The Chinese School of Iowa City is run by non-compensated parent volunteers on a rotating basis. Our families come from heritage and non-heritage backgrounds. We share a common interest in the traditional Chinese characters and work together to promote a rich language and cultural community. The teachers of our school have joined us for the same reasons. They are fluent Chinese speakers, typically from Taiwan. We have a strong record of teacher's competency and teacher retention. Whenever possible, teachers are promoted with their students from year to year so that teachers can maximize their knowledge of students and facilitate student-centered instructions on speaking, listening, reading, and writing proficiency.
Our typical classroom size, determined by student's skill levels and ages, is typically 4-8 students. We keep the class size small to tailor to students' individual strengths and learning needs. Throughout the school year, students are taught traditional characters using注音符號 (BoPoMoFo), Taiwan’s pronunciation system. In addition, students are exposed to the cultural traditions and history of China and Taiwan.
We meet on Sundays from 1:30-4:30pm at Congregational United Church of Christ in Iowa City. It is located at 30 N. Clinton St., Iowa City, IA 52245.
