WELCOME TO CHINGSHIN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Elementary school is a time for surprises; a time when students learn to be scholars and a time for parents to realize milestones are within reach. The Chingshin Academy goal is for our students to feel excited about school every morning, stay curious about academics, and develop positive values.
The Chingshin Academy approach
Our elementary school follows a creative, active, interdisciplinary curriculum that helps children acquire learning skills and bridge them with the wider world. Set in a bilingual environment, our students begin hearing English at a young age, and are constantly exposed to different ways of thinking between their multibackground homeroom teachers. We understand that the primary responsibility of lower school education is to teach learning skills in addition to academics. Thus, at the top of our agenda is to provide children with opportunities for meaningful learning as well as strategies for independent lifelong learning.
