Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Founded 1981, Chinese American International School is a Pre-K to eighth grade Mandarin Chinese English dual language immersion independent school.

Teaching approach of the school

What sets CAIS apart from other schools is its Chinese English dual language immersion program. Students spend alternating full days in English and in Chinese and they learn through both languages. In language arts, math, science and music in both languages, students are stimulated, challenged and educated to be the best that they can be, intellectually, morally, physically and emotionally. CAIS believes it is important to tend to both the head and the heart; to nurture and support a child emotionally while at the same time challenging them intellectually. Students learn critical thinking and problem solving skills while laughing, playing, having fun, and feeling supported while learning.
