Registration Information

     We are currently accepting new application for 2023-2024 school year.   

     The spring semester will start on January 7, 2024 and end on May 5, 2024, every Sunday for 15 weekends. For Chinese, there are eight comprehensive courses from preschool to AP Chinese which will run from 2 to 4 pm. From 4 to 5 pm, the School will inaugurate special interest classes, including Fun with Mathematics, Challenge Math, Handicraft, and SAT.

     In addition, in order to better provide children with a safe learning environment, and at the same time ensure the School can sustain modest tuition fees during a period of hyperinflation, four adults will be on duty every Sunday from 1:45 pm to 5:10 pm during the school term. Two will be directors of the School, and the other two will be parents of our students. The staff on duty is responsible for the arrangement of desks and chairs during the day, cleaning of the classroom, and safety of students during and between classes. We will charge an additional deposit of $30 per semester per family as service fee at the time of registration.

      The detailed charging standards are as follows (total basic fee = registration fee + Chinese lesson fee + book fee where applicable + service fee).

      1. Chinese class only:
(a) $235 for preschool ($10+$170+$25+$30)
(b) $225 for grades 1 to 6 ($10+$170+$15+$30)
(c) AP Chinese class requires $210 ($10+$170+$30)

      2. For Chinese class plus a specialty class, an additional $90 will be added to the above fees.

      Note 1: Craft class teachers may collect an additional, very small amount of material fees.

      Note 2: Those who register after December 3, 2023, will be subject to a late registration charge of $10.

      Note 3: Only the new student needs to pay textbook fee.

     To register, parents should first complete a Google Application Form. Please make a check payable to "The Mandarin Chinese School" or "MCS", and pay tuition in-person to school's registration staff before or on 12/3/2023, along with the completed and signed Waiver Form.

      Please be sure to fill in the child's current grade level and the grade of the Chinese school in the registration form. We will coordinate the placement of students after the registration is complete. In addition, we also welcome novice students to enroll in the K class. Please kindly share the above information within your social network as appropriate. The School or individual teachers will notify the parents as soon as possible to confirm placement and share details on starting classes.

      No refund requests will be accepted this semester unless the class is canceled due to the lower enrollment, and students may only apply for one class change within two weeks of the start of semester, subject to availability.

      We look forward to finally reuniting with our children and parents after a long hiatus in our lively and interesting classrooms and also look forward to warmly welcoming new students and their parents into our MCS family.


     There are eleven Chinese classes (from a preparation class to 10th grade), five  levels of math classes (Fun Math, Challenge Math, Olympiad Math, and SAT Math), VEX, and Drawing classes. If you are not sure into which class your kids will fit, consult the school principals. Your kids may be a visitor in a class for the first time to see if he/she fits the curriculum.  Please see Ms. Ting Bai at MCS  for details, or you can email us with your questions.  If you want to know more about classes and teachers, please enter classrooms.

     Textbooks are needed for all Chinese classes. Other classes such as Drawing may have special requirements for materials. Ask your teacher for more specific information. You can find Chinese exercise references in our  library.
