A Cultural Resource for the Community

Heartland has supported Chinese School for K-12 students and their parents since 1999. Participants include:

  • American born children of Chinese parents or parents of mixed marriage
  • Children adopted by American parents
  • Youth and adults with an interest in Chinese language and culture

Chinese School classes focus on learning to speak, write and comprehend Mandarin Chinese. Activities such as traditional dancing, international chess and cooking provide engaging ways for students to become familiar with China’s rich cultural heritage.

Classes Meet:

Due to COVID-19, Chinese School will be temporarily suspended. We plan to resume instruction in 2021 once it is safe to meet in person. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
