About Us

Mission Statement:

The Wellesley Chinese Language School is founded on the premise that everyone can learn Chinese, whether coming from a bilingual, "heritage" background or beginning Chinese as a monolingual adult. Our school strives to educate, challenge, and inspire Wellesley and its surrounding communities by presenting a quality curriculum incorporating Chinese language learning classes and Chinese cultural studies for both children and adults, thereby promoting cross-cultural understanding. We are an open and affirming community whose goal is to provide a positive learning experience to help students speak, read, and write.  Our goal is to teach students to effectively communicate in Mandarin Chinese through learning Chinese culture.

Wellesley Chinese Language School admits students of any race, color, gender, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

1. Introduction 
As the number of Chinese families increases in Wellesley and its vicinity towns, it is apparent that a Chinese language school is needed in Wellesley. In the greater Boston area, there are approximately 13 Chinese language schools. These schools are mostly non-profit, weekend operated. These schools have been very successful, and children are learning to speak, read, and write the Chinese language. Besides Chinese, children also participate in cultural activities that are offered by the schools, such as Chinese singing, dancing, drawing, martial arts, etc. 

2. School Commitment
As a member of Wellesley community, our school, a non-profit organization, will not only teach Chinese to students of Chinese descent, but we are also offering this learning opportunity to any children and adults who are interested in learning Chinese. Through our school education effort, we hope to create awareness of the Chinese culture and promote cultural diversity in the Wellesley community. We envision that our effort will enrich our children’s minds through language and cultural education and encourage children to embrace differences in the world. 

3. Vision of the School 
We envision that our effort will enrich our children’s minds through language and culture education and encourage children to embrace differences in the world. We are an independent school unaffiliated with any religious or political institution.

4. School Name 
The school name will be “Wellesley Chinese Language School” (WCLS).
