  • Our Preschool offers a bilingual inquiry-based learning approach which fosters children's interests and their natural curiosity, wonder and exploration.
  • Our Elementary and Middle School Programs (K-8) emphasize both English and Chinese languages as well as Eastern and Western cultures so that students have an understanding and appreciation of these two important world languages and cultures of the 21st century.
  • We nurture in each student an open outlook in life, respect for cultural diversity and the beliefs and values of all people, and a sense of commitment and social responsibility.
  • YCIS Silicon Valley’s well-rounded academic program offers students opportunities to find their passions and explore their interests within the context of a challenging curriculum and a safe, nurturing learning environment that meets the development needs of young children.
  • Courses offered in Grades K-8 include violin, music, art, physical education and character education along with core subjects: Chinese Studies, English Language Arts, Science, Math and Social Studies.

  • A dynamic Parent Organization ensures parents are active partners in their children's education.
