chinese you will not even be able to do pre-K homework with your child.
I love Shaung Wen but my kid tested into the city's most competitive gifted magnet schools (which we turned down in favor of this school) and I am married to a Chinese-speaker. Otherwise I would not even consider this extremely demanding school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
