    My first school in th US. All the teachers are nice and prepared us well for middle school.

    It's important to remember in ratings of this type that this school has a special purpose. It teaches kids who are new to the U.S. from the Orient English language Chinese language and other elementary school skills while at the same time assisting them with cultural adaptation. Children at the school generally have only one year to adapt before passing into other schools in the public school system. The bilingual teachers of Chinese Education Center really put their hearts into their work. I've never seen a more dedicated or hard-working group of teachers.
