Eastlake has a Chinese Immersion program beginning in first grade. In the school year 2015/16, the program will include first through sixth grades. Students are randomly selected to participate from parent applications submitted each spring. Students enrolled in the program receive instruction for half of the day in Chinese and half of the day in English. We follow a two-teacher model with the students changing classrooms in the middle of the school day. The entire school will be learning about Chinese culture and traditions so that all students are exposed to a global education and experience.
