“YCIS feels like home away from home. The sense of community one gets from being here is astounding. I have worked at many schools so I can say with confidence that the students and parents here are phenomenal. They are extremely supportive and generous in many ways. I cannot begin to thank them enough for all they do. My favorite thing about working here is the diversity. We have many students who besides speaking Mandarin, also speak several other languages. It’s all very impressive!”

“I choose YCIS because I like that the school promotes co-teaching partnerships with English and Chinese teachers in a bilingual environment. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to work in YCIS. I am so glad to work with all the wonderful teachers and parents and staff members. I love YCIS and like to do whatever I can to make YCIS better and better. My goals for our students are to create a culture-rich Chinese and English language learning environment, develop children’s abilities in listening, speaking, reading, and writing with both languages and facilitate children’s verbal communication to express and communicate themselves effectively.”
